AUSTIN, Texas, June 3, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- ClearCube, the leader in virtual desktop products for cloud computing, rack mounted secure workstations and blade PCs, today announced it has been recognized by Everything Channel in CRN's Virtualization 100 list, featuring the top 100 vendors in the virtualization space as identified by the editorial staff of CRN. Designed to help VARs efficiently evaluate virtualization products, the Virtualization 100 serves as the de facto list by which VARs can make strategic technology decisions in virtualization to support their business.
According to the CRN Fast Growth Study, virtualization is the number one technology that VARs are investing in over the next year. The CRN Virtualization 100 list highlights the most compelling virtualization vendors and solutions to best meet the growing needs of the channel. These 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 enterprises take advantage of the ease, flexibility, scalability, elasticity and cost savings that leveraging virtualization has to offer.
ClearCube was selected for its industry-leading VMware Ready Zero Clients and PC blade architecture that offers hardened physical and data security, 99.99% availability and uptime, 44% reduced operating costs, and an improved work environment with enhanced thermal and noise characteristics. ClearCube centralized computing solutions remove the PCs from the desktop and replace them with a small zero client that connects to VMware View virtual machines or powerful blade workstations located in the datacenter.
"From server to storage to desktop virtualization, this technology will become a mainstay for businesses large and small and one of the more profitable technologies for VARs to integrate and sell," said Kelley Damore, Vice President, Editorial Director, Everything Channel. "This list will be the must-read list of the top 100 vendors in the virtualization space and will explain their technology and the opportunities to customize solutions."
"We are honored to be named to Everything Channel's CRN Virtualization 100 list," said Randy Printz, president and CEO, ClearCube. "We've developed some of the industry's most innovative products which resulted in tremendous growth in our virtualization line of business. We're able to equip VARs with specific solutions that address the needs of all employees in an enterprise environment, including power users."
A sample of the Virtualization 100 was featured in the May 23rd issue of CRN Magazine and online at crn.com.
