Zadara is Named a Leader in GigaOm’s Storage-as-a-Service Sonar Report

Company Outperformed the competition in Breadth of Solution, Multi-tenancy, Business Model and Flexibility, Compared to Other Leading Storage Players

Irvine, Calif., Sept. 21, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Zadara, the edge cloud leader, today announced that it has been placed in the ‘leader’ position in GigaOm’s Storage-as-a-Service (STaaS) Sonar Report, beating out competitors including HPE, NetApp, IBM, Pure Storage, and more. In the report, Zadara was highlighted for offering a solid and true STaaS model for users of all sizes; and for being easy to use, with integrated EC2-compatible services, along with simple and consistent pricing.

According to the report, “Zadara’s solution can be accessed via major cloud providers, local MSPs (with more than 250 partners around the world), and on premises. When adjacent to a hyperscaler, the minimum commitment is just one hour, setting Zadara apart from the competitors.”

GigaOm’s STaaS Sonar Report highlights leading vendor offerings to help IT organizations assess competing solutions in the context of well-defined features and criteria. Zadara achieved a rating of ‘exceptional’ in categories relating to cost, expansion, ease of use, data plane and protocol support and multi-tenancy. 

The report stated, “Customers can also configure dedicated virtual private storage arrays (VPSAs) that do not share storage resources with any other customer. For dedicated on-site STaaS, a minimum six-month contract is required, which is still substantially less than the 12 months required by competitors. Upgrades are transparent to the customer, as the system is fully managed by Zadara and its partners.”

“It is more important than ever for organizations to be able to use cloud-like options that offer agility and flexibility and Zadara is a true leader in the STaaS industry,” said GigaOm analyst, Justin Warren. “Their pricing is also simple and consistent and is based on capacity and throughput use. Zadara puts ease of use, price and minimal commitment at the center of their business model.”

"We are delighted to once again receive recognition as the leader in GigaOm's Sonar Report for our StaaS offering," said Yoram Novick, CEO of Zadara. "Our fully-managed, distributed edge cloud technology is designed to offer a competitive advantage to our MSP and Enterprise customers by providing comprehensive, flexible, and simple cloud services while removing the complexity and burden of traditional infrastructure. We appreciate that we continue to receive validation of this successful model from GigaOm, our customers, and partners.”
