StorageCraft Ships Affordable Storage Solution for Education Customers: Page 2 of 2

The new system uses the vendor’s scale-out OneBlox storage arrays to help K-12 school districts, colleges, and universities manage rapidly swelling data volumes without performing forklift upgrades or creating hard-to-manage data silos. By Rich Freeman

StorageCraft launched its first vertical industry solution, for law enforcement agencies, in March. The company plans to release more industry-focused systems in the future.

The OneBlox storage system was invented by Exablox Inc. StorageCraft announced an alliance pact with that company in October 2016, and bought it outright in January 2017.

The investment has been paying rich dividends since. StorageCraft has seen a 400 percent increase in distribution sales of OneBlox units on a year-over-year basis in the last 12 months. 45 percent of companies that purchase an initial OneBlox array end up buying more over time as well, suggesting that OneBlox solutions are an ongoing source of hardware revenue for StorageCraft and its partners alike.
