SANTA CLARA, Calif., Feb. 18, 2014 – Silver Peak, the leader in accelerating data over distance, today announced that it has been recognized in the CRN Data Center 100 annual list, featuring top technology vendors whose solutions are vital for powering today’s data centers. 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.

Silver Peak is listed among the CRN Infrastructure 20, which recognizes the top data center infrastructure providers. Silver Peak software powers the industry’s highest performance and most-flexible virtual and physical data acceleration products.

We applaud their success and look forward to their continued contributions to this industry.”

And as IT managers make the shift to software-defined everything, we're right there with them, offering a robust set of virtual options buyers can choose now or upgrade to at a later date at no extra cost."
