MINNEAPOLIS – Feb. 22, 2016 – Arcserve, LLC, the market’s first provider of simple, unified data protection for cloud, virtual and physical environments, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Mike Crest, CEO, to its prestigious list of 2016 Channel Chiefs. The executives on this annual list represent top leaders in the IT channel who excel at driving growth and revenue in their organizations through channel partners.
Channel Chief honorees are selected by CRN’s editorial staff on the basis of their professional achievements, standing in the industry, dedication to the channel partner community and strategies for driving future growth and innovation. Each of the 2016 Channel Chiefs has demonstrated loyalty and ongoing support for the IT channel by consistently promoting, defending and executing outstanding channel partner programs.
As a “partner first” organization, Arcserve is committed to bringing unrivalled data protection solutions to the market through a strong global network of partners in North America, Europe, Africa, Asia-Pacific and the Middle East. It first introduced Arcserve Unified Data Protection (UDP) in 2014 as the only software to combine replication, high availability and true global deduplication technologies in a single, unified solution. Shortly thereafter, Arcserve built out its portfolio with fully integrated appliance and cloud offerings to become the first all-in-one data protection solution for cloud, virtual and physical environments. Most recently, it announced the new release of Arcserve UDP to deliver continuous availability, instant recovery, enterprise storage array snapshot integration and significantly enhanced protection for Linux™ environments. Its highly decorated platform transforms data protection with a single solution that accelerates partner revenue opportunities and expands market reach.
“We are honored to present the 2016 lineup of CRN Channel Chiefs, comprised of outstanding executives who move our entire industry forward by cultivating exemplary partner programs and executing cutting-edge business strategy,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “They represent an extraordinary group of individuals who lead by example and serve as both invaluable advocates and innovators of the IT channel. We applaud their incredible strides and look forward to following their accomplishments in the coming year.”
“On behalf of Arcserve, I am truly honored to receive this award, said Mike Crest, CEO of Arcserve. “This recognition is a strong testament to our continued investment in channel enablement and product innovation that arms our partners with the market’s first multi-platform data protection solution for cloud, virtual and physical environments. We look forward to continuing to bring differentiated value that makes it easy for our partners to build and scale their data protection offerings.”
