SUSE® won twice at the recent Storage Awards 2015, including the "Editor's Choice" award for SUSE Enterprise Storage and the "Cloud Enabler of the Year" award. Presented by Storage Magazine, the Storage Awards are chosen by readers and magazine staff.

"When choosing the winner, I had to figure a number of factors, including all the usual things that make great products—reliability, efficiency, ROI, security and, of course, compatibility," said David Tyler, editor of Storage Magazine. "I was pleased to see SUSE were able to understand the myriad of challenges that face the IT/storage manager and provide the ideal product and a competitive price to ensure their solution exceeded customer requirements."

Other nominees for Cloud Enabler of the Year included Barracuda Networks, Code42, EMC, EVault, iomart, Microsoft Azure, Proact, Six Degrees Group, Sphere 3D, Veritas and VMware. Others up for the Editor's Choice award included previous winners Arcserve and DataCore.

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.
