Well it’s no secret that the virtualization storm is changing the IT landscape, and I would say we are just starting. Everything Channel’s CRN magazine has identified the top 100 vendors in the virtualization space to help VARs more easily select the best virtualization products for their businesses – of course as an early player in the space, FalconStor is included on the list but that’s not where the news is. The news is that we have a top 100 virtualization list! And the question is how many vendors do we have in this space?
It’s actually very exiting to watch the dynamics in the space, and all the credit goes obviously to VMware for revitalizing the virtualization concept and bringing it more significantly to open systems. And, as I mentioned, it’s only the beginning. The abstraction and consolidation tools that were developed to optimize resource utilization are the drivers of a new era of computing that is focused on the importance of data and cross-platform collaboration.
At FalconStor we are building and delivering a service-oriented data protection model that integrates and leverages different virtualization technologies to simplify data protection processes and map IT to business operations.You can check out CRN’s Virtualization 100 List in the May 23rd issue of CRN.
