  • Virginia Beach-Norfolk-Newport News, VA-NC (1888PressRelease) January 07, 2012 - RESTON, VA - Virtualization Review today announced that AppAssure backup, replication and recovery software, the #1 Backup for VM, physical & Cloud environments, won the Readers Choice Award as the Business Continuity ISV Winner. Virtualization Review is the first and only print publication solely devoted to IT virtualization. The 2012 awards are chosen by the readers of Virtualization Review and presented to vendors in 14 categories ranging from Server Virtualization to Virtualization Security.

    AppAssure is a long-time backup industry innovator of data protection products that support multi-hypervisor environments including VMware® vSphere®, Microsoft® Hyper-V™ and Citrix® XenServer™. Customers and partners are thrilled that AppAssure won the 2012 Virtualization Review award. Bryan Badger, a Senior Systems Engineer at Integral Networks, an AppAssure partner, said, "We use AppAssure with VMware vSphere and Citrix XenServer at our data center, and we use it with Microsoft Hyper-V at our client sites. AppAssure holds up day after day no matter what we throw at it." According to Herb Thornton, Network Administrator at Brundage Bone, an AppAssure customer, "We had problems with starting some of our virtual servers at a remote location, but AppAssure recovered VMs within 20 minutes." Nick Bock, co-founder of Five Nines, an AppAssure partner, added, "One of our clients had virtual servers running on VMware which had crashed. With AppAssure, instead of a couple of days of disaster recovery, the client never lost a business minute."

    Virtualization Review readers voted on more than 250 products and responses were collected during a one-week period. A team of editors reviewed the results to ensure that they legitimately came from readers. The winners are highlighted in the December 2011/January 2012 issue.

    "The Annual Readers Choice Awards again provides a close-up opportunity to assess the dynamic vendor innovations taking place across the virtualization and cloud industry," said 1105 Enterprise Computing Group Vice President, Publishing, Matt Morollo. "This effort is managed with the utmost integrity to provide the ecosystem of IT virtualization adopters with a detailed look at best-of-breed technologies. Additionally, from the platform perspective of VMware, Citrix and Microsoft, the results also convey strong adoption trends, in addition to providing an extensive menu of features these vendors have developed. Finally, Virtualization Review is the leading vendor ecosystem advocate, and the Readers Choice Awards and associated Buyer's Guide provide a great resource for IT organizations working to optimize their virtual environments with advanced, innovative solutions."

    "There is so much happening in the world of virtualization and cloud computing, that it is all I can do each day to sort through the never-ending deluge of new product and company announcements that stack up in my e-mail box," said Bruce Hoard, editor in chief of Virtualization Review. "That's fine, though, because it's my job. It is not, however, the job of readers, who have precious little time to stay on top of the industry while they toil away in the trenches and management offices. In this high-speed environment, the annual Virtualization Review Readers Choice Awards and Ultimate Buyer's Guide is a welcome reprise from the usual, frantic pace, and we design it to offer the biggest bang for our audience's reading buck. What it all adds up to is a unique opportunity to see which products our readers' prefer, and then read about how they fit into the 14 product categories we provide. This year, we've included more products and companies than ever before."

    "We are honored that Virtualization Review and its community of readers awarded AppAssure backup as the ISV Winner in the Virtualization Business Continuity category," said Najaf Husain, AppAssure's President and CEO. "This award is a testament to our focus on the needs of our customers and partners and our commitment to deliver the best backup technologies for VMware, Hyper-V and XenServer users."
