EDEN PRAIRIE, MN--(Marketwire - April 29, 2010) -  Xiotech Corporation, the leader in Intelligent Application Storage, was named the "All Around Excellence" winner in the Customer Choice Awards at last week's BladeSystems Insight Summit 2010. Attendees -- comprising 120 senior IT and data center executives from mid-sized and large corporations -- selected Xiotech from ten other companies for the event's highest honor.

BladeSystems Insight is a national executive summit focused on blade, virtualization and other technologies transforming the data center. Featuring a qualified audience of senior-level IT decision-makers and industry thought leaders, the event is designed to help IT vendors build brand recognition and gain market share in the fast-growing blade marketplace.

"Our Intelligent Storage Element (ISE™) blades really resonated with the Summit audience," said Rob Peglar, senior fellow for Xiotech and panelist at the BladeSystems Insight Summit 2010. "Being chosen for this recognition by the end users themselves -- particularly given the caliber of the competition -- truly validates our technology, products and vision and underscores our reputation for being a trusted advisor to enterprises everywhere."

With its revolutionary ISE blades as the foundational element, Xiotech's Intelligent Application Storage solutions empower business applications to manage, scale and seize control of storage environments by unlocking traditional and virtual application performance, delivering linear scalability, maximizing utilization, minimizing provisioning and management complexity and vastly reducing cost of ownership.

"BladeSystems Insight is the longest running hosted, invitational three-day Summit geared to an exclusive audience of C-level and VP-level technology managers," said Bill Sell, vice president and general manager of CrossTech Forums, producer of the BladeSystems Insight Summit. "Through a series of case study presentations, general sessions and a unique MeetingZone set up, sponsors interact with attendees and at the conclusion of the conference, are nominated for various awards. We are very pleased to be awarding the 2010 BladeSystems Insight Summit All Around Excellence Award to Xiotech."
