And for the 1st time EMC was named the company of the year in the SMB NetWork Storage category, which is certainly a testament to the EMC VNXe storage appliance introduced in January.
Maybe you haven’t heard about the CRN Annual Report Card (ARC). CRN is a dedicated channel publication, looking after the interest of resellers, distributors and IT solution providers. The report card is intended to benchmark the relationship between technology vendors and channel partners.
