JUPITERMEDIA ANNOUNCES SERVERWATCH.COM PRODUCT EXCELLENCE AWARD WINNERS FOR 2008
(New York, NY - June 3, 2008) - Jupitermedia Corporation (Nasdaq: JUPM) today announced the winners of the 2008 ServerWatch.com Product Excellence Awards as chosen by the readers of the site. ServerWatch.com (www.serverwatch.com), part of the internet.com Network of Web sites, offers hands-on tutorials, in-depth reviews and the latest news and analysis for IT managers responsible for buying and managing Windows, Unix and Linux servers. The authority on server technology, ServerWatch.com covers Web, e-mail, real-time communications, messaging, proxy, application and other server hardware and software.
"ServerWatch.com readers don't play favorites, which was demonstrated by the fact that our ten categories were won by nine different vendors. However, the voting did reveal a pattern as HP and Sun clearly made an impact over the past year. HP was the only vendor to take home two first-place finishes. And Sun, in addition to winning for best midrange server, turned in strong finishes in the Virtual Platform and Green Initiative categories,Ó said Dan Muse, senior executive editor at JupiterOnlineMedia. "We also watched the operating system category closely to gauge Microsoft Windows Server 2008 acceptance. Despite continued competition from the Linux and open source communities, Microsoft will likely continue to flex its server OS muscles for at least another year," Muse added.
