The New Generation Of Data Center Leaders

Data Centers of the past were pretty straightforward: servers, data storage, networking hubs and routers. But data centers today are highly distributed, with workloads running on-premises and in public and private clouds. Some components of an IT system may be virtualized, software-defined or running in containers. And data centers increasingly link up with networks of mobile and IoT devices.

All this increases data center complexity, and IT managers are turning to their technology vendors and solution providers for help. While many big vendors offer products to help resolve data center challenges, a wave of startups is developing leading-edge technology for building and managing next-generation data centers.

As part of CRN's 2019 Emerging Vendors coverage, here are 11 hot data center companies, all founded in 2013 or later, that solution providers should be aware of.
