BELLEVUE, Wash., July 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- OSNEXUS, the leading developer of Software Defined Storage (SDS) solutions, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named OSNEXUS to its 2016 list of Emerging Vendors. This annual list recognizes recently founded, up-and-coming technology suppliers who are shaping the future of the IT channel through unique technological innovations. In addition to celebrating these standout companies, the Emerging Vendors list also serves as a valuable resource for solution providers looking to expand their portfolios with cutting-edge technology.
OSNEXUS focuses on continuous Software Defined Storage innovation with a strong focus on product quality and industry leading support.

"The select group of companies on our Emerging Vendors list have already made a name for themselves in their short time in the IT community, introducing leading-edge technologies with the potential to transform their segments of the IT market," said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. "These tech suppliers are quickly making their mark on the industry and are the ones solution providers should watch in 2016."
