PROVIDENCE – The IO Offload Engine from GreenBytes Inc., a developer of virtual desktop and cloud-scale IO-offload and data deduplication solutions, has been named a finalist in the 2013 Datacenter Solutions Awards.
The DCS award finalists, which are selected by prominent editors and analysts from the United Kingstom, recognized GreenBytes’ IO system in the Datacenter Appliance of the Year category.
Voting for the award winners in each category is open to the public, which is “encouraged to choose the most innovative solutions that deliver the greatest impact on business,” according to the company.
“Desktop virtualization promises great savings and flexibility; however, many implementations stall or fail outright because of massive storage requirements that end up costing much more than anticipated, and desktop performance degradation that impedes productivity,” GreenBytes Chairman and CEO Stephen O’Donnell said in a statement.
“IT organizations desperately need an easy, effective way to decrease the load on existing storage systems and deliver a great experience for users – and that is exactly what the GreenBytes IO Offload Engine makes possible,” said O’Donnell. “We’re pleased that, like the many businesses that have adopted the IO Offload Engine, the DCS judges recognize the value of our unique approach.”
DCS Award-winners will be announced at a gala event at the Millennium Gloucester Hotel in London on May 23. Voting is open to the public through May 9.
