Wakefield, MA (PressExposure) March 25, 2013 -- StarWind Software Inc., an innovative provider of storage virtualization software, announced today that the company was named as a finalist in the Green IT Awards in "Virtualisation Product of the Year" category. In their fourth year, the Green IT Awards showcase and reward technology solutions, companies and organisations that have made a significant contribution to improving the IT industry's environmental performance over the previous 12 months.
StarWind was nominated for its highly available and fault-tolerant shared storage for virtualization environments, StarWind iSCSI SAN & NAS, which has taken its deserved place among the leading virtualization products for its innovative approach, advanced technologies and, of course, for its positive impact on the environment.
Running on the existing hardware, StarWind software extends the life of users' infrastructure and eliminates the typical three to five years of lead-in planning time for hardware purchases. This is equivalent to removing eight tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) from the environment, or to taking three cars off the road every year. The StarWind solution drastically reduces power consumption and helps to eliminate waste from unused hardware.
"We are extremely pleased to be a finalist in the Green IT Awards, and to be recognised for our efforts in reducing the impact that IT has on the environment," said Artem Berman, Chief Executive Officer of StarWind Software. "We want to thank all those people who organize and support such prestigious industry awards that help raise the general public awareness of the need to live greener."
The winners of the Green IT Awards will be announced on May 9, 2013 at the Grand Connaught Rooms in London.
