GreenBytes Named to the CRN Data Center 100

Annual List Features Cutting-Edge Technologies Powering the Data Center to Help Solution Providers Navigate Vendor Landscape

PROVIDENCE, RI--(Marketwired - Feb 10, 2014) - GreenBytes®, Inc., a developer of full-featured desktop virtualization storage optimization software, today announced that it has been recognized in the CRN Data Center 100 annual list, featuring technology vendors whose solutions are vital for powering today's data center. CRN developed the list to help solution providers navigate the marketplace and identify the top companies and technologies across the data center to best meet their needs as they build solutions for their customers.

Identified by the editorial staff, the vendors featured on this list power, support and protect today's data center services from data backup tools to virtual data center solutions and cloud hosting services, while boosting efficiency and productivity. The list honors vendors in five different data center technology categories: Infrastructure, Tools, Virtualization, Service Providers, and Designers and Builders.

Named a winner in the Virtualization category, GreenBytes has been recognized by CRN for its groundbreaking work in desktop virtualization storage optimization with products including the IO Offload Engine appliance and vIO virtual storage appliance, which allow businesses to easily overcome data storage barriers and deploy high-performing, fully persistent virtual desktops at cloud-scale -- without adding expensive, additional RAM. The solutions work by diverting heavy data traffic from the customer's existing storage to GreenBytes solutions using patented zero latency inline deduplication technology, which removes redundant data in real-time before it's written to the storage device, reducing desktop virtualization storage needs by up to 98%, cutting virtual desktop ROI time in half.

"The Data Center 100 list recognizes vendors that embrace innovation, efficiency and sustainability, to bring the data center to the next level," said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. "These dynamic companies are led by forward-thinking executives who understand today's data center environment. We applaud their success and look forward to their continued contributions to this industry."

"Being named to CRN's Data Center 100 in the highly competitive Virtualization category is a great honor for GreenBytes," said Dan Beauregard, Senior Director of Strategic Alliances at GreenBytes. "As service providers and the channel continue to move users to virtual desktop infrastructure, GreenBytes is proud to be recognized for its key enabling technology in optimizing storage for desktop virtualization, providing end users with a cost effective, highly performant and feature-rich virtual desktop experience."

Coverage of the Data Center 100 will be featured in the February/March issue of CRN, and online at
