Griffin Internet, the UK supplier of Managed Broadband has won the Storage Product of the Year award at a Channel event held last week.
Griffin has also just been listed as a finalist for the Comms Business Magazine Awards 2007 Product of the year being held on 7 June in London
The company beat Kingston Technology, VIP Computers, Peak Hardware and Bullguard to win this prestigious award proving that they are not just the ISP of choice for voice but also a contender in the data industry for storage, hosting and disaster recovery.
The main benefits of SANServe are that it ensures 100% data uptime, increased performance and reliability of data processing and storage, is easily scalable and has a unique roll-back in time option for rapid data recovery. SANServe offers the channel a robust, high margin and affordable managed hosting option that can be white labelled and sold by salespeople with little previous experience in the dedicated server market. Despite being a relatively new concept, SANServe has a proven track record and is backed up by glowing customer testimonials.
“We manage some of the busiest ecommerce sites in the world and the global nature of our clients means that the concept of a planned maintenance window is rapidly disappearing. Griffin’s Managed Hosting solution solved all of our problems and whilst it was initially a big decision to outsource a vital part of the business, our hosting costs have reduced and we actually feel we have more control now than when we ran our own server farm”.
Paul Meyers – Managing Director, Lynx Internet Solutions
“When we saw the quality of the opposition we were pleased just to be short-listed as finalists. SANServe is a very new but thankfully a simple concept that has been readily embraced by that part of the hosting market that needs 100% SLAs and instant data recovery. I commend the judges for the care they have taken in evaluating five very different technologies and I thank those Griffin customers that proactively supported Griffin with this award. Rapid innovation and robust product development are not always comfortable bedfellows and those individuals in Griffin responsible for conceiving, developing, marketing, selling and supporting SANServe should be very proud of themselves right now. We are absolutely thrilled to win this award.” John Dawson, Managing Director.
