SAN JOSE, Calif., Jan. 30, 2018 — Violin® Systems LLC, the enterprise storage industry leader for extreme performance with consistent low latency and data services, was selected as one of four companies highlighted as providing “Innovative Solutions to Data Storage Challenges” in a recently published Frost & Sullivan Stratecast Analysis by Vice President of Cloud Services, Lynda Stadtmueller.

Stratecast collaborates with Frost & Sullivan clients to reach smart business decisions in the rapidly evolving and hypercompetitive Information and Communications Technology markets. Stratecast Perspectives & Insight for Executives (SPIE) Volume 18, Number 1 looked at storage providers that stand out for their innovative solutions and growth potential. Violin was selected as a company worth watching because of its ability to retain and regain the confidence of more than 100 large business customers, including many Fortune 500 companies.

“The company originally made its mark with market-leading hardware-based all-flash array storage systems – only to lose ground as the market shifted to software-based controls and features,” the report states. “Today, the new Violin Systems is turning its culture of innovation toward software development, particularly with the Concerto OS 7 data services platform that support advanced functionality for data scaling, cloud data tiering, data protection, data reduction, and business continuity. The Violin Symphony management system provides granular visibility and insight into the Violin Flash Storage Platform and Violin All Flash Arrays.”

“We are honored to be named among the select few storage companies to watch in Frost & Sullivan’s latest Stratecast,” said Ebrahim Abbasi, Violin Systems’ CEO and president. “Ms. Stadtmueller definitely captured the spirit of our company’s re-emergence when she said that we are returning to our roots as market leader in all-flash arrays by focusing on innovative technology. With an emphasis on software-based solutions, an aggressive product roadmap and commitment to continued innovation, I’m confident that we will not only be a company to watch for 2018 but for many years to come.”
