The Awards, Equallogic Vs LeftHand

For what they are worth, awards are sometimes useful for judging products. This site lists quite a few of the awards that Equallogic has won.


  • 2008 Best iSCSI SAN - InfoWorld
  • 2007 SAN Product of the Year - TechWorld.com
  • 2007 Best iSCSI SAN - eWeek
  • 2007 Virtualization Product of the Year - Storage Awards
  • 2006 Best Midrange SAN Array - Storage Magazine
  • 2006 Best Private Company - Byte & Switch
  • 2006 Best MidMarket Storage Product - VARbusiness
  • 2006 SAN Product of the Year - Storage Awards
  • 2006 Technology of the Year - InfoWorld
  • 2006 Best iSCSI Array - Network Computing
  • 2005 Editors Choice - iSCSI SAN Product - Storage Pipeline Awards
  • 2005 iSCSI Array of the Year - Network Computing Magazine
Also of equal interest are these graphs from the Diogenes Labs-Storage magazine Quality Awards.




And here is a link to the 2008 magazine article.


An interesting pull out from the article is 'When asked to respond to the statement 'This product is easy to use', a remarkable 19 out of 22 rated it a perfect 8.0, yielding an average score of 7.64.

Unfortunately, LeftHand was not included in this survey. Hopefully next year they will be included (because of not enough respondents)

My searching did not bring up nearly as many LeftHand SAN awards (It seems Dell\Equallogic is better at playing that game)
