CRN has named Riverbed to its 2021 Software-Defined Data Center 50 list. This annual list acknowledges technology vendors that partner with solution providers to virtualize all aspects of data center infrastructure – from storage and networking to compute and security – to truly deliver a software-centric IT solution.
We are proud to share the announcement of this award that honors Riverbed and its partner community in delivering market-leading IT solutions that enable hybrid and modern work-from-anywhere environments.
The list is selected by a panel of CRN editors each year, who review companies based on feedback from solution providers in the industry, as well as the strength of the vendors’ technology portfolios, effectiveness, visibility, business and sales influence, and their impact on the channel.
CRN’s Software-Defined Data Center 50 List recognizes forward-thinking technology providers that seek to nurture, innovate, and grow the data center industry with modern, software-centric technologies. Riverbed was chosen as a premier technology supplier based on the strength of the product portfolio it offers through partners, as well as its overall standing in the IT channel.
