Virtuozzo, the alternative cloud platform leader, today announced it was named Cloud Enabler of the Year during the 19th annual Storage Awards hosted by Storage Magazine. Filling a void in the cloud enablement market, Virtuozzo delivers a robust cloud platform for service providers that is easy to use and manage. The honor recognizes the company’s commitment to enabling these providers to rapidly launch an extensive portfolio of scalable cloud services that are viable, cost-effective alternatives to hyperscaler solutions.
The Storage Awards, also known as the Storries, recognize the finest products, companies, and people revolutionizing storage technology. Winners are chosen by Storage Magazine readers, making it one of the few programs driven by an independent selection committee comprised of users and IT decision makers. Virtuozzo was one of twelve nominees in the Cloud Enabler of the Year category and was a contender in five other categories—including Cloud Company of the Year for which it was named runner-up.
