People’s Choice Awards: Winning Followers, One Vote at a Time

What could Barbra Streisand, John Wayne, Star Wars and The Sting possibly have in common? More than forty years ago, they were the most popular entities in popular culture as measured by the inaugural edition of The People’s Choice Awards.

Earning the People’s Choice award in the cloud storage/backup category provides confirmation that Cloud Recovery – AWS exceeds our customers’ expectations for managing their growing data, and driving down the cost of cloud-based recovery.

The People’s Choice Awards were created in 1974 to recognize the people and works of popular culture, as voted on by the public. And while the entertainment industry has always been well-represented in the culture wars, the business world now has its own People’s Choice Awards: The People’s Choice Stevie® Awards for Favorite New Products, a feature of The American Business Awards®, the U.S.A.’s top business awards program. Sungard Availability Services (Sungard AS) is proud to receive this year’s People’s Choice award for cloud/storage backup for its Cloud Recovery – AWS solution.

Debuting in 2002, the most recent worldwide public vote in The People’s Choice Stevie® Awards for Favorite New Products was conducted last month. The highest number of votes decides the winners in a variety of product categories. More than 58,000 votes were cast, and Sungard AS’ Cloud Recovery AWS was selected as the overall winner in the Cloud Storage/Backup category.
