OTTAWA, Ontario -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Embotics, a leading provider of Cloud Management Software, today announced that it won a Best of VMworld 2013 Gold Award in the Public/Hybrid Cloud Computing Technologies Category for its flagship software, vCommander™ 5.0.
The official media partner for the VMworld Awards, TechTarget’s SearchServerVirtualization.com, announced the winners at the VMworld 2013 Conference in San Francisco held August 25 to 29. The Best of VMworld Awards recognizes the most innovative and high-performing products in the server virtualization, cloud computing and end-user computing markets.
TechTarget’s SearchServerVirtualization.com staff appointed a team of experts and editors who selected winning products from more than 160 entries. The team judged the products according to their innovation, value, performance, reliability and ease of use. The result: the panel of expert judges said, “Embotics can manage any cloud. Its ability to show the cost of running specific workloads helps users with chargeback and showback.”
"We are thrilled to have been recognized by TechTarget for a product that we believe can solve significant cloud management issues in a practical, easy and low cost way,” said Michael Torto, CEO of Embotics.
Those in attendance at VMworld were considerably impressed with Embotics’ cloud management software—specifically, the software’s ability to provide more accurate data regarding the consumption of resources within data centers, including rightsizing, SLA and performance, thus delivering in-depth analyses and reporting capabilities relating to performance, cost and governance.
This functionality paired with cross-hypervisor and cross-cloud abilities enables the consumption of Amazon EC2, VMware and Microsoft Hyper-V, transforming vCommander™ 5.0 to the now preferred option amongst vendors.
The validation of vCommander™ software as well as the focus on channel partners is aiding in the transformation to a Cloud Service Broker methodology—focusing on both the needs of the end consumer and the reseller. Channel partners are rapidly evolving their respective business models to support hybrid cloud computing—an agnostic, simple-to-use platform critical to market acceleration.
“The award represents the exact sentiment of the channel,” commented Dave Linzy, CEO of M7 Global Partners. “Embotics’ focus on creating superior technology coupled with its channel focus is a tremendous move forward in our industry.
