- TwinStrata was given Best Overall Value award for "coupling its impressive product with an appealing price," said the Info-Tech Research Group Research Document.
- TwinStrata CloudArray® was the only product in the report given an overall score of "exemplary."

Along with its high scores in product breadth and affordability, TwinStrata was recognized by Info-Tech Research Group as an "Innovator" in the Cloud Backup Gateway market.

"Ideal for mid-market clients, TwinStrata boasts a highly practical solution that takes advantage of off-site replication," John Sloan, lead research analyst at Info-Tech Research Group said in the report. "On a relative basis, TwinStrata maintained the highest Info-Tech Value ScoreTM of the vendor group. Vendors were indexed against TwinStrata's performance to provide a complete, relative view of their product offerings." The average Value Score of all vendors was 69.2 compared to TwinStrata's score of 100.
The report also cites TwinStrata customer Darryl Enfield, Director of Information Systems at Plug Power Inc., as saying, "TwinStrata has been great to work with - they made an exceptional effort to understand our business and needs, and then work with us in translating those needs into their product line. I'd rate them one of the top five companies I've ever worked with, from a pre-sales perspective to actually running the product."
