The VARBusiness Tech Innovators project is the means by which IT channel partners assess the technical innovation and development efforts of vendors. The 2007 VARBusiness Tech Innovator awards were judged by a panel of solution-provider executives and VARBusiness editors. The judges scored the products based on five main points -- usefulness, how new and/or improved the product is, price/performance, revenue potential and the overall "coolness" factor. The awards were presented at the XChange Tech Innovators conference held October 8th in Miami. The XChange conference brings together more than 130 of the channel's most unique, forward thinking integrators with the objective of helping them identify and consider alternative technologies and companies to do business with.

In addition to the award, FalconStor will be featured in the VARBusiness November issue, which will include profiles, features and in-depth explanations of the technologies and products.
