Just this morning, Storage Magazine and SearchStorage.com announced the finalists for their 2014 Products of the Year competition, and we are honored to have have made the cut for top data storage management tools! In the competition’s 12th year, 55 finalists have been named across six categories, of which only 18 products will be picked to receive Gold, Silver and Bronze awards. Products eligible for this category include storage resource management (SRM) and SAN management software, performance monitoring, configuration management, provisioning and data reduction tools.
Storage Magazine notes: “The third-place winner of 2013 is back with an upgraded product in 2014 for monitoring and analyzing virtual environments. Operations Manager, along with its Storage Control Module feature, uses storage metrics, workload requirements and user-defined constraints to make data placement recommendations. Workload placement and resource configuration can also be automated.”
VMTurbo is the only solution that automates decision-making, delivering actionable recommendations—and then takes those actions for you —to improve efficiency and solve virtual and storage environment performance issues. It allows IT teams to break free from the endless cycle of alerting and data analysis, putting their time and effort towards more important matters, benefiting their businesses and their own sanity.
There’s no doubt the competition is stiff, we’re up against eight other very interesting products, many of which are newcomers to the market. What’s most exciting about this award is that we are once again being recognized for our expertise in virtualization and storage control. Just last year, VMTurbo Operations Manager received the Bronze award from Storage Magazine in the same category. So fingers crossed that we are repeat offenders, or even better, go for gold in the category.
