DataCore Software's SANmelody Wins 2009 Network Computing Award for "Software Product of the Year"
DataCore Software, the leading provider of storage virtualization, business continuity and disaster recovery software solutions, today announced that it has scooped the Software Product of the Year Award at Network Computing Magazine’s prestigious 2009 Annual Awards dinner held last week at the Tower Hotel in London, beating stiff category competition from finalists EMC, CA and Attempo, among others.  

Keith Joseph, Regional Manager, Northern Europe, DataCore Software, commented, “It’s great to receive this award as it demonstrates that network managers are moving away from the traditional hardware-based solutions that disk manufacturers advocate in favor of a software storage solution that operates on anything and reutilizes the storage and disk already in the network to provide greater utilization, manageability, productivity, uptime and performance.”  

The Awards, voted on by thousands of Network Computing Magazine’s readership, signifies the readers’ appreciation of SANmelody™ and how it easily and cost-effectively converts physical Intel/AMD servers – as well as virtual machines (VMs) – into fully capable, virtual storage servers that are able to optimize, protect and manage storage over existing networks to fulfill the needs of application servers.

Other features that enticed winners’ votes include SANmelody’s thin provisioning for disk space capacity automation, point-in-time snapshots for fast disk-based backups, and powerful data protection services that provide auto failover across redundant disk servers and long distance, asynchronous replication for disaster recovery over IP WANs.  

The Network Computing Awards were established in 2004 to recognize best-in-breed, easy-to-use solutions that make the working lives of network managers easier and more effective.
