SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - October 13, 2010) - Nimble Storage, developer of the first converged storage and backup solution, today announced it has been selected by Everything Channel as a CRN Hot Emerging Technology Vendor for the month of October. Nimble Storage was chosen due to its 100 percent channel business model and ability to deliver the industry's first converged iSCSI storage, backup and disaster recovery solution. Each month CRN profiles 10 new vendors that are looking to shake up the industry in various technology segments, from security to cloud computing, from software to hardware.

In addition, the CRN Test Center reviewed the company's CS-Series and rated the product "strongly recommended" due to its fault tolerance, performance and innovative software. The reviewer said, "Nimble Storage has built what IT administrators might call the Holy Grail of high-performance data storage: a single box that delivers primary and secondary iSCSI storage along with off-site backup that does not involve tape, optical media or even backup time."

"Our channel partners are finding unprecedented interest in Nimble's solution, and CRN's review is further validation of our unique value proposition," said Mike Munoz, vice president of sales for Nimble Storage. "CRN is a trusted resource for partners and we truly appreciate their recognition."
