iomart Completes Cloud Services and Storage treble
iomart Group plc (AIM:IOM), has picked up its third major industry honour in two weeks after winning the award for Private Cloud Services & Infrastructure at the 6th International Datacentre & Cloud Awards 2013.
iomart 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.”
The International Datacentre & Cloud Awards are described as the Oscars of the industry and organised by international consulting firm BroadGroup.
Philip Low, Managing Director of BroadGroup, added: “The Judges’ view is that iomart have developed their own orchestration layer that offers real-time management across resources, and their submission was well received as a very competent hybrid cloud offering.”
Ashley Davis, Managing Director, GTIS, Corporate Centre, UBS Investment Bank and chairman of the Judges 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.”
iomart’s treble-winning fortnight saw the Group’s cloud services brand iomartcloud win Archiving and Compliance Product of the Year at the Storage Awards for its email archiving solution and Fixed Network Infrastructure Innovation for its private fibre network at the Global Telecoms Business (GTB) Innovation.
