Storage Products of the Year

Editors of SearchStorage.com and Storage magazine

Over the past year we've probably had more product pitches than you've had hot dinners. Most of them are the same thing over and over, but once in a while we learn about a real gem. As in past years, our 2004 Storage Products of the Year awards vividly reflect the innovation in our industry. And this year's awards prove that larger, older and more established companies don't have a monopoly on innovation.

Vendors and users alike are grappling with how to spread the benefits of storage networking beyond today's implementations. That means tackling WAN distribution problems, enabling greater consolidation, meeting lower cost points, simplifying complex environments, and improving manageability, data protection and availability. That's a long wish list, but this year's winners largely meet many of those goals.

As always, entrants are judged on six criteria:
  • Innovation
  • Performance
  • Ease of integration into existing environments
  • Manageability
  • Functionality
  • Value
