HotLink Hybrid Express Wins Gold in Public and Hybrid Cloud Computing Category for Best of VMworld 2014 Awards

HotLink® Corporation, the market leader in transformation solutions for hybrid IT management, today announced that HotLink Hybrid Express™ 4.0 was selected as the Gold award winner, which is the top honor, in the Public and Hybrid Cloud Computing Technologies category for TechTarget’s Best of VMworld 2014 awards. HotLink Hybrid Express 4.0 is the industry’s first comprehensive, easy-to-implement, enterprise-class platform for deploying, administering and managing hybrid IT resources using VMware vCenter management infrastructure.

The Best of VMworld 2014 awards winners were selected from more than 175 entries by an independent team of experts and editors from TechTarget's SearchServerVirtualization.com, who evaluated products based on innovation, value, performance, reliability and ease of use. As noted by SearchServerVirtualization.com, the judges chose HotLink Hybrid Express because it “migrate(s) not only the networking construct around the environment, but the security construct to other cloud services. They're not just looking at the workload, they look at the whole environment."

With major enhancements launched on August 5, 2014, HotLink Hybrid Express transforms VMware vCenter into a hybrid IT management hub spanning VMware vSphere, Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Hyper-V, Citrix XenServer and Red Hat Enterprise Linux (KVM). HotLink’s patented transformation technology abstracts hybrid platforms, workloads and networking, so vCenter users can holistically administer and manage cross-platform and off-premise resources as easily as homogenous vSphere hosts and virtual machines. Additionally, HotLink extends vCenter capabilities to include management of AWS security groups and provides advanced analytics and diagnostics spanning on- and off-premise resources. HotLink Hybrid Express addresses one of the biggest challenges of the hybrid IT deployments that dominate enterprise roadmaps today: the integration and management of disparate platforms at scale.

A 2012 VMworld Best in Show winner, HotLink Hybrid Express also won the 2013 Best of VMworld award in the Public and Hybrid Cloud Computing category and the 2012 VMworld Top Virtualization Management category, among many other industry awards and accolades. HotLink Hybrid Express provides a dramatically simple and cost-effective administration and management infrastructure, leveraging vCenter skills and investments cross-platform and providing the industry’s most streamlined approach to deploying hybrid IT in the enterprise.

Lynn LeBlanc, CEO of HotLink, said, “Unless transformational technologies are applied, hybrid IT deployments typically result in great complexity, risk, time and cost. HotLink has taken a unique, simple and powerful approach to eliminating hybrid IT complexity, and this award validates these benefits. Providing a single point of administration, management, automation, networking, integration, analytics and more, HotLink Hybrid Express is the perfect solution for the hybrid enterprise.”
