MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 29, 2012) - Tintri, the leader in purpose-built, VM-aware storage solutions today announced it has been selected by CRN and UBM Channel as one of the "25 Coolest Emerging Vendors" in 2012. The annual CRN "25 Coolest" list which is handpicked from hundreds of companies, features the most innovative vendors who not only deliver technology that is easy to use, but that can generate the high margins solution providers require. The vendors that make up the CRN Emerging Technology Vendor list were founded in 2006 or later, have revenue under $1 billion and have an active U.S. channel strategy.
Tintri VMstore is the first and only production proven VM-aware storage appliance that provides enterprises simplified and intelligent storage for virtual environments. Designed from the ground up to address virtualization storage challenges, Tintri brings intuitive VM-level manageability, simplicity, and flash performance at the industry's lowest cost per VM workload. The unique approach has allowed the company to grow at an average quarterly rate of 100% since launching in March 2011.
Tintri's Lightning Partner Program provides a wide range of benefits including joint channel development and business planning, an exclusive partner portal, deal registration, co-marketing, training and technical support. The program has helped many solution providers breaking into new accounts and growing their installed base business through add on products and service opportunities.
"This recognition reinforces the importance of VM-aware storage as a must have technology," said Robert Villarreal, Tintri VP of Sales. "We are honored to be recognized as one of CRN's 25 coolest emerging vendors. It's increasingly clear that there's a robust and growing market for VM-aware storage. We plan to keep providing our partners with a unique solution that can help them expand and break into new business opportunities that had previously been unattainable."
"Emerging doesn't mean what it used to," said Kelley Damore, VP, Editorial Director, UBM Channel. "And this collection of up-and-comers and new-to-the-game vendors is on an upward trajectory that a host of young companies that preceded them could barely imagine. With new innovations like cloud computing and virtualization speeding up the pace of innovation, and technology mainstays like storage and networking branching off into new directions, this list encapsulates a tectonic technology shift where the recently founded are starting to rule the roost and become household names much more quickly than in the past."
Selection to the "25 Coolest Emerging Vendors" was made by the CRN editorial team after a review of submitted information. To view a sample of the list and read the editorial accompaniment visit the slideshow here.
