Silicon Mechanics recognized by Inc Magazine

Many companies are turning to cloud storage deployments that utilize a mixture of hardware solutions, including both HDD and SSD technology.l

As more businesses adopt an increasingly diverse array of solutions, more service providers are using other points of value to distinguish themselves in the market. One of the ways storage companies can bring more value to their offerings is by focusing on customer experience. Inc Magazine recently announced its 500|5000, which recognizes the industry’s fastest growing private companies.

According to Eric Schurenberg, editor at Inc Magazine, the 500|5000 list highlights businesses that are most capable of jumpstarting innovation and providing jobs. Schurenberg believes that growth companies, more so than large enterprises, are the organizations that drive economic opportunity.

Hardware manufacturer Silicon Mechanics made the list and was commended for its efforts in collaborating with customers and developing best-fit cloud storage strategies. In addition, the company provides robust warranty support. The companies on the magazine’s list have maintained a median growth rate of 97 percent despite lackluster economic conditions.

“This award is a direct result of our success in creating an unrivaled overall customer experience,” said Eva Cherry, president and CEO of Silicon Mechanics. “Our stellar growth stems directly from our collaboration with customers, superior warranty offerings, and above all, the participation of a dedicated team of sales and service engineers.”

In addition to providing high-performing storage hardware, Silicon Mechanics offers virtualization solutions and consulting services to help with deployment. As the company’s website points out, virtualized server configurations can vary widely depending on the combination of hardware used and individual business needs. Despite these concerns, virtualization offers several key benefits for organizations that implement it effectively, including enhance disaster recovery, hardware optimization and lower capital expenses.
