Leading IT Research Firm Recognizes Stratoscale in Annual List Evaluating Innovative Vendors in Key Technology Areas

Stratoscale, the software platform for hyper-convergence, was recently named a Cool Vendor in Servers and Virtualization 1 by Gartner, the world’s leading information technology research and advisory company, in its annual list of innovative vendors. Stratoscale delivers a unique all software, rack-scale hyper converged operating system for data centers.

Each year, Gartner identifies new Cool Vendors in key technology areas and publishes a series of research reports evaluating these innovative vendors and their products and services. Gartner analysts Philip Dawson, Thomas J. Bittman, George J. Weiss and Andrew Butler penned the research report on Servers and Virtualization: “With the introduction of containers and "software defined" abstraction from hardware has come renewed interest in server and virtualization technology.” The Cool Vendors recognized in the report “illustrate for I&O leaders how to assess and expand server functionality beyond traditional OSs and hypervisors.”

“We are pleased to have been named a Cool Vendor by Gartner,” said Stratoscale co-founder and CEO Ariel Maislos. “With so much change occurring in data centers today, we are seeing first hand how our customers value our new OS; a practical, logical, simple to manage hyper converged solution that we built our company around. We believe this recognition by Gartner is another important validator that our software-based approach is one the market is hungry for.”
