Technology Marketing Corporation (TMC) has named Unitrends Boomerang
™ the 2015 ‘Cloud Computing Product of the Year’. TMC, which has headquarters in Norwalk, Connecticut, United States, bills itself as “the world's leading business-to-business and integrated marketing media company”. Companies use TMC’s content-driven marketplaces to make the right purchasing decisions. The ‘Cloud Computing Product of the Year’ awards are managed by TMC’s ‘Cloud Computing’ magazine and recognize companies that have established ‘innovative, useful and beneficial’ cloud products and services over the previous year.
Unitrends Boomerang™ is a low-cost backup and disaster recovery virtual appliance that enables VMware Virtual Machines (VMs) to be replicated and moved to the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud. It facilitates the migration of on-premise systems to the cloud by remodeling replicated VMs to native Amazon Machine Images (AMIs). It also utilizes Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) and provides network optimization to reduce the cost of protecting VMs in the cloud - VMs can be moved between the data centers and the cloud using a centralized interface which allows administrators to “easily select and prioritize which VMs will be protected in the cloud”.
"This latest honor from TMC underscores the tangible value Boomerang customers across four continents are realizing each day – cost-effective hybrid disaster recovery, quick cloudbursting capabilities and easy migration of VMs to the cloud," explained the CTO of Unitrends, Dr. Mark Campbell. "Boomerang has been used by companies to perform thousands of VM replications to date. It's gratifying to see the virtual appliance earn industry recognition as an acclaimed cloud-based solution."
"Recognizing leaders in the advancement of cloud computing, TMC is proud to announce Unitrends Boomerang as a recipient of the Cloud Computing Product of the Year Award," added TMC’s CEO, Rich Tehrani. "Unitrends is being honored for its achievement in bringing innovation and excellence to the market, while leveraging the latest technology trends."Do you know of any other companies that have won awards?
