TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - May 17, 2016) - Steven Lamb, CEO of ioFABRIC Inc., has been announced as a gold winner in the prestigious CEO World Awards® in the category of Most Innovative CEO, Information Technology Software (11-99 employees). The coveted annual CEO World Awards program encompasses the world's best in categories such as leadership, innovation, and new products. Organizations from all over the world are eligible to submit nominations, including public and private, for-profit and non-profit, largest to smallest, and start-ups.
Steven Lamb realized in early 2013 that the way companies were storing and managing data needed to change. The demand for data storage in organizations exceeds the available resources -- both physical and financial. The data storage problem is compounded by the fact that companies have little choice but to purchase purpose-built data storage systems that ultimately create more problems than they solve. This leads to a fractured infrastructure that is costly and complicated to maintain.
It's not an easy problem to solve, and to solve it would change the fundamental way companies have been storing data. But that is what Lamb did when he envisioned a software-defined product that became ioFABRIC Vicinity. Vicinity increases storage capacity and performance with intelligent automation that extends and embraces old and new storage hardware. Vicinity transforms storage seamlessly to keep pace with the future of datacenter technology.
"Industry and peer recognition such as this is extremely gratifying. I am proud and humbled to have been selected Most Innovative CEO," said Lamb. "The team at ioFABRIC has worked hard to bring our transformative solution to the market. We are committed to solving complex data storage issues in ways that will change the industry."
