Vendors selected for the Cool Vendor report are innovative, impactful and intriguing.

Pavilion Data Systems, an industry pioneer in NVMe-oF technologies, today announced that it has been included in Gartner's April 2018 “Cool Vendors in Storage Technologies, 2018” report by Dave Russell, Arun Chandrasekaran, Julia Palmer, Garth Landers, Valdis Filks and Raj Bala. The report recognizes five disruptive private storage vendors who exemplify innovative approaches to addressing the top storage pain point of managing data growth to support expanding and evolving business demands.

“We believe our inclusion in the ‘Cool Vendor’ report further validates the need for a new approach to storage design in rack-scale applications,” said Gurpreet Singh, CEO of Pavilion Data. “The dominant server-side storage architecture within rack-scale environments generates both operational and cost challenges. By introducing the Pavilion Data Rack-Scale Flash Storage Array, our customers receive the best of both worlds: the performance of direct-attached storage with the flexibility, manageability, and economics of shared resources.”

Gartner recommends I&O leaders focused on accelerating infrastructure innovation and agility should accelerate the adoption of new storage technologies, protocols, and deployment models by examining emerging vendor solutions that have recently come to market, often delivering new capabilities ahead of more established providers. By utilizing patented technology, the Pavilion Data Rack-Scale Flash Storage Array delivers more than 100 GB/s of throughput, 100u latency and 20 million IOPS in a 4RU modular chassis with zero host footprint.
