This latest version of Storage Radio is dedicated to our Products of the Year awards program. The best data storage products on the market are nominated, judged and chosen by a group of SearchStorage.com and Storage magazine editors, analysts, consultants and authors who research and test products across six categories: backup software, backup hardware, networking equipment, storage management tools, storage systems and storage systems software. Senior news director Dave Raffo and senior site editor Andrew Burton talk about the competitors in each division and explore trends such as the paradigm shift to flash technology, which revealed itself in the category of storage systems, and how the winner in the backup software category impressed the judges with its approach to hypervisor-based replication.
From the winning features in Windows Server 2012 to the latest Virtual Data Pipeline technology offered by Actifio, Storage Radio offers an overview of the hottest data storage products and technologies in the market today.
