Excelero Named a 2018 Cool Vendor in Storage Technologies by Gartner

Among the storage vendors cited as disruptive, innovative, impactful and intriguing; we believe we help make the software-defined data center a reality with shared NVMe at local performance

SAN JOSE, CA April 26, 2018—Excelero, a disruptor in software-defined block storage, today announced that it has been included in the list of “Cool Vendors in Storage Technologies, 2018” by Gartner, Inc.

The report, available to Gartner clients here, relates how “I&O leaders responsible for storage services continue to be challenged in meeting expanding business requirements with more cost-effective solutions.”  The report names five “disruptive private storage vendors for their abilities to address current and upcoming issues.”

Since its stealth debut in March 2017, Excelero has quadrupled its customer base for NVMesh™, a 100% software solution that allows shared NVMe at local performance in a hardware-agnostic platform – and dramatically expanded its partner ecosystem to include most major server, networking and traditional storage vendors.

“We believe Excelero’s inclusion in the Gartner Cool Vendor in Storage Technologies, 2018 report validates our mission to enable enterprises to build the software-defined data centers they need by addressing the missing link – elastic and highly efficient storage architectures,” said Lior Gal, CEO and co-founder of Excelero. “Excelero is honored to be recognized by such an esteemed industry leader for our storage technology solutions. We pride ourselves in helping customers to leverage NVMe over Fabrics for powerful competitive advantage.”
