Sponsored by Everything Channel Events, the XChange XCellence Awards measure overall Business and Technology Integrator perceptions of Vendor products, services and programs during an XChange event. XChange attendees evaluate and score each vendor’s presentation, message and presence throughout the event, and awards were presented during the XChange XCellence Awards Luncheon on November 12, 2010 in Las Vegas.
XChange Tech Innovators is the nation's most unique channel event of the year, bringing together more than 120 pre-qualified decision-making VARs from North America as well as powerful leading and emerging technology vendors.
The XChange XCellence Awards cover 7 key categories, including an Overall Best of Show award. “The XChange XCellence Awards winners are selected by top solution providers at each event and honor the vendors with the most exceptional products, programs and technologies,”
“Innovation is the cornerstone of all we do and the engine that drives the IT market. The technologies we rely on, and consider commonplace today, started on the backs of engineers and scientists in a R&D lab years ago. We applaud this year's winners for the hard work, vision and commitment to providing innovative solutions to our industry and solution providers,” said Kelley Damore, Vice President, Editorial Director for Everything Channel.
Tech Innovators were nominated by their individual companies, and final selections were made by the editors of CRN and the CRN Test Center. Both awards were presented on November 12th at the 2010 XChange Tech Innovators Conference at the J.W. Marriott in Las Vegas.
Expanded coverage of the 2010 Tech Innovators will be featured in the December issue of CRN Magazine and online at www.crn.com.
“ION is honored to be recognized by the editors of Everything Channel’s CRN Magazine, for our SR-71 SpeedServer application engine,” said Keith Josephson, ION's Vice President of Engineering. “The SR-71 delivers the random I/O performance of hundreds of disks in a dedicated storage area network to a single application on a small SSD-optimized server at 10% of the price, 2% of the energy and 1% of the space. We were extremely pleased that the representatives attending the 2010 XChange Tech Innovators Conference from the leading VARS in North America shared our excitement for the solutions that the SR-71 SpeedServer enables and named ION as Breakthrough Technology Vendor in the Xchange Xcellence Awards.”
