DataCore’s Parallel IO Software Wins Data Centre Software Defined Storage Product of the Year at Data Centre Solutions Awards

READING, UK: – May 19, 2016:DataCore, the leader in Parallel-Powered Software, Application-Adaptive Data Infrastructure and Hyper-converged Virtual SAN solutions, have announced that their entry for Parallel IO has succeeded as being crowned the Software Defined Product of the Year at a London based ceremony last Thursday evening.

“It’s great to receive this DCS Product of the Year Award for Parallel IO as it is direct recognition of the value the solution can bring into the data centre, delivering the much-needed processing power for intensive compute and transaction environments in a fraction of the latency and cost of any other solution out there.” notes Brett Denly, Regional Director, DataCore Software UK.

The DataCore entry was based upon delivery of a detailed entry that highlighted the benefits that using Parallel IO software contained within DataCore’s solutions brings into the data centre as it allows the server infrastructure to become storage infrastructure.  When asked to define the key distinguishing features, judges were impressed with Parallel IO’s record breaking hyper converged capability; it’s ability to handle compute – with unparalleled performance and processing of I/O intensive workloads generated by mission critical enterprise applications. Judges were also impressed that the software has been rigorously audited and tested by the heavily peer-reviewed, Storage Performance Council.

The DCS Awards 2016 feature 26 categories, recognising products, solutions, testimonials and organisations. Once the judges have defined the shortlist, the selection of winners is based solely on the public votes received.
