Interop Las Vegas 2014

The Best of Interop Finalists were announced for next week's 2014 Interop Las Vegas show. Looking at the list there seems to be some products and names that did not make the final list.  Was there a product and vendor you feel that should have made the list but did not? It will be interesting to see who wins the Data Center Solutions Category, Cisco or Arista? Only two finalists in the Security Solutions Category, I thought that would be filled. 

I hope that all of the finalists have the products at Interop.
