CRN has just released its annual Data Center 100 list, which highlights channel-friendly technology vendors that are powering, supporting and protecting today’s data center. As part of that list, CRN highlights the top infrastructure providers in what it calls the “Infrastructure 20.”
The CRN Infrastructure 20 is a who’s-who list of the top technology infrastructure companies. According to CRN, “The infrastructure side of the data center business is where vendors with longtime ties to the channel can be found.” Silver Peak is proud to be part of this prestigious group, which includes Schneider Electric, Brocade, Cisco, Dell, Eaton, EMC, HP, Hitachi Data Systems, IBM, NetApp, and Oracle.
In Silver Peak’s case, data volumes are increasing, disaster recovery requirements are becoming more ubiquitous, and applications are moving to the cloud. This means IT pros need to move more data, more quickly over longer distances.
Silver Peak data acceleration software overcomes the distance, quality and capacity challenges that are inherent in today’s wide area networks (WANs), and the Silver Peak Champions channel partner program provides the unique advantage of selling the industry’s highest-performance and most flexible WAN acceleration solutions on the market.
“Silver Peak’s partner program provides innovative product packaging, training, and ongoing support for our global partner community,” said Larry Cormier, senior vice president, worldwide marketing for Silver Peak. “Recognition as one of the CRN Data Center 100 and inclusion in the CRN Infrastructure 20 is a reflection of our dedication to the channel and underscores our commitment to our partner’s success.”
Kelley Damore, vice president and editorial director for UBM Channel said, “The 2013 Data Center 100 list recognizes vendors that, over the course of 2012, have shown a dedication to the innovation and advancement of today’s data center services. The recent upsurge in cloud computing has solution providers searching for new ways to ensure their clients maintain connectivity while mitigating costs and security threats. We congratulate each vendor on the 2013 Data Center 100 list for providing a significant growth opportunity for solution providers to build their business by offering cutting-edge products and services to customers.”
