BURLINGTON, Mass., June 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Certeon, the application performance company, today announced it has been recognized by Everything Channel in CRN's Virtualization 100 list for the second consecutive year, featuring the top 100 vendors in the virtualization space.
The CRN Virtualization 100 list highlights the most compelling virtualization vendors and solutions to best meet the growing needs of the channel. Certeon and the other featured vendors were chosen by CRN's Editorial staff based on their ability to help VARs transform themselves into true service providers and help organizations and cloud providers take advantage of the ease, flexibility, scalability, elasticity and cost savings that leveraging virtualization has to offer.
Certeon was selected for its virtualized, software-only, application acceleration platform, aCelera, which dramatically improves application response time and runs on any hypervisor, and hardware. aCelera delivers fast and secure data transfer for any user, accessing any application – whether in a private, public or hybrid cloud. It is also the first and only virtual appliance for application acceleration to be certified by VMware.
Additionally, and in keeping with its goal of helping organizations deploy application acceleration "anywhere and to any user," Certeon's aCelera can also be configured for Windows Server 2008 and is ideal for branch offices and small data centers where existing Windows Servers can be leveraged to seamlessly provide application acceleration as an additional Windows Service – without the need for virtualization.
"As enterprises become increasingly virtualized, IT managers will have the flexibility to consolidate and manage a wide range of functionality on virtualized servers, including network intelligence, and increase the performance and manageability (as well as the security, reliability, and scalability) of the application environment." Said Dr. Jim Metzler of Ashton, Metzler & Associates "Certeon's aCelera Virtual Appliance software reflects the first major step in the movement to merge network intelligence into virtualized infrastructures to enable flexible, high performance, and manageable distributed enterprises."
"On behalf of the entire Certeon team I would like to thank CRN for their recognition of our innovative platform and all of our employees for their hard work in developing a world-class application acceleration solution" said Massood Zarrabian president and CEO, Certeon. "
