Each month CRN profiles 10 young vendors that are looking to shake-up the industry in various technology segments -- from security to cloud -- software to hardware.  CRN believes that the 10 highlighted companies recognize the importance of the channel and are looking to align with valued partners to get their names and products out.

According to CRN editors, “AutoVirt is riding the wave of two hot technology trends: virtualization and file system centralization. The Nashua, N.H.-based company's flagship AutoVirt software platform is designed for storage area networks and the cloud.”  

Brian Gladstein, Vice President of Marketing for AutoVirt, was quoted in the review as stating, “AutoVirt helps companies get a handle on the data they're creating and moves that data to the right place based on how it's being used, helping to minimize the costs of securing and backing up that data.”  He goes on to explain that a key advantage AutoVirt enjoys over its competitors includes the fact that, “AutoVirt employs a hardware-agnostic, software-based approach to managing distributed data across multiple devices.”

“We are delighted and honored to have been included on the CRN ‘10 Hot Emerging Vendors’ listing,” said Gladstein.  “For the majority of the channel community, this listing serves as a ‘cheat sheet’ of the companies and technologies that should be included on their own company’s product sell sheet, if not there already.  For IT executives, it serves as a guide as to the solutions they should be looking for from their trusted channel advisors, that will enable them to take their IT initiatives to the next level.”

“We have a number of customers that have been postponing significant IT storage investments due to the poor economy.  Now that they are ready to buy again, they are looking for ways to stretch their dollar and leverage existing infrastructure as much as possible.  That’s where AutoVirt comes in,” said Robert Siemons, CEO, Rain Networks, a full-service business technology solutions provider.  “AutoVirt’s platform seamlessly integrates our customers’ new storage and existing hardware, transparently moving data to wherever in that environment it needs to be.  This gives customers the optimal mix of cost, performance and ease of management.”  He continued, “It’s great for customers because they are able to instantly reap the benefits of the newly deployed technology without disrupting operations.  It’s great for us because it enables us to close deals that were previously at a standstill.”
