TORONTO, ON – February 13, 2018 — / — ioFABRIC Inc’s multi-site, multi-cloud data fabric has won Gold in the Storage magazine and Products of the Year award in the Storage Management Tools category based on its innovation, performance, ease of integration, ease of use, functionality and value. Winners were chosen by the Storage magazine and SearchStorage editorial staff, in conjunction with a team of users, industry experts, analysts and consultants.

Judges picked ioFABRIC Vicinity 3.0 as the Storage Management Tools Gold winner for its use of its branch of artificial intelligence called Swarm Intelligence, which automatically uses the lowest-cost storage while ensuring that each application’s requirements are met and maintained; and the addition of incremental, immutable snapshot and snapcopy technologies that provide an exceptional level of data durability and availability against ransomware attacks.

One judge noted, AI is “one of the keys to future storage.” Another called the storage management tool “very innovative” and said that the product was “maturing nicely since its initial release.” A third judge said Vicinity 3.0 “seems like the most compelling, innovative solution in the [storage management] category.”

Vicinity unlocks the true value of a multi-site multi-cloud data fabric by monitoring and automatically moving data to where it needs to be: low latency, active data remains on-premises while stale data is automatically migrated to the cloud. Vicinity profiles performance, capacity, and data protection capabilities of all storage elements, and delivers the service-level requirements that each application workload demands.

“We are pleased to see the recognition for ioFABRIC Vicinity continues to receive throughout the industry and are especially thrilled that it has won Gold in the Product of the Year in the Storage Management Tools category by Storage magazine and SearchStorage,” said ioFABRIC CEO and co-founder Steven Lamb. “Our entire team works tirelessly to improve the capabilities of our multi-site, multi-cloud data fabric to ensure our customers’ business-critical data is always available and protected in the most cost-optimized way possible. This recognition helps validate that hard work.”

Winners in the 16th annual Storage magazine and SearchStorage Products of the Year awards were announced in the February 2018 issue of Storage manage and online at Additional information about Vicinity 3.0 is available at
