SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 16, 2015) - CloudVelox, a leader in hybrid cloud disaster recovery (DR) and migration, today announced its Pilot Light DR was selected as a finalist for Interop Las Vegas' 2015 Best of Interop Awards in the Cloud and Virtualization category for advancing business technology. The Best of Interop Awards recognize exhibitors for innovation and technological advancements in nine technology categories. Award winners will be announced from Interop Las Vegas 2015, which takes place April 27-May 1 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center.

"Cloud DR is coming of age for enterprise workloads thanks to advances in hybrid infrastructure automation. Manual processes for discovery and provisioning compute, storage, networking and security resources from on premises into the cloud are becoming increasingly automated," said Rajeev Chawla, chief executive officer of CloudVelox. "Being named a finalist in Best of Interop further validates our leadership in the automation of otherwise costly and tedious processes that have until recently limited Cloud DR to small, virtualized environments."

CloudVelox will showcase Pilot Light DR at Interop Las Vegas, the industry's premier technology event focusing on the present and future innovations driving the IT community forward. Pilot Light DR running on Amazon Web Services (AWS) offers a fast, safe and cost-effective way to automate disaster recovery services. Pilot Light DR delivers automated cloud-based disaster recovery for multi-tier physical and virtual production applications. The platform removes the complexity of performing an application failover or a complete disaster recovery, resulting in more reliable DR, reduced demand on IT staff and reduced cost.

"We extend a big congratulations to CloudVelox and all Best of Interop finalists on the success of their new products and positive impact on business efficiency," said Interop General Manager Jennifer Jessup. "These are the types of advancements that define the future of IT, and we're excited for Interop attendees to be able to experience them firsthand in the Expo."

After a thorough review of all finalists, an expert judging panel will announce the winners on Tuesday, April 28, at 5:30 pm in the Interop Theater on the Expo Floor. In addition to the nine category winners, special honors will be awarded, including an overall Best of Interop Grand Prize and the Best Startup. Interop attendees will select an Audience Choice Award winner the next day on the keynote stage.
