NaviSite, Inc., a Time Warner Cable Company and premier provider of enterprise-class hosting, managed applications, managed messaging and managed cloud services, today announced it has received two leading industry awards from CRN: the Data Center 100 list, which recognizes the top 100 data centers, and the Top 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors list, which recognizes the top 100 most innovative and creative cloud vendors. These awards cement NaviSite’s position as a leader in delivering secure cloud-based storage technology and solutions, as well as in developing innovative and creative solutions to help customers and partners maximize the flexibility, scalability and cost savings possible through cloud technology. “We are honored to be recognized by CRN for the innovation and depth of offerings we have delivered in the Cloud arena,” said Craig Sandman, senior director of NaviSite’s channel program. “We have a demonstrated track record of enabling our channel partners to position themselves strategically with their end-customers, unlocking efficiency and innovation by leveraging our comprehensive and personalized portfolio of cloud-based solutions.” NaviSite was recognized in CRN’s Data Center 100 list, which honors technology vendors for powering, supporting and protecting data center services in an environmentally and economically friendly manner, while working to boost efficiency and productivity. The companies recognized for this award are selected by the CRN editorial staff after months of in-depth research and nominations from solution providers. Namely, each vendor on the Data Center 100 list has recently generated opportunities for service providers to grow their business by offering cutting-edge products and services to customers. To be considered for the Data Center 100 list, vendors must have recently offered products and/or services that demonstrated an ability to increase data center efficiency, performance and ROI while reducing energy consumption, waste and cost. NaviSite was also recognized in CRN’s Top 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors list, which honors the most innovative companies in the channel and in the cloud market today. This award is based on a cloud vendor’s approach to supporting solution providers in the IT channel, as well as their ability to create an innovative product or partner program. These Cloud vendors have helped resellers transform themselves into true service providers, ultimately helping organizations and enterprises take advantage of the ease, flexibility, scalability and savings that cloud computing has to offer.
