The "Tech 10" lists are tough to build. Its not because of a lack of top-notch technology to highlight. The problem is the huge size of the markets covered by the "Tech 10" lists, making it hard to narrow down the field to 10 products.
The "Tech 10: Data Center" list is especially tough because of the wide range of technologies which together make up a data center, including storage, power equipment, DCIM software, portable data centers, cooling solutions, and more.
For the "Tech 10: Data Center" list, CRN decided this time to concentrate on the five technologies listed above, and look at two completely different solutions for each of them.
This isnt a "Best Of" or a "Best Seller" kind of list. Its more of a "Heres A Couple Examples Of" kind of list. And, with two vendors in five categories, that leaves dozens of others who would have been on it.
