Access "Best data storage products 2013: Products of the Year"

For the eleventh year in a row, Storage magazine and present the Products of the Year awards. These awards recognize storage products that were either initially introduced in the last year or significantly enhanced over a prior version. And as we've seen in all previous years, our winners in the six judging categories represent not only a wide range of technologies, but an eclectic mix of well-established and start-up product vendors. Our Products of the Year competition is different from "readers' choice" or other top product contests. We focus specifically on the past year, so a veteran product with a storied and well-regarded heritage may come up short compared to a less well-known product if the more established product wasn't appreciably upgraded during that time. So, the pursuit of a gold, silver or bronze award is based largely on a "what have you done lately" perspective. We offer a single sentiment to the 16 Products of the Year winners profiled on the following pages: Congratulations! Access >>>
