Seagate leads in innovation, performance, market, price, service and support
IT professionals have once again voted Seagate as the storage brand leader for enterprise hard disk drives.
IT Brand Pulse today announced the results of its 2015 IT brand leader surveys covering 12 product types, with voting conducted by IT pros from around the world. For the third straight year, Seagate won in the Enterprise HDD category, topping WD, HGST and Toshiba in voting.
IT pros ranked Seagate as the enterprise HDD leader in market, price, performance, service and support, and innovation.
New technologies, high-performance features, commitment to field reliability
“This acknowledgement validates our ability to deliver innovative new technologies and high-performance features, including enhanced caching, to the market,” said Mark Re, senior vice president and chief technology officer at Seagate. “Our efforts, along with our commitment to field reliability, have clearly resonated throughout the industry and we are honored to be leading the charge.”
Strength in the enterprise market has helped the company offset seasonal weakness in the PC space. Seagate shipped 9.1 million enterprise units in Q3FY15, up 18 percent from the same period a year ago.
Other IT Brand Pulse storage winners included EMC (which won in three product categories), NetApp (a winner in two categories), Brocade, Citrix, Dell, IBM, QLogic and Quantum.
