Austin, Texas, February 29, 2016 – VDIworks, a provider of Virtual Desktop Solutions, announced today that CRN, a brand of The Channel Company, has named VDIworks to its 2016 Data Center 100 list. This annual lineup recognizes technology suppliers who 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 everything from data backup tools to virtual data center solutions to cloud hosting services.

The Virtual Desktop Platform (VDP) from VDIworks was recently made available through the CenturyLink Cloud and allows customers to have a flexible, secure and business-ready virtual desktop solution. VDP is a comprehensive VDI management suite that has been architected to reduce complexity and costs typically associated with VDI. It allows CenturyLink Cloud customers to set up a hosted virtual desktop infrastructure within a matter of minutes.

“We’re very excited to be named on CRN’s Data Center 100 2016 list and be a part of of 20 companies who excel in the virtualization space,” said Saad Hussain, President & CEO, VDIworks Inc. “Providing Desktops-as-a-Service (DaaS) from one of the leading Cloud providers has been a key part of our strategy as we look forward to enabling Companies to migrate to the cloud throughout the year.”

“Building and maintaining an efficient, reliable data center is a monumental task, requiring a wide range of technologies, including a combination of hardware and software that provides just the right fit,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “Vendors who can deliver this breadth and depth of materials and services are an invaluable resource to today’s solution providers, and we are pleased to present the best of those companies in the 2016 Data Center 100 list.”
