This edition of the channel quadrant is all about big data and big iron.
The biggest vendor shift came from HP, as the tech giant moved up the channel commitment quadrant after a successful Global Partner Conference in Las Vegas.
Another big mover was Cisco Systems, which reported and excellent quarter and is bouncing back from a sluggish 2011.
NetApp Canada has solutions for both big data and big iron, and rests well inside the channel commitment quadrant.
And, for the first time, there are no vendors currently scaling back. We hope it’s a trend that lasts.
