STORServer Provides Access To The DCIG 2014-15 Integrated Backup Appliance Buyer's Guide

STORServer invites you to download the full DCIG 2014-15 Integrated Backup Appliance Library Buyer's Guide.

The DCIG 2014-15 Integrated Backup Appliance Buyer’s Guide is designed to cut time and cost from the product research process. DCIG invested hundreds of hours designing a survey that captures the data most relevant to prospective backup appliance purchasers, analyzing the results and then reporting on its findings.

While compiling the Buyer’s Guide, DCIG spoke to various end-users to get a sense of how they would weight their needs in various areas. DCIG then evaluated each vendor’s capa­bilities by applying a weighting to these features based upon our conversations with these end-users and our experience.

The Buyer’s Guide will provide your customers a comprehensive list of integrated backup solutions and the features they offer in the form of detailed, standardized data sheets that can assist them in this important buying decision.

This Buyer’s Guide is the result of a multi-month effort that involved communicating with multiple providers and evaluating more than 80 features on 72 different integrated backup solu­tions. Each provider was given the opportunity to complete a survey with more than 85 questions that examined how its solution delivered on features associated with management, hard­ware, scalability and support.

In instances where vendors did not respond, DCIG completed the surveys on the vendor’s behalf and then sent the completed survey to the vendor for their review. In every case, every vendor had the opportunity to review and respond to the survey and the information regarding the product displayed on its data sheets included in this Buyer’s Guide.
