Another extraordinary night was had by all at this year’s Storage Awards - see below for the full list of winners and runners-up

The paracetamol packets are in the bin, the tuxedo dusted off and packed away ready for the next time, and the Storage magazine Twitter feed is only now beginning to recover from its most busy 24 hours or so of the entire year.

I refer of course to the Storage Awards 2019 - if you weren’t at the ceremony in June (and if not, why not?) then you missed possibly our biggest and best night ever - the next several pages include a full breakdown of all the winners and runners-up.

Some of the biggest winners included IBM who walked away on the night with three awards, as well as HPE, Park Place Technologies, Infortrend and Pure Storage who all managed two. On the channel side Epaton won Specialist Storage Reseller for the fourth year in a row, while CMS Distribution were crowned Distributor of the year.

John Greenwood won the Channel Excellence award and Seagate were awarded the Channel Partner Programme of the Year trophy. Storage Product of the Year went to Infortrend for GSc and VEEAM were voted Storage Company of the Year for the second year running - and they now join IBM as one of only two companies to retain that title.

As ever, we would like to thank the many headline sponsors whose support helped make the evening the roaring success it always is: Barracuda, Boston, Cloudian, CMS, Epaton, Exertis Hammer, IBM, Spectra Logic, Titan Data Solutions and Veeam, as well as many other category sponsors too numerous to list here.

Most of all of course our thanks go out to you the readers, whose nominations and votes are at the very core of the Storage Awards. We literally couldn’t have done it without you. Last but by no means least, a massive ‘well done’ to all of our deserving winners - here’s to next year!
