Amplidata Win Best Cloud Storage Solution at the Cloud Computing World Series Awards

Lochristi, Belgium, July 10, 2010 --(PR.com)-- Amplidata have been named the "Best Cloud Storage Solution" at the Cloud Computing World Series Awards 2010

Amplidata, an innovator in next-generation distributed storage technology for public and private clouds, announced today that the Cloud Computing World Forum has awarded them the 2010 award for Best Cloud Storage Solution. The prestigious Cloud Computing World Series Award was presented to Amplidata at the Cloud Computing World Forum 2010 award event held at the Olympia Conference Centre in London, England.

“Cloud Computing World Forum recognizes our unique approach to replace RAID as the main technology for high-available and power-efficient storage systems” said Wim De Wispelaere, CEO Amplidata. “Disks nowadays have capacities of a TerraByte or more and on-line data is required to be always available. Building large scale storage systems by applying RAID redundancy technology on high capacity disks leads to long rebuild times and unacceptable exposure to data loss. Amplidata foresaw this issue years ago and developed a unique set of technologies that enables customers to deliver extremely high availability and scalability at a fraction of the cost.”

The Cloud Computing World Series Awards annually recognize the best Cloud products and services. Winners are selected by an independent panel of judges including press editors, industry analysts, management consultants, and practicing IT architects and leaders. This year, the judges had to select from over 40 nominations in each category.

Amplidata was awarded "Best Cloud Storage Solution" because of the unique combination of three innovative technologies:

The BitSpread technology encodes data with higher availability and lower overhead.

BitLog tracks all block data writes to offer snapshots, clones, rollback and history on all stored data.

BitDynamics manages storage scalability and availability, and performs out-of-band storage verification and optimization.

This combination makes Amplidata the only storage solution that is far more reliable and cost-efficient than any RAID-based system on the market today.

“The award for Best Cloud Storage Solution was a fiercely competed category so congratulations to Amplidata for winning the award in its 1st year,” said Mark Johnstone, Show Director for the Cloud Computing World Series. “The award confirms Amplidata's vision and rewards their years of intense engineering.”
