Chosen by a panel of judges consisting of the TechTarget Storage Media Group editors, analysts, consultants and other industry experts, AvailabilityGuard/SAN was singled out for its ability to provide visibility into the entire storage area network (SAN) fabric, including storage, servers, operating systems, file systems and host bus adaptors, among other things, in order to identify gaps in data protection and data loss risks. AvailabilityGuard/SAN was also recognized for its ability to provide automatic daily verification of the SAN fabric, impact testing for changes to the environment and validation that configuration changes won’t result in data loss.
The accompanying editorial stated, “As we’ve seen year after year, our list of finalists reads like a mix of who’s who in storage and a roster of upcoming insurgents. But it’s just that kind of potent blending of old and new that ensures a wide variety of storage products appropriate for nearly any environment will always be available and evolving.” It concluded by saying, “So, take a look at the data storage systems that have already demonstrated their innovation and value, and are poised to help storage keep pace with today’s rapidly changing data center environments.”
