Boston, a leading provider of high performance, mission-critical server and storage solutions, has been named “Hyper-Convergence Vendor of the Year” at the 15th annual Storage Awards (Storries).
The Storage Awards, held this year at the Tower Hotel, London nestled into the north bank of the River Thames next to Tower Bridge, welcomed in excess of 200 IT professionals from across the industry to celebrate innovation and excellence across the storage industry. These highly regarded awards, that are voted for by readers of Storage Magazine and industry professionals, deliver a collective seal of approval to the organisations who take away the much-coveted trophies at the end of the night.
Achieving Hyper-Convergence Vendor of the Year is particularly apt since it is almost a year since the Boston Flash-IO Talyn solution was launched which utilises flash and networking technologies and connects them in a hyper-converged configuration using an enhanced version of the NVMe-OF protocol, Excelero NVMesh®. With the combined solution every node is able to behave as an application server and as a storage target, ensuring its local flash storage is accessible to the other nodes in the cluster.
