A10 Networks has won two Best of TechEd 2013 awards – one in the Hardware category with its A10 Thunder appliances, and one for the overall Attendees’ Pick category. A10 Thunder appliances are Application Delivery Controllers (ADCs) that provide Unified Application Service Gateway functionality by consolidating premium solution modules for intelligent Cloud services in the most efficient form factors.
The Best of TechEd awards, co-sponsored by Microsoft and Windows IT Pro, recognize Microsoft partners that offer innovative products and services for the industry. Winners were announced at the Microsoft TechEd North America 2013 conference in New Orleans, Louisiana.
“Our judging panel considered an impressive field of more than 250 submissions down to 33 finalists in 10 categories” said Jason Bovberg. “On the show floor, the team interviewed the finalists and evaluated the products to determine a final list of winners. As always, the three criteria for the judging process were strategic importance, competitive advantage, and value to customers. Show attendees also cast their votes to determine the winner of the prestigious Attendees’ Pick Award,” said Bovberg. “Our winners—and finalists!—represent some of the most innovative solutions on the market, from the big, established players to the new kids on the block.”
Judges said, “The A10 Thunder appliances are exquisitely designed hardware and software Application Delivery Controllers. This series won the category thanks to the bevy of innovations inside the hardware and software that make cloud applications faster, more flexible, and more secure with intelligent services convergence. The A10 Thunder platform’s compact size, streamlined performance, and green efficiency are unprecedented.”
“We are honoured to receive two prestigious awards at the Microsoft TechEd event,” said Lee Chen, Founder and CEO for A10 Networks. “Our new Thunder Series are designed with state-of-the-art hardware and software to deliver advanced networking and security solutions.”
