CAMPBELL, Calif., July 21 /PRNewswire/ — ONStor, a leading provider of clustered NAS solutions for enterprises and content-rich organizations, today announced it has been selected by Everything Channel as a CRN Emerging Tech vendor for its enterprise NAS technology. CRN's Emerging Tech list captures companies that are delivering high margins for solution providers with innovative and easy-to-use technology that undercuts industry giants.
The ONStor Pantera 5000 Clustered NAS solution offers heterogeneous storage and combines n-way clustering, virtual file servers, and single-pool storage to deliver a simple, efficient, and scalable storage solution for unstructured data. The product offers storage managers advanced power management, the ability to scale to massive capacities at a greater density, plus file server consolidation features. Compared with other enterprise NAS solutions, the Pantera 5000 is significantly more green, costs about half as much to deploy and cuts management time to a fraction. In high-growth environments, the savings add up further thanks to Pantera's disruption-free linear scaling model.
ONStor solutions are available through a global network of resellers and distribution partners. The company offers a comprehensive, multi-tiered reseller program aimed at providing resellers and system integrators with special discounts, training, installation and accreditation services to support and sell ONStor's award-winning scalable clustered NAS products. Through this program, resellers can receive more leads, gain broad support from all ONStor sales and technical resources as well as generate a strong business proposition on every opportunity.
According to the CRN Emerging Tech Survey, the top reasons that solution providers implement emerging technologies include: the technology is superior to other products in the market segment; the technology compliments a solution providers' existing practice areas; emerging vendors provide better services opportunities; emerging vendors pay better attention to partners; emerging vendors offer higher margins, customers want alternative product choices; and emerging vendors have better joint marketing programs. In addition, 61 percent of solution providers surveyed plan to increase the number of emerging technology vendors they partner with in the next 12 months.
"New and innovative vendor partners can help spur profitable new ideas that Solution Providers can use to build revenue and customer loyalty, and the CRN Emerging Tech list is where Solution Providers go to find these vendors," said Robert C. Demarzo, senior vice president and editorial director, Everything Channel editorial.
Vendors who make the CRN Emerging Tech list must have an established solution provider program and formal guidelines for recruiting channel partners. They must demonstrate that their direct sales mix is trending down as evidenced by the company's revenue history, a channel positive or channel neutral strategy for internal sales compensation, and not be a dominant market share player. Final selection to the Emerging Technology list was made at the discretion of the CRN editorial team after a review of the submitted information and conversations with current or targeted partners.
