SUSE Enterprise Storage was named 2015 overall "Product of the Year" at the ninth Network Computing Awards held in London recently. SUSE Enterprise Storage, a self-managing, self-healing, distributed software-based storage solution for enterprise customers, also earned "Storage Product of the Year" designation from Network Computing magazine readers as the publication honored outstanding products, services and people.

"To us SUSE has always been at the forefront of innovation, and their product offerings have always stood head and shoulders above the rest," said Ray Smyth, editor of Network Computing. "Their two wins highlight how good they are at innovating and delivering premium enterprise products and solutions at affordable prices. This was not lost on the readers of Network Computing who voted for SUSE in their droves."

SUSE Enterprise Storage is powered by Ceph, the most popular open source distributed storage technology in the marketplace. It enables organizations to build cost-efficient and highly scalable storage using commodity off-the-shelf servers and disk drives, and it is well suited for object, archival and bulk storage with features including cache tiering, thin provisioning, copy-on-write cloning and erasure coding.
