Silver Peak Systems, the leader in accelerating data over distance, today announced it has been named to CRN’s 2013 Infrastructure 20 list, which highlights the top infrastructure providers in CRN’s 2013 Data Center 100 list. This annual list recognizes channel-friendly technology vendors that increase data center efficiency in an environmentally and economically friendly manner.

This includes the broadest portfolio of virtual machines that can be deployed anywhere and on any platform, including all common hypervisors.

“Silver Peak’s partner program provides innovative product packaging, training, and ongoing support for our global partner community,” said Larry Cormier, senior vice president, worldwide marketing for Silver Peak. “Recognition as one of the CRN Data Center 100 and inclusion in the CRN Infrastructure 20 is a reflection of our dedication to the channel and underscores our commitment to our partner’s success.”

“The 2013 Data Center 100 list recognizes vendors that, over the course of 2012, have shown a dedication to the innovation and advancement of today’s data center services,” said Kelley Damore, Vice President and Editorial Director for UBM Channel. “The recent upsurge in cloud computing has solution providers searching for new ways to ensure their clients maintain connectivity while mitigating costs and security threats. We congratulate each vendor on the 2013 Data Center 100 list for providing a significant growth opportunity for solution providers to build their business by offering cutting-edge products and services to customers.”
