Selling the best virtualization solutions and data center products can help IT solutions providers increase business. With so many options from so many vendors, however, it can be tough to know what exactly the best virtualization solutions and data center products are.
Our sister sites, SearchServerVirtualization.com and SearchDataCenter.com, have made that work a little easier with their 2008 Products of the Year awards.
For the best virtualization solutions, there were winners in five categories: virtualization platforms, data protection, systems and performance management, lab management workflow automation and virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI). There were three winners for the best data center products in the infrastructure, servers and systems management categories.
Independent judges selected the best virtualization solutions and data center products by rating them on six criteria: ease of integration into existing environments, functionality, innovation, manageability, performance and value.
