MAYNARD, MA--(Marketwired - May 30, 2013) -  Stratus Technologies today announced it has been named to CRN's 2013 Virtualization 50 list. The annual listing highlights the companies with the most innovative virtualization solutions available today.

Selected by CRN editors, the 2013 CRN Virtualization 50 recognizes the vendors that are addressing an emerging market need for the channel and offering the most leading edge solutions. The list is designed to help solution providers identify and evaluate virtualization products and programs to help grow their business.

"Solution providers have plenty of options when it comes to virtualization technology. However, understanding the diversity of vendors and their solution nuances can be incredibly daunting," said Robert Faletra, CEO, UBM Tech Channel. "CRN's annual list aims to cut down the noise and highlight the most innovative technology vendors that are not only delivering powerful virtualization technology, but also helping VARs capitalize on the market opportunity for such solutions."

"Stratus is proud to be recognized in CRN's Virtualization 50 for our innovation in virtualization technology," said Susan Bailey, Vice President Americas Sales, Stratus Technologies. "We have been delivering solutions that ensure the highest availability of business critical applications to our customers and channel partners for over three decades. Our virtualization solutions in particular are a home run for partners. We provide the lowest 'first-cost' option with decreased complexity and dramatically increased availability to organizations of all types."

Stratus' solutions are designed to deliver continuous availability -- making them the ideal choice for "always on" virtualization and cloud deployments. Unlike other virtualization solutions that are designed to recover after downtime has occurred, Stratus' solutions, coupled with its award-winning remote monitoring support, are engineered to prevent outages and data loss before they happen. Channel partners can quickly and easily leverage these capabilities to create, host and deliver cost-effective virtualization solutions for their customers with purpose-built protection against downtime and data loss.

The 2013 Virtualization 50 list is featured in the May issue of CRN Magazine and will be featured online at
