MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/21/14 -- Tintri Inc., the leading producer of smart storage for virtualization and cloud environments, announced today it has been recognized as one of 2014's hottest emerging technology vendors by CRN, the top news source for solution providers and the IT channel. The annual Emerging Vendors list identifies up-and-coming technology vendors that have introduced innovative new products, creating opportunities for channel partners in North America to create high-margin, cutting-edge solutions for their customers.
Tintri's unique application-aware storage solutions look beyond traditional or generic flash-based storage and instead focuses on simplifying storage management and improving data management automation for virtualized environments and the cloud. By providing storage that sees, learns and adapts, IT administrators are able to focus on other business initiatives by eliminating complex planning and troubleshooting. With Tintri smart storage, IT administrators have greater VM-level visibility, control, insight and agility into their storage needs.
The Tintri Channel Partner program is a key component of Tintri's global go-to-market strategy as the company scales to accommodate the exponential growth in demand for its smart storage. The company recently announced that its customers have deployed 200,000 virtual machines on Tintri storage systems. With the Channel Partner program, Tintri's partners can accelerate their customers' adoption of smart storage.
"Solution providers are always on the hunt for the next big technology trend so that they can bring new solutions to their customers before they even know they need them. These vendors are on the forefront of IT innovation and are offering products and services that channel partners can use to stay ahead of the competition," said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company, publisher of CRN. "We congratulate 2014's Emerging Vendors for creating the next wave of technology that will drive the IT industry forward and for opening the door to new, unique solutions from the IT channel."
"We are excited to be awarded this distinction for the fourth year in a row," said Derek Dal Ponte, Senior Director of Channel Marketing at Tintri. "Approaching 100 percent channel business, Tintri partners continue to see increased opportunities, larger deals and more repeat business characterized by close to 70 percent of our customers making repeat purchases averaging 2.5x of their initial order. With the growing demand for application-aware storage, we are rapidly expanding our business partnerships every day."
Companies included in CRN's 2014 Emerging Vendors list were founded in 2008 or later and are actively working with channel partners in North America. The list, along with information about each vendor, will be published in CRN's August 2014 issue and will also be available online at www.crn.com.
