Rick Whiting

CRN staff compiled the top partner-friendly products that launched or were significantly updated over the last year. Now it’s up to solution providers to choose the winners.

Storage – SMB:

Storing and maintaining data is no less important for small and mid-size businesses than it is for enterprise organizations. SMB storage systems are expected to be easy to operate – if not self-managing – and cost-effective. Demand for personal data storage devices such as external hard drives and SSDs is being driven by the move to remote work as well as more employees working with audio, video and graphics-rick content that requires more storage capacity.
