SANTA CLARA, Calif., March 1, 2018Datera, Inc., a leading provider of data services platform software for traditional and cloud-native applications, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Datera to its 2018 Data Center 100 list. This annual list recognizes technology suppliers that excel at powering, supporting and protecting the complex and demanding data centers on which today’s businesses rely.

CRN editors select companies for the Data Center 100 list on the basis of multiple criteria, including each company’s overall impact on the market, its influence on the channel as a whole, and the types of technology and services it makes available to its partners.

In addition to recognizing technology suppliers for outstanding products and services, the Data Center 100 serves as a valuable guide for solution providers looking for best-in-class vendors providing data center infrastructure, data center management tools, software-defined data center technology and data center services.

Datera is the first software-defined, self-driving data infrastructure designed specifically for today’s modern hybrid IT environments, enabling the replacement of rigid, infrastructure-centric enterprise storage with highly-elastic, application-centric data services that orchestrate data at scale for any application in the data center, private or hybrid cloud.
