SANTA MONICA, Calif. – November 28, 2018 – Silicon-beach startup in SaaS solutions Aparavi today announced it has been included in the list of Cool Vendors in Storage Technologies, a 2018 report by Gartner, Inc.

According to Gartner, “planning and supporting cloud initiatives remain daunting, complex, and confusing tasks for many storage teams…Infrastructure and operations leaders focused on building and sustaining dependable infrastructure should use data classification and archiving tools that span hybrid cloud infrastructures to create data retention policies that bound legal discovery exposures, improve staff productivity and limit cloud storage costs.”

“Organizations are flooded with unstructured data and are struggling to realize their cloud initiatives. This creates a need for data classification and better archiving tools to ensure intelligent long-term retention,” said Adrian Knapp, CEO, Aparavi. “We see this as a major trend in the industry and believe that this recognition marks Aparavi’s ability to address it.”
