WALTHAM, Mass., April 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Sanbolic®, the market leader in distributed data management, today announced that Q1 2012 marked yet another record quarter for the company, with a 110% increase in North American sales over Q1 2011. Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) solution sales led the tremendous growth, with SQL Server and file serving solutions tying for second place.
State University of New York, Upstate Medical University (SUNY Upstate) depends on Sanbolic Melio to provide high availability for its Citrix PVS server, EMC storage based enterprise compute environment. "By decoupling the data management responsibility from any single storage system, Melio helped us to create a more scalable, flexible and higher performing shared data architecture at a dramatically lower cost than we had originally thought possible," said Christopher Loughlin, Windows and Citrix Administrator, SUNY Upstate.
"VDI deployments can impose a tremendous strain on storage infrastructures. Frequently in fact, VDI installs are derailed by unexpected storage cost, complexity and performance degradation," said Rich Brumpton, Director, National Virtualization Practice, MTM Technologies, a leading national provider of IT solutions and services including virtualization, unified communications and managed services. "We eliminate this challenge for our customers, such as Country Wide Insurance, by leveraging Sanbolic's Melio software to create flexible, scalable, highly available shared storage for Provisioning Services (PVS), a core component of XenDesktop that enables on-demand streaming of desktop images. By combining the unique capabilities of Melio with the ease of deploying and managing desktop images with PVS, our customers can start a VDI pilot quickly, easily and at a much lower cost, while simplifying data and storage management. It is also ideal for those that have begun a pilot and are looking for the most efficient and cost effective way to transition from pilot to production."
"While SQL Server and file serving continue to hold IT management's attention, we are hearing consistently from customers that reducing the cost and complexity across their VDI deployments has risen to the very top of their IT 'To Do' list," said Eva Helen, Co-Founder, President and COO, Sanbolic. "Sanbolic's Melio distributed data management software enables these customers to dramatically improve the ROI on their VDI deployments by reducing the cost and complexity associated with the most pivotal area of VDI – storage."
In addition to enviable customer traction which brought with it the 110% increase in sales, Q1 2012 also included the following notable Sanbolic achievements:
- In February 2012, Sanbolic was honored with one of the industry's most coveted awards, when its Melio v3.5 software brought home the Silver in the Storage System Software category in the prestigious SearchStorage.com and Storage magazine Products of the Year Award.
- In March 2012, Sanbolic announced the general availability of ShareCenter™, a new Melio Enterprise file serving module that enables customers to migrate file serving workloads off expensive and problematic platforms, such as Windows, and consolidate onto commodity hardware, as well as centralize provisioning, management and quality of service (QoS) capabilities, in order to dramatically lower capital and operational costs (CapEx and OpEx).
