          MEMORANDUM DECISION AND ORDER GRANTING [133] PETITION TO CONFIRM ARBITRATION AWARD

          David Nuffer United States District Judge.

         Petitioner StorageCraft Technology Corporation (“Petitioner”) has filed a Petition to Confirm Arbitration Award (the “Petition”)[1] seeking to enter the Corrected and Amended Final Award dated November 15, 2016 (the “Final Award”)[2] as a judgment against respondents StorageCraft UK, StorageCraft Deutschland GmbH, SOTEC Software AG, StorageCraft Espana SL, StorageCraft Italia S.r.L., and Dominik Zingg (the “Respondents”). Based on the unopposed Petition, and for good cause appearing, the Petition is GRANTED.

         The court finds:

         1. The Petitioner and Respondents agreed to submit to arbitration any dispute, controversy, or claim arising out of, relating to, or in connection with their respective contracts or the software that was the subject of their contracts.[3]

         4. The ICDR panel issued an initial arbitration award dated August 26, 2016.[6] This initial award was amended and replaced by the Final Award dated November 15, 2016 and made in Salt Lake City, Utah.[7]

         5. The Utah Uniform Arbitration Act provides that a party may petition the court for an order confirming an arbitration award.[8] The court shall issue a confirming order unless the award is lawfully modified, corrected, or vacated.[9]

         6. The Federal Arbitration Act provides that judgment of the court shall be entered upon an arbitration award on an application “to the United States court in and for the district within which such award was made” if no court is specified in the agreement of the parties.[10]

         7. The parties' arbitration agreement provides more broadly that “[i]n the absence of challenge, judgment on the award may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.”[11]

         8. The Final Award has not been modified, corrected, or vacated.
