Anyone looking to create a shortlist of storage products to evaluate this year should start with our 2006 Products...
of the Year winners for a guide to some of the best new storage technologies on the market.
Backup and disaster recovery is a tough area in which to innovate, but every year new companies emerge to challenge the incumbents. Safeguarding remote data is one area in which smaller companies are leading the way and Signiant Inc.'s Mobilize for Remote Data Protection product took the gold award in this category.
We only award prizes to the top three products in each category, but this year's finalists are well worth checking out too.
If you are using any of these products and your experience differs to the assessment of our judges, please write to us and let us know.
