Cirba Named to Everything Channel’s CRN Virtualization 100 List
New list recognizes the Top 100 Vendors in the Virtualization Space
TORONTO - May 23, 2011 - Cirba Inc., a leader in Data Center Intelligence (DCI) software, today announced it has been recognized by Everything Channel in CRN’s new Virtualization 100 list. Featuring the top 100 vendors in the virtualization space as identified by the editorial staff of CRN, the list serves as the de facto resource by which VARs can begin to evaluate the best virtualization products for their business. Cirba was named to the Virtualization 100 for its leadership in the virtualization management space as its software is leveraged by both large enterprise organizations and the systems integrator community delivering virtualization related services.
Before Cirba, IT services providers and enterprises relied on manually gathered data, spreadsheets and workload sizing tools to provide estimates as to how best to consolidate or optimize a customer’s data center. These primitive approaches introduce significant risk and don’t deliver the savings and efficiencies promised by virtualization. Cirba’s powerful analytics for planning and managing virtual and cloud infrastructure provide a way for service providers to dramatically and positively impact the quality of services and the savings due to virtualization that they deliver their customers.
Cirba enables SI’s to not only differentiate their service offerings by providing better answers for customers for transformations, cloud migration, and virtual environment health assessments, but also earn margin by reselling Cirba software to customers wishing to leverage the solution to manage environments over the long term. Cirba works with many global IT services organizations including IBM Global Technology Services, BT, Cisco, Forsythe, and Hitachi Solutions.
“Cirba supports the complete lifecycle of workload placement and capacity management within virtual and cloud infrastructure in order to enable organizations to build and maintain efficient environments,” said Chuck Tatham, SVP operations and business development, Cirba. “We enable some of the world’s largest organizations to realize the full potential of virtualization technologies in terms of efficiency, savings and flexibility. We’re pleased to be noted on this list which validates our innovative approach and superior product.”
According to the CRN Fast Growth Study, virtualization is the number one technology that VARs are investing in over the next year. The CRN Virtualization 100 list highlights the most compelling virtualization vendors and solutions to best meet the growing needs of the channel. These featured vendors were selected based on their ability to help VARs transform themselves into true service providers and help organizations and enterprises take advantage of the ease, flexibility, scalability, elasticity and cost savings that leveraging virtualization has to offer.
A sample of the Virtualization 100 will be featured in the May 23rd issue of CRN Magazine and online at www.crn.com.
