SAN JOSE, CA, May 23, 2023 – iXsystems®, the company behind TrueNAS Open Storage, today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named iXsystems in its annual Storage 100 list in the Software-Defined Storage category for the third year in a row. The Storage 100 recognizes industry-leading storage vendors that provide transformative, channel-friendly products, and services.
The Storage 100 list is a valuable resource for solution providers looking for vendors that can support them in a complex storage market with industry-leading portfolios in areas such as data protection, management and resilience, software-defined storage, and storage appliances. This year’s list represents the industry leaders in storage technology that can be used for on-premises or cloud deployments.
The companies selected for the Storage 100 have been chosen by CRN editors for their perseverance in pushing the boundaries of innovation through cutting-edge technology and strategic partnerships. iXsystems made the list for TrueNAS Open Storage, a compelling option for midsize companies because of its features, reliability, and cost-effectiveness.
