RELDATA Recognized by CRN Magazine as One of the 25 COOLEST Emerging Vendors
RELDATA, the leading provider of consolidated storage solutions that deliver unified iSCSI SAN, NAS and WAN replication from a single virtualized storage platform, today announced that it has been recognized as “One of the 25 Coolest Emerging Vendors” by Everything Channel’s CRN Magazine. RELDATA was chosen from the list of 178 companies in the CRN 2008 Emerging Technology Vendors report.

RELDATA was chosen by CRN based on the innovation and strong channel momentum of its powerful iSCSI SAN storage solution that seamlessly integrates into a customer’s existing storage infrastructure. Customers can incrementally scale storage by simply adding more disk arrays, incrementally scale performance by simply adding more storage controllers, and incrementally scale the number of supported servers/users by upgrading to 10GbE. The solution can be easily expanded by optionally integrating existing third party storage assets for maximum ROI; provisioning enterprise NAS storage for users; implementing WAN replication for disaster recovery of all storage; and migrating data non-disruptively −all through the same user interface with storage automation. Additionally, Fibre Channel SAN customers can implement a cost-effective disaster recovery solution that allows them to migrate to an enterprise iSCSI SAN in the future. RELDATA VARs help their customers simplify their storage operations by building a flexible storage infrastructure, one project at a time.

“We continue to expand our channel, so we are very pleased to be highlighted by CRN as one of the top emerging vendors that solution providers should seriously consider,” said David Hubbard, CEO of RELDATA.

CRN also named RELDATA to the CRN Emerging Tech vendor list in the June 30th issue of the publication. CRN’s Emerging Tech list recognizes companies that are delivering high margins for solution providers with innovative and easy-to-use technologies that undercut industry giants.

According to the CRN Emerging Tech Survey, the top reasons solution providers add emerging technologies include: the technology is superior to other products in the market segment; the technology complements a solution providers’ existing practice areas; emerging vendors provide better service opportunities; emerging vendors pay better attention to partners; emerging vendors offer higher margins, customers want alternative product choices; and emerging vendors have better joint marketing programs. In addition, 61 percent of solutions providers surveyed plan to increase the number of emerging technology vendors they partner with in the next 12 months.

“We congratulate RELDATA for making our Coolest Emerging Technology Vendor list, distinguishing them among the most innovative and channel friendly companies recognized in our Emerging Technology Vendor report this year,” said Robert C. DeMarzo, senior vice president and editorial director, Everything Channel editorial.
