SAN JOSE, Calif., May 5, 2016 – Robin Systems, a Silicon Valley-based enterprise software company, announced it was recognized with a Stevie® Award as part of the 14th Annual American Business Awards. Robin was picked as the Silver winner in the “New Product of the Year – Software – Big Data Solution” category for its innovative container-based, high-performance virtualization platform.
“This recognition is a tremendous honor for Robin and a clear acknowledgement of our innovation which enables customers to consolidate data-centric application without compromising performance or predictability, reduces CAPEX and OPEX, and dramatically simplifies application life cycle,” said Chief Executive Officer Premal Buch of Robin. “I am very proud of the Robin team – our employees are focused on delivering on a challenging vision, and we have taken the first steps to transform that vision into reality.”
In March of this year Robin announced its initial product, Robin Containerization Platform for Enterprise Applications, the industry’s first Application-Defined Data Center software platform. Robin Containerization Platform is a container-based server and storage virtualization platform that delivers bare-metal performance, guaranteed application-to-spindle SLAs, and unprecedented operational agility.
