SearchServerVirtualization.com is now soliciting nominations for its Products of the Year awards. We invite you to nominate your favorite product or your company’s product by using the form at the entry page. Winning products will be featured in January 2008 on SearchServerVirtualization.com.
SearchServerVirtualization.com staff and other industry experts will judge the entries. Your product(s) qualify for submission if they have shipped (or have been significantly upgraded) between October 31, 2006 and before November 1, 2007.
If you are submitting more than one product, you must fill out a separate form for each product.
Note: Products entered for Best of VMworld awards are eligible for entry. This is an entirely separate award.
The deadline for all submissions is November 2, 2007.
Products are limited to one category. They must fit into one of the following categories for consideration:
-Data protection (Including backup, replication, HA and FT products)
-Systems management: Monitoring and reporting
-Hardware for virtualization (Including, but not limited to: Servers, storage, I/O components and client devices).
-Virtualization platforms (e.g. VMware ESX, VI3, Microsoft Virtual Server, Virtuozzo, XenEnterprise, etc.)
We’ve identified the following criteria as being most important, and will judge accordingly:
* New or upgraded features and capabilities
* If the product is an upgrade, how the upgrade has affected sales and user adoption, and
* User reviews.
