Nice to be a Finalist

My company Ocarina Networks received word this week that Storage Magazine has named us a Storage Management Category finalist in the Storage Magazine Annual Products of the Year Awards.

This is yet another strong validation not only of our business proposition, but of our overall belief that dedupe for online storage–and capacity optimization in general–are becoming must-haves for a wide swath of the business community. This is more true than ever in today’s tough economy.

Our category, “Storage Management Software” is a wide field and the finalists represent everything from EMC’s virtual infrastructure support to Nirvanix’s CloudNAS to Symantec’s storage and virtual server management portal, and so on. The common thread, however, is a focus on getting more from less–whether it’s deduplication for primary, thin provisioning, virtualization, or storage in the cloud, this theme is apparent in just about every entrant.

Thanks to the people at TechTarget and we look forward to announcing that we’ve won the category when the results come out next month.
