DataCore Software, a leading provider of Hyper-converged Virtual SAN, Software-Defined Storage and Adaptive Parallel I/O Software, announced today that CRN, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Vice President, Channel Sales & Enablement Devi Madhavan to its prestigious list of 2017 Channel Chiefs. The executives on this annual list represent top leaders in the IT channel who excel at driving growth and revenue in their organizations through channel partners.
Channel Chief honorees are selected by CRN's editorial staff on the basis of their professional achievements, standing in the industry, dedication to the channel partner community and strategies for driving future growth and innovation. Each of the 2017 Channel Chiefs has demonstrated loyalty and ongoing support for the IT channel by consistently promoting, defending and executing outstanding channel partner programs.
As DataCore's Parallel I/O technology continues to unleash the power and productivity of parallel processing to drive storage performance and record response times for database, analytics, real-time and transactional processing applications, 2016 brought strong sales growth for DataCore Hyper-converged Virtual SAN and SANsymphony Software-Defined Storage solutions. This was largely supported by Devi's efforts, which included the development of a new Americas channel team and the implementation of a partner-enablement strategy. Devi was also responsible for driving the establishment and onboarding of dozens of new DataCore Target Partners as go-to resellers.
"The executives on our 2017 Channel Chiefs list have distinguished themselves by building strong partner programs, developing and executing effective business strategy and helping to advance the channel as a whole," said Bob Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. "They represent an extraordinary group of individuals who lead by example and serve as both invaluable advocates and innovators of the IT channel. We applaud their achievements and look forward to their successes in the coming year."
"Parallel processing software and the ability to leverage multicore server technology has been a major game-changer for DataCore," said George Teixeira, president and CEO of DataCore Software. "In 2017, DataCore will introduce new products, partnerships, and Parallel I/O software capabilities that will redefine the company and expand its reach beyond the storage world. Innovative and committed leaders like Devi Madhavan will be an incredibly strong asset in helping our organization reach these milestones."
