Boulder, CO (PRWEB) September 18, 2012
Evaluator Group Inc. announces today the release of their new Basic Subscription plan, complementing their popular Premium offering. The new plan provides an affordable yet concise way for IT professionals, resellers, and vendors to obtain the information they need to evaluate and compare data storage products and solutions.
Since 1997 Evaluator Group has been trusted by Global 1000 companies to provide insight on multi-million dollar storage purchases and strategies for meeting their information protection needs. The Evaluator Series Research (ESR) Basic Subscription leverages analyst knowledge at a low annual introductory price of $495 per subscriber and is designed to be an asset to the entire industry to enable informed, rapid decisions. The knowledge base pulls from an expansive foundation of in-depth analysis, helping both IT professionals and vendors make better decisions.
Currently, IT professionals have many means to obtain information on the latest products and technologies, but none provide consistency and independence. Between marketing language and biased opinions, gathering accurate information requires hours of digging though vendor and public websites. With an ESR Basic Subscription, IT professionals now have a trusted source that provides a non-biased, independent analysis and review of data storage products in a concise and consistent manner.
“Evaluator Group is committed to improving the knowledge of the data storage industry with accurate third party information,” said Camberley Bates, Managing Director Evaluator Group. “With data storage, a significant part of IT spending and everyday communication requires informed decisions. IT professionals need an accurate and current source to determine what is available in the market.”
The new annual Basic Subscription provides online access to Product Briefs, Workbooks, and Evaluation Guides. For the next 60 days, subscribers can try it for 7 days free of charge. Product Briefs are 5-10 page reports covering products from Dell, EMC, HDS, HP, IBM, NetApp and more. Evaluation Guides on major technologies such SAN, NAS, Archive, and Virtualization. The Workbooks provide a checklist of requirements to review for product selection. All research is updated as announcements occur to provide the latest information available.
The ESR Premium Subscription is designed for IT professionals looking for more personal assistance in developing a storage strategy, acquiring storage products and RFP reviews. With the Premium subscription, research customers can review products side-by-side using the Evaluator Group Comparison Matrices, access the deep dive Product Analysis, and also discuss options and requirements one-on-one with our experts. Included in the Premium Subscription is class attendance to our Advanced Storage Education classes and the use of VDI-IOmark™, a benchmarking tool for measuring storage performance for VDI implementations.
