(, the innovation leader in unified block and file storage solutions over iSCSI, has been selected as a winner of the Tech Awards Circle award, taking silver in the midrange hardware category. Winners were selected by an independent panel of publication reviewers/journalists from nominations based on a broad range of achievements – from product and technology innovations to talented executive leadership and engineering innovators.

Tech Awards Circle celebrates the products, services, vendors and individuals making a difference in the industry today. The winners represent a broad range of achievements, from hardware to software to services in consumer/SOHO, SMB, midrange, and enterprise markets. Gold, silver and bronze awards were given out in each category.

“Despite overwhelmingly strong competition, RELDATA exhibited true industry excellence to be recognized among the top of the Tech Awards Circle,” said Kevin Anderson, awards program coordinator. “Our judges were pleased at the level of submissions from all the vendors entering this year’s competition, so to be named a winner of this prestigious award is a testament to the quality and innovation unrivaled in the high tech community.”

"Today’s organizations, especially mid-market companies with fewer resources than large enterprises, face the mounting need to store and secure critical data long-term for compliance requirements, as well as assure high availability and disaster recovery planning, all while maintaining a cost-effective, easily scalable storage environment. We have been successful in delivering a solution that meets these business requirements and maximizes the value of organizations’ existing storage infrastructure," said Kirill Malkin, CTO and co-founder, RELDATA. "The Silver recognition from the Tech Awards Circle underscores our commitment to improve our customers' IT environments and we thank the award judges for regarding RELDATA's unified storage platform as one of the year's best midrange hardware products."
