It’s an exciting day for the channel at Extreme Networks! Today, CRN named Extreme to its 2017 Data Center 100list based on our work in providing innovative cloud and data center solutions for the enterprise. Each year, CRN recognizes technology suppliers that provide superior support and protection for data centers that businesses rely on for efficient operations. The Data Center 100 also serves as a guide for solution providers looking for vendors providing quality data center infrastructure, data center management tools, software-defined data center technology and data center services.
Today’s news comes on the heels of CRN’s annual Top 50 Most Influential Channel Chiefs for 2017 listing in which Bob Gault, Extreme’s executive vice president of worldwide sales, services and channels, was recognized. Bob is part of a select group of recipients because of his work in driving forward our channel program initiatives, particularly around the Extreme Partner Network.
We are honored to be recognized by CRN for both of these awards. It truly is a testament to our global channel team, worldwide partner ecosystem and breadth of leading solutions that we’re able to offer partners and customers. Both distinctions also reflect our strong commitment to partner success in an effort to reward and create differentiation in the market for all our partners, and we’re looking forward to continuing our momentum through 2017!
