To Understand What Makes Data-Aware Technology So Cool, Ask Gartner

How cool is DataGravity? According to Gartner Cool Vendors research, very. This report examining the landscape of storage options – including our own data-aware technology – provides valuable insights into how companies are facing the challenge of not only storing, but also analyzing and securing their data. The recent list names DataGravity as a force in the industry: “DataGravity provides a primary storage platform that accentuates data awareness with built-in data protection, search and visualization capabilities.”

Why did Gartner choose us as one of the “cool kids?” According to the report:

  •  “The Discovery Series systems track and audit all interactions, identify sensitive data, and retain this information in a metadata repository.” End users sometimes save sensitive data to the wrong place or even use data for malicious purposes. User access auditing is just one of our features that is more than cool – it’s essential for data-driven businesses.
  • “A clean UI provides a simple view to search and filter through data […] data can be easily searched for sensitive information, including personally identifiable information (PII) stored in a full content index as part of an overall information governance and compliance strategy.” Understanding your stored data allows you to decrease liability, as well as surface business insights, and visualization makes those actions easier for end users.
  • “The secondary replicated copy also acts as a backup for data protection utilizing DiscoveryPoints that are similar to a snapshot while also allowing granular recovery.” Misplaced files and accidental deletions plague company interactions. Having a stored copy that is simple to retrieve saves both time and resources.

Gartner’s report says, “Storage administrators, storage and IT architects, IT management, chief data officers, and information and governance leaders who seek a primary storage platform that accentuates data awareness with built-in data governance, search and visualization capabilities should consider DataGravity.”
