Violin Memory, Inc., provider of memory-based storage systems, won the annual Storage Award in the Flash/SSD category for the Violin Memory 6000 Series Flash Memory Array. The award-winning solution, which uses flash technology for speed, ultra-low latency and reliability, was voted number one in its category by UK Storage Magazine readers, defeating industry veterans and new market entrants.

The Violin Memory 6000 Series can process one million IOPS, deliver spike-free, sub-microsecond low latency and handle up to 32TB of raw data, making it the ideal choice for organisations dealing with increasing levels of data and time-sensitive business critical applications. It is also perfectly suited for large-scale virtualisation projects.

"We are thrilled the storage industry has chosen the Violin Memory 6000 Series above all other flash and SSD products nominated for this award," said Steven Rose, managing director of Violin Memory EMEA. "It's a real honour to have our arrays recognised for the tangible benefits they offer, giving customers real-time data access, performance of memory storage at the cost of spinning disk, and a real solution to the challenge of Big Data."

"The phenomenal growth in the SSD/Flash market over the last couple of years is something we'd be foolish to ignore at the Storage Awards, and the recognition of businesses like Violin Memory reflects the increased emphasis among enterprise storage planners on solutions that exploit the best Flash technologies, whether hybrid or Flash-only," commented David Tyler, editor of Storage Magazine.
