About the Diogenes Labs-Storage Magazine Quality
The Diogenes Labs-Storage magazine Quality Awards are designed to
identify and recognize products that have proven their quality and
reliability in actual use. The results are derived from a survey of
qualified Storage readers who assessed products in five main
categories: sales-force competence, product features, initial
product quality, product reliability and technical support. Our
methodology incorporates statistically valid polling that
eliminates market share as a factor. Our objective is to identify
the most reliable product on the market regardless of vendor name,
reputation or size. Products are rated on a 1.0-8.0 scale, where
8.0 is the most favorable score.
