VMware's Infrastructure 3 product also won top honors at the event, taking home the "Virtualization Product of the Year" award.
The award winners were selected by a top panel of European journalists, consultants and industry leaders specifically to recognize those products that have advanced and changed the way network managers work and have made their jobs easier. Each product was judged on technical specification, functionality, features, innovation, performance, configuration, resilience, ease-of-use, cost-effectiveness and market position.
SANsymphony 6.0 Enterprise Edition provides network managers with a comprehensive view of their SANs and elevates SAN management control and automation from the limiting, individual device level to the higher level, logical units within the SAN infrastructure.
George Teixeira, DataCore president and CEO, commented, "We are pleased to be recognized through this award for something that we work very hard to achieve: bringing true value and innovation to network managers through our storage virtualization solutions. Since its release in February, our SANsymphony 6.0 software has enabled users to greatly improve productivity and reduce costs, doubling effective disk utilization, by pooling disk space from multiple devices and automatically allocating just enough capacity, just in time, to needy applications."
Functionalities and features that impressed the judges with SANsymphony 6.0 innovation included:
— SAN domains (intelligent virtual SANs within the physical SAN); — 'Span the SAN' usability and productivity services; N+1 Grid scalability; — High level business continuity; — Multi path SAN failover across FC, iSCSI (or both); — Advanced automation and thin provisioning; — Time addressable CDP volumes; and — Powerful non-disruptive data migration services.
It's been an award-winning month for DataCore Software, which pioneered storage virtualization in the late 90's and thin provisioning in 2001. In mid June, DataCore received the "SAN Solution of the Year" at the UK's Storage Awards for the implementation of their entry-level, SANmelody solution at Moorfields Eye Hospital. http://www.datacore.com/pressroom/pr_070621.asp
