Unity Honored in Midrange Storage Category
CAMPBELL, Calif., December 5, 2016 – Nexsan™, a global leader in unified storage solutions, announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Nexsan’s Unity a finalist in the 2016 Product of the Year Awards in the Midrange Storage category. The product was specifically recognized in the Revenue and Profit subcategory that demonstrates its ability to drive new revenue and profit margins. Recognized products represent best-in-breed technological innovation as judged by CRN editors and the solution provider community at large.
Nexsan’s Unity is the first and only hyper-unified storage platform that combines enterprise NAS and high performance block storage, along with enterprise file sync-and-share for today’s connected world. The solution provides the ease of cloud availability with the security of an on-premises private cloud at no additional cost, enabling users to work remotely from anywhere in the world at anytime. Unity includes a plug-and-play ability to sync files across any number of disparate locations with secure communication across standard Internet connections.
In 2016, for the first time, the top five finalists in 17 different Products of the Year technology categories were selected by CRN editors, while solution providers themselves rated those finalists to determine the winner. The Channel Company surveyed solution provider partners working with each of the finalists, asking them to rate the products on Technology, Revenue and Profit, and Customer Demand. The survey garnered over 5,000 responses.
Solution providers considered a number of factors in determining their ratings, including product quality and reliability, technical innovation, ease of integration, potential to drive revenue, and fulfillment of market and customer demands.
“CRN’s Products of the Year certainly brings laudable innovations to market, but they represent much more than technical prowess alone,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. “These valuable products stand at the intersection of technological excellence, outstanding profit potential and high customer demand. Solution providers will find that our 2016 Products of the Year list serves as a valuable, one-of-a-kind guide to the all-around best new products in today’s IT marketplace.”
“This is great validation of Unity as a tool to satisfy IT requirements not only for availability and security, but also end user demands for anytime, anywhere access and sharing,” said Victoria Grey, Chief Marketing Officer (CMO), Nexsan. “As a 100 percent channel based company, this is yet another way to underscore our high ratings from customers and continued momentum in this space.”
The 2016 Products of the Year will be featured in the December issue of CRN and can be viewed online at www.crn.com/poty.
