The editorial staff at Angel Business Communications validated entries in the competition’s 31 categories to ensure each met the required criteria before forwarding a shortlist of finalists for public voting throughout October. Winners were announced at a gala evening event in London.
The Storage Company of the Year category was open to any company supplying a broad range of storage products and services in the EMEA market. Tegile was voted for by end users as being the top storage company of the year over eight other finalists, including Imation, Nexenta, Pure Storage, Quantum and Violin Memory.
‘Our company’s goal is to help customers accelerate their businesses by changing the performance and economics of their mission critical storage,’ said Paul Silver, vice president, EMEA, Tegile. ‘An award like this one, where end users ultimately decide the winner, is especially gratifying because it is a validation that we not only are achieving that mission but are doing it better than anyone else. Everyone here at Tegile is extremely appreciative to those who voted for us in this year’s SVC Awards, and are thrilled to have been named the Storage Company of the Year.’
