REDWOOD CITY, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 05/22/12 -- Coraid Inc., a leading developer of Ethernet SAN solutions with more than 1,500 customers worldwide, today announced it has been recognized in CRN's 2012 Virtualization 100 list. Featuring the top 100 vendors in the virtualization space, the Virtualization 100 is an annual list published by UBM Channel's CRN that helps solution providers identify and evaluate virtualization products and programs. CRN lists are considered the de facto resource solution providers use to make strategic technology decisions to support their businesses.
Companies on the 2012 Virtualization 100 list were selected by CRN editors based on their innovative and forward-thinking approach to selling products and services through the IT Channel. Vendors on the list were selected for their ability to help VARs transform themselves into true service providers that help organizations take advantage of the ease, flexibility, scalability, elasticity and cost savings that virtualization has to offer.
"With all the noise in the marketplace, it can sometimes be challenging for solution providers to determine which virtualization company would be the best to partner with," said Kelley Damore, vice president, editorial director, UBM Channel. "That's why we developed our annual Virtualization 100 list, to highlight and outline the top 100 technology vendors in the space that power, support and evangelize the benefits of virtualization across all parts of the IT infrastructure. We congratulate each member on the Virtualization 100 for making this year's list."
Coraid EtherDrive solutions provide enterprises of all sizes with flexible, high-performance storage while eliminating the complexity of traditional SAN solutions. Using an innovative scale-out SAN architecture and standard Ethernet, Coraid EtherDrive storage arrays provide lower OPEX and faster-than-Fibre-Channel performance at commodity-hardware economics. EtherDrive is ideally suited to dynamic high-performance computing, virtualization, video and cloud-computing environments.
"Virtualization has transformed the data center and is changing all aspects of IT operations. Coraid's Ethernet SAN and scale-out architecture deliver the promise of an affordably fast SAN with the performance required to satisfy the increasing storage demands of the virtualized environment," said Josh Leslie, vice president of North American sales for Coraid. "We are working with our partners to help their customers to eliminate the storage bottleneck legacy vendors have created and provide the scale-out, flexible architecture needed for virtualization and cloud-computing environments. We are honored to be recognized in CRN's 2012 Virtualization 100 as a top vendor driving innovation in a challenging market."
The 2012 Virtualization list will be featured on CRN.com and in the May 2012 issue of CRN.
