The judges specifically recognized Unity, the new intelligent Wide Area Network (WAN) fabric from Silver Peak that enables IT to monitor and control cloud connectivity across the enterprise and accelerate Software as a Service (SaaS) applications on any network.

The Best of VMworld 2014 Award winners were selected by an independent team of judges consisting of experts and editors from SearchServerVirtualization who reviewed and evaluated the products according to innovation, value, performance, reliability and ease of use.
