—Finalists for the annual Most Valuable Product (MVP) awards, which are co-sponsored by InfoStor and the Association of Storage Networking Professionals (ASNP), were selected today in seven product categories.

Out of hundreds of product submissions, the finalists were determined by a select group of industry analysts, consultants, and members of the ASNP.

The winners in six of the seven categories will be determined by end-user voting—by the members of the ASNP and InfoStor's end-user readers. (The winner in the Most Innovative Product category will be determined by industry analysts and consultants.)

The MVP Awards winners will be announced at the Storage World Conference in Long Beach, CA, June 20-22.
