NASHUA, N.H., February 26, 2018 – Plexxi, the leader in Hyperconverged Networking (HCN), announced today that CRN, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Plexxi to its 2018 Data Center 100 list. This annual list recognizes technology suppliers that excel at powering, supporting and protecting the complex and demanding data centers on which today’s businesses rely. This is the second time Plexxi has been named to the CRN Data Center 100 list. Once again, Plexxi was recognized on the list of top Software Defined Data Center companies.
CRN editors select companies for the Data Center 100 list on the basis of multiple criteria, including each company’s overall impact on the market, its influence on the channel as a whole, and the types of technology and services it makes available to its partners.
As a leader in HCN for data center fabrics, Plexxi’s offers an optimized and workload driven network operating environment for agile data centers. The Plexxi fabric concurrently optimizes for classic client-server and modern scale-out applications enabling customers to run any workload anywhere in the data center. Thanks to Plexxi’s unique, distributed virtual spine technology, customers can now build truly flat, large scale cloud fabrics with the agility, performance and low linear port costs.
In addition to recognizing technology suppliers for outstanding products and services, the Data Center 100 serves as a valuable guide for solution providers looking for best-in-class vendors providing data center infrastructure, data center management tools, software-defined data center technology and data center services.
“CRN’s Data Center 100 vendors are aptly recognized for their best-in-class technologies and services, which enable solution providers to drive greater innovation, efficiency and profit in the data center,” said Bob Skelley, CEO, The Channel Company. “The 2018 list identifies the current top vendors in this vital market, helping solution providers find proven data center experts who can deliver the depth and breadth of materials, services and expert guidance required to meet their customers’ needs.”

While network innovation from traditional vendors has been stalling over the last decade, Plexxi’s new vision for the modern data center fabric is now accelerating how quickly companies deploy applications and draw business value from their data.”
