StarWind Software Inc. is nominated for Storage Product of the Year for Starwind Enterprise HA iSCSI SAN for 2011 Network Computing Awards

Burlington, Mass. – February 10, 2011 - StarWind Software Inc., a global leader and pioneer in iSCSI storage, today announced it has been selected as a finalist for the Network Computing Awards in the Storage Product of the Year award category.

The Network Computing Award recognizes StarWind Software Inc. for the quality and value of its innovative iSCSI SAN storage solutions that help customers manage primary data and backups for physical or virtual server and desktop environments. StarWind helps solve customers’ toughest data protection challenges with one of the most powerful SAN storage solutions available. StarWind uses an open storage architecture which eliminates “vendor lock in”, reducing SAN hardware costs and protecting investments by allowing SAN performance to scale more than traditional shelf based SANs. Overall ease of use in StarWind allows IT departments to lower labor costs for storage and backup administrators so IT can focus on growing and supporting more profitable business initiatives.

“We are honored to be selected as a finalist for this prestigious award. It’s fascinating to see the recognition StarWind is gaining as our team constantly works hard to create and deliver innovative iSCSI SAN solutions,” said Artem Berman, CEO of StarWind Software. “Our latest release includes seamless and fast high availability storage node failover which eliminates a single point of failure at the SAN controller level.”

“We owe this nomination to our growing network of Channel Partners and our end user customers. Their feedback over the past eight years has driven us to strive for excellence both in terms of hardening and maturing our software, and to ensure our sales model is fair and competitive.” added Roman Shovkun, Chief Sales Officer of StarWind Software.
