"We are proud to be recognized in the CRN Datacenter 100 list for enabling organizations to embrace location-independent computing, turning distance and location into a competitive advantage by giving companies the flexibility to host apps and data in the most optimal locations that the business demands," said Keith Hoskison, senior vice president, Worldwide Channels and Strategic Account Programs at Riverbed. "Through the Riverbed Application Performance Platform™, and our network of 2,200 partners, we are making it easier and faster for customers to put the benefits of location-independent computing to work, from the datacenter to the branch office to your home office."

Riverbed made the list because of the strategic value it offers to customers across its entire Application Performance Platform. During the last four years, Riverbed had expanded beyond its original WAN optimization solution, Riverbed® Steelhead® -- which has been the leading WAN Optimization product for 10 years with more than 50% market share -- to now offer a complete set of integrated application and data delivery solutions that uniquely allow Riverbed to detect and fix application and data delivery performance problems across an entire distributed enterprise before an end user even notices. The Riverbed Application Performance Platform gives companies the flexibility to host applications and data in the locations that best serve the business while ensuring the flawless delivery of those apps to better leverage global resources, radically reduce the cost of running their business and maximize employee productivity.

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

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.
