OMAHA, Neb., (February 24th, 2021) – DCIG is pleased to announce the immediate availability of the 2022-23 DCIG TOP 5 On-Premises SDS Object Storage Solutions report. DCIG evaluated eighteen SDS object storage solutions for an on-premises use case across five different categories. This report provides guidance on the TOP 5 solutions organizations should consider for SDS-based object storage for on-premises deployment. The report is available for free download.
There is little question AWS’s introduction of S3 cloud storage has fueled the adoption of cloud computing and storage. One of the great benefits of the cloud is its simple value proposition: with a credit card, scalable compute and storage infrastructure becomes immediately available.
Certainly, there are good reasons enterprises should leverage the cloud for its convenience and strengths. The public cloud helps companies learn cloud skills and technologies. The ‘however’ is that the cloud does not scale cost-effectively. Rising cloud costs place negative pressures on margins. Cloud costs are a principal reason why organizations are repatriating the data to on-premises or hybrid-cloud (on-premises and cloud) object storage solutions.
Concurrently, the growth of software-defined storage (SDS) in the enterprise represents a broader transition to the software-defined data center, where infrastructure elements such as compute, storage, and networking are abstracted and virtualized. Increasing SDS capabilities, along with its flexibility and cost-efficiencies, fuels SDS demand. SDS expands on the benefits of on-premises object storage through scalability, cost efficiencies, and data management capabilities.
In preparing this report, DCIG evaluated eighteen SDS object storage solutions for a on-premises use-case. The general feature categories evaluated include:
- Deployment capabilities
- Data protection
- Product and performance management
- Technical support
- Licensing and pricing
Based on these criteria, DCIG awarded the following storage solutions a TOP 5 ranking (in alphabetical order):
