QLogic's Rob Crawford Recognized For Second Consecutive Year As One Of UBM Tech Channel's CRN Channel Chiefs

ALISO VIEJO, Calif., Feb. 19, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- QLogic (Nasdaq:QLGC), a leading supplier of high performance network infrastructure solutions, today announced that Rob Crawford, senior vice president of worldwide sales, has been named one of UBM Tech Channel's CRN 2013 Channel Chiefs for the second consecutive year. This prestigious list of the most influential and powerful leaders in the IT channel recognizes those executives directly responsible for driving channel sales and growth within their organization, while evangelizing and defending the importance of the channel throughout the entire IT industry.

"With the introduction of new solutions including cache-enabled adapters based on our Mt. Rainier technology, QLogic is placing a strong emphasis on creating new business opportunities for our channel partners this year by expanding our Signature Partner Program with enhanced training and benefits, and launching the QLogic Advanced Solutions Partner Program," said Crawford. "QLogic channel partners have been critical to helping us continue our Fibre Channel leadership and gain momentum in the 10Gb Ethernet space. The Advanced Solutions Partner Program opens new doors and creates additional revenue opportunities by enabling resellers to address some of the most performance-challenged areas in the data center. This program provides innovative, clustered application acceleration and shared caching solutions built on our industry-leading adapters."

QLogic Drives 16Gb Fibre Channel Adapter Innovation with Channel Partners

Under Crawford's leadership, QLogic worked closely with channel partners to launch its next-generation FlexSuiteâ„¢ 2600 Series adapters. These "dual-personality" adapters fit seamlessly into current installations as a 16Gb Fibre Channel adapter today and provide end-user field upgradeability to a 10Gb Ethernet (10GbE)-based converged network adapter (CNA) in the future. Unlike rip-and-replace and pay-as-you go alternatives, these adapters use QLogic I/OFlex technology to provide organizations with a future-proof approach to building highly agile infrastructures, protecting existing Fibre Channel investments and delivering a simplified and cost-effective path to network convergence.
