About The Green Circle Awards


In June 2014, VMTurbo launched The Green Circle Community, a self-proclaimed online community of innovators, virtualization experts, and forward-thinking IT pros. Inspired by the green circle of health from the VMTurbo user interface, The Green Circle Community is home to VMTurbo's more than 1,000 customers, and encompasses an IT philosophy of "a better, smarter way." It is a place occupied by the brightest minds in virtualization.


The 1st Annual Green Circle Awards is a series of awards honoring VMTurbo's customers, who have not only converged their environments to a Desired State, but have also contributed to the advancement of a smarter IT, and because of it, a better world. The Green Circle Awards were awarded live on August 25, 2014 at VMTurbo's VMworld VIP Reception in San Francisco, California.
