Compellent Wins Third Consecutive Infoworld Technology of the Year Award

Storage Center Honored for Enterprise-Class Features, High Performance and Ease-of-Use

EDEN PRAIRIE, MN -- (Marketwire) -- 01/18/10 -- Compellent Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: CML) wins the InfoWorld 2010 Technology of the Year award for its storage area network (SAN), making this the third consecutive time the product has been acknowledged as a leader in the storage industry. The Compellent SAN offers enterprise features, such as automated tiered storage, advanced virtualization, thin provisioning, continuous snapshots and thin replication enabling fluid data management for enterprises of all sizes.

Selected by IDG's InfoWorld Test Center editors and reviewers, the annual awards identify the best and most innovative products on the IT landscape. Not all categories are judged every year and the SAN award is given out every other year. Winners are selected from all of the products tested during the past year, with the final selections made by InfoWorld's Test Center staff. All products reviewed by the Test Center are eligible to win.

"InfoWorld Technology of the Year award winners are not just the best products in their class, but the products that are leading the way in the technology categories that businesses and IT professionals should care most about," said Doug Dinely, Executive Editor/Test Center, InfoWorld. "These are the products that are changing the way businesses operate and how people work."

The Compellent SAN was chosen for the way it combines enterprise-class features, great performance over Fibre Channel or iSCSI and remarkable ease-of-use. As stated by InfoWorld Test Center, even untrained administrators can effectively manage their storage system with the Compellent SAN's intuitive wizards. More experienced personnel can use the simple command line scripting interface to provision multiple LUNs with one step. In giving the award to Compellent, InfoWorld also emphasized that "in virtualization environments, cloning drives to make new VMs is very easy and quick, and protecting critical VMs via replication to a second array is a snap."

"InfoWorld is one of the most influential and respected IT resources available, and we're thrilled to receive the Technology of the Year Award recognition again," said Bruce Kornfeld, vice president of marketing, Compellent. "It is truly an honor to have the editors and reviewers recognize how Compellent's unique approach to storage is helping IT departments be more efficient and reduce storage costs through the life of a system."
