An independent panel of judges from leading nonprofit and professional organizations, as well as research institutions including CERN openlab, Enderle Group, Pyalla Technologies and Secure64 Software reviewed the submission. Criteria considered by the judges included difficulty of the IT challenge, originality of the solution and results achieved. The judges awarded Gravic’s ground-breaking work in new software solutions that enable enterprises to improve the performance, flexibility and cost associated with mission-critical environments. Ric Lewis, Vice President and Interim General Manager of HP's Business Critical Systems Group, and Pauline Nist, Intel’s General Manager of Enterprise Software Strategy, presented the awards.
The award-winning case study involved HP Integrity NonStop NS1200 servers running Gravic Shadowbase software to establish a fault-tolerant architecture for a banking customer located on the Pacific Ring of Fire, which experiences frequent earthquakes and volcanic activity. With an active/active data replication solution in place, critical banking applications remain active and reachable even in the event of natural disasters. Gravic's HP and Intel based infrastructure allows the bank to avoid application downtime, both for planned and unplanned outages, as well as dramatically improves failover time.
