Survey Reveals Top 5 "Front Burner" Projects among Clients

Condor Storage’s expertise is recommending solution suggestions for all of these five identified issues. We have carefully aligned with vendors that excel in each of these areas. There is always a built in layer of pricing for the most enterprise rich solution, so how does a client determine the value vs. feature formula that is the best cost, with least amount of sacrifice on features, for his/her exact project requirements? That is what a solution provider spends their time doing, we are professional match makers. 50% of our time is spent keeping a pulse on industry trends, as well as health checks among our client and colleague installations, vendor strengths and weaknesses,  in depth vendor reviews on new products, analyst viewpoints, and emergent and reoccuring themes of our clients “pain points”. Woe to today’s integrator who does not have a myriad of solutions at the ready for optimizing online data storage. It’s becoming a world of online, all the time, instant restore and failover and multiple tiers off primary arrays for cost savings under tremendous growth patterns.  Please visit our “Contact Us” page for no cost, pre-sales consultation.

The Whole Enchilada

May 4, 2010 Leave a reply

I’m seeing alot of technical call outs for storage solutions encompassing CIFS and NFS, SAN provisioning and replication with snapshots. Condor offers many vendor solutions that allow for above the norm design in features. We have acceleration appliances for highest IOPS , which can equal a 10 node NAS cluster in performance at an entry level cost of $35K. We have enterprise arrays, starting at under $10K for 14TB of full featured SAN with 24/7 support inclusive. If you call out your technical specs to me, we shall work with vendor engineers to architect an impressive match, feature by desired feature , with terrific price points. My promise, I shall  spare no effort on your behalf in our research phase, if you provide adequate details on what you are seeking.  -JMW

NAS Requests Pour In

December 1, 2007 Leave a reply

We’ve been bombarded with NAS price requests lately. Please note for least cost that all of our open storage vaults can be installed as DAS, NAS or SAN with the proper add-ons, as they simply appear as a drive letter to any OS, while running raid underneath the covers. For a turnkey single vendor solution, we are pleased to have two partner solutions. Both are green powered and we can add ILM, Backup and CAS Single Instance Store to the solution plus iSCSI is now available. I have talked to clients whom wish to have three separate tiers of NAS, spreading out costs among vendors.  

So what is your criteria for selecting a NAS solution? …I’ll share with you how Land Rover sold me a car and I am tough to sell to: their competitors had lots of features I asked for but they were all upgrades and add-ons to base sticker price. The LR sales guy kept stating “that’s included, it’s standard” on every question I asked. This made it very simple for me to decide, as when all the good stuff comes standard, that impresses me.  We deliver best value to our clients by also offering more features that come standard, and we’ll even let you test drive our hardware for 30 days.
