SAN JOSE, Calif., Dec. 8, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- iXsystems has been named a Silver winner in the Product Line of the Year category for its Enterprise Storage Product Line and a Silver winner in the Most Customer Friendly Company of the Year - Medium (100-999 employees) category in Best in Biz Awards. Best in Biz is the only independent business awards program judged by members of the press and industry analysts.
The secret to iXsystems' award-winning success is delivery of a comprehensive storage product line, one that meets the needs of a variety of markets and customers, and scales to a capacity approaching 4PB. The iXsystems Enterprise Data Storage product line is the first complete line of storage systems on the market to provide a consistent user experience and compatibility through every model, from the smallest home storage system to the largest Enterprise data center solution.
FreeNAS, the world's most popular Software-Defined Storage system, provides the foundation for iXsystems' Data Storage product line, which stair-steps from the compact and efficient FreeNAS Mini system aimed for home and small office users, through the rackmountable FreeNAS Certified models, and up to the Enterprise-class TrueNAS arrays.
This award and iXsystems' five-star customer service rating reaffirm iXsystems' commitment to providing an unrivaled customer experience by building lifelong partnerships with clients and working as an extension of their IT Teams. Unlike most computer companies, iXsystems unifies its engineering, sales, manufacturing, and support teams at one headquarters and manufacturing facility. No core component of the business is ever outsourced or sub-contracted.
"iXsystems' recent showing in Best in Biz is testament to our genuine commitment to our clients that begins with our white glove, consultative sales approach and completes with the five-star customer support that only a tightly-integrated company can provide. This award also confirms that the IT market demands consistent product lines. Combining this with TrueNAS' network services and sharing protocols, an easy to manage file system and robust data protection options ensures that TrueNAS provides the best TCO for our customers," said Mike Lauth, CEO of iXsystems.
By leveraging decades of expertise in hardware design, its contributions to many Open Source software communities, and corporate stewardship of leading Open Source projects (FreeNAS and PC-BSD), iXsystems has become an industry leader in building innovative storage solutions and superior enterprise servers for a global marketplace that relies on open technology.
Thousands of companies, universities, and government organizations have come to rely on iXsystems' storage, servers, and consultative approach to doing business. Headquartered in the heart of Silicon Valley since its founding in 1996, through incorporation into BSDi in 2000, and expansion as iXsystems in 2005, the dedication to white-glove customer service, industry-leading support, and transparent technological contributions has never wavered and continues to help lay the foundation for a new era powered by open technology.
