SUSE OpenStack Cloud was named "Cloud Enabler of the Year" and SUSE Enterprise Storage earned "Availability Platform of the Year" for 2016 at the Storage Awards gala in London recently. With winners chosen by Storage Magazine readers, this is the second consecutive year SUSE® has won awards for both cloud and storage solutions.

"Once again the readers of Storage Magazine voted in big numbers for SUSE," said Dave Tyler, editor of Storage Magazine. "Two wins and three runner-up finishes show readers' esteem for SUSE. For the second year running, SUSE has proven they merit this distinction by providing award-winning, quality products in both the storage and cloud arenas. SUSE's enterprise storage offerings are proving popular precisely because they exploit the best aspects of Ceph, which is rapidly establishing itself as the go-to storage solution for OpenStack deployments."

SUSE Enterprise Storage, a self-managing, self-healing, distributed software-defined storage solution, is the first and only Ceph-based solution with heterogeneous operating system support, giving customers highly scalable, resilient and low-cost storage that can seamlessly adapt to today's challenging data demands.
