SUNNYVALE, Calif. — Dec. 21, 2017 — DriveScale, the leader in delivering Software Composable Infrastructure (SCI) for modern workloads, today announced that it has been named a silver winner of the Best in Biz Awards in the Most Innovative Product of the Year category. This year’s judging panel recognized DriveScale for pioneering next-generation data center architecture with its innovative SCI technology that is designed to handle the scale and dynamic requirements of modern workloads.
