Annual list recognizes the most innovative and forward-thinking vendors in the Virtualization space

SAN DIEGO, May 30, 2012 — / — Arkeia Software, a leading provider of fast, easy-to-use and affordable network backup solutions, today announced it has been recognized in CRN’s 2012 Virtualization 100 list. Featuring the top 100 vendors in the virtualization space, the Virtualization 100 is an annual list published by UBM Channel’s CRN that helps Solution Providers identify and evaluate virtualization products and programs. CRN lists are considered the de facto resource Solution Providers use to make strategic technology decisions and support their business.

Companies on the 2012 Virtualization 100 list were selected by CRN editors based on their innovative and forward-thinking approach to selling products and services through the IT Channel. Vendors on the list were selected based on their ability to help VARs transform themselves into true service providers that help organizations take advantage of the ease, flexibility, scalability, elasticity and cost savings that virtualization has to offer.

“With all the noise in the marketplace, it can sometimes be challenging for Solution Providers to determine which virtualization company would be the best to partner with,” said Kelley Damore, Vice President, Editorial Director, UBM Channel. “That’s why we developed our annual Virtualization 100 list, to highlight and outline the top 100 technology vendors in the space that power, support and evangelize the benefits of virtualization across all parts of the IT infrastructure. We congratulate each member or the Virtualization 100 for making this year’s list.”

Arkeia’s backup solutions include the Arkeia Virtual Appliance (AVA) for simple, reliable and affordable data protection in enterprises seeking to optimize the benefits of virtualization. The AVA offers all the features of a hardware appliance, but permits customers to use their choice of hardware. The Arkeia Virtual Appliance for backup also enables enterprises to leverage the capabilities of virtual environments while taking advantage of the unique features included in the all-in-one backup solution. Organizations can benefit from features such as high-availability, load-balancing, and storage provisioning that are already available from virtualization platforms like VMware’s vSphere. When complemented with Arkeia’s Central Management Server, a remote administrator can manage backup policies and review compliance. Arkeia’s new vmOneStep Appliances permit agent-less backups of vSphere hypervisors (both ESX and ESXi). Install the appliance, assign an IP address, and the appliance will auto-discover VMware hypervisors on the network. Users can define a storage target and schedule backups via a web browser; there are no operating systems to deploy and configure, no software to install, no tedious declaration of hypervisors.

“We appreciate this endorsement from CRN and are honored to be considered a market-leading company driving the virtualization industry today,” said Bill Evans, Arkeia CEO. “We can’t imagine how difficult a task it was to narrow down such a crowded category into only 100 vendors, so we congratulate all the other vendors and hope channel partners and customers alike will benefit from this independent evaluation and recommendation.”

The 2012 Virtualization list will be featured on and in the May 2012 issue of CRN.
