iomart Triumphs at Data Centre and Cloud Oscars
iomart Group plc (AIM:IOM), has picked up its third major industry award in the space of two weeks after winning the award for Private Cloud Services & Infrastructure at the 6th International Datacentre & Cloud Awards 2013, described as the Oscars of the industry.
The Group won the award for its Cloudsure platform which offers a fully resilient, secure, scalable and highly available private cloud solution enabling enterprises to scale their own computing, network and storage requirements in real time according to their needs.
Angus MacSween, CEO of iomart Group plc, said: “We’re delighted that the industry has recognised the hard work that we have put in over the past year to create not only the infrastructure but the network and connectivity to support the growing demand from business for private and hybrid cloud. Big data is driving the need for flexibility, reliability and ever greater expertise in all aspects of the cloud and we are delighted to be at the forefront of the industry response to that demand.”
Ashley Davis, Managing Director, GTIS, Corporate Centre, UBS Investment Bank and chairman of the Judges Panel said: “The quality of submissions across all categories attests to the value the industry now places on these Awards. They continue to reflect the international character of the datacentre and cloud industry and the demonstrable need for customer focus and innovation to remain in lead position.”
Last week the Group’s cloud services brand iomartcloud collected the award for Archiving and Compliance Product of the Year at the 2013 Storage Awards for its Email Archiving solution.
Better known as the Storries, the Storage Awards are voted for by the readers of Storage Magazine and reward the outstanding products, services and people delivering storage to businesses and organisations.
Bill Strain, director of iomartcloud, said: “Delivering an effective archiving and storage solution across an increasingly disparate IT environment in the era of big data is a massive challenge to system administrators. To ensure we deliver the products our customers need in the way they need to consume them, we are investing in the most secure and resilient storage across our wholly owned and managed network of eight secure data centres.”
iomart’s treble winning fortnight started with its prestigious Global Telecoms Business (GTB) Innovation Award win for ‘Fixed Network Infrastructure Innovation’ for its investment in a private fibre network.Subscribe to RSS Feed
