Compass Datacenters Named Top Data Center Partner for Reseller Industry in CRN’s “Data Center 100”

Compass Recognized in the “Designers and Builders” Section of CRN Magazine’s Annual List of
Data Center Innovators and Leaders

Dallas – March 24, 2014 – Compass Datacenters has been named one of the top data center partners for IT resellers by CRN, the respected publication that is the leading voice of the IT reseller industry in North America. CRN’s 2014 “Data Center 100” ranks Compass Datacenters as one of the leading Designers and Builders that can help IT resellers ensure that client’s data center projects are successful. The article accompanying the list refers to these Designers and Builders as “often the unsung heroes of the data center, [who] are essential to getting data center projects started and making sure they are ready for move-in as expected.” Companies included in the Data Center 100 were selected by the editorial staff of CRN for their “combination of innovation, market share, market presence, buzz, technology capabilities and channel capabilities.”

“CRN is the leading voice for the IT reseller industry and it is an honor to be recognized on this list of data center experts whose vision, expertise and track record make them trusted partners for resellers and their clients,” said Chris Crosby, CEO of Compass Datacenters. “Compass Datacenters is an emerging leader in the data center industry because our unique design for corporate data centers enables companies to have a dedicated, disaster-resistant data center facility in any geography. They get the features they want in the location they want, with a design that is efficient, Tier III-certified and LEED Gold Certified—and very affordable. This is a dramatic change from the previously limited choices companies had of either building a custom facility at an exorbitant price tag or being forced to locate their data center in a multi-tenant facility in one of the handful of major markets. Thank you to CRN for recognizing how innovative our design is and the potential it has to change how companies approach their data center projects.”

As stated by CRN Senior Editor Joseph F Kovar in the February 18, 2014 article that accompanies the list, “The data center business is facing a massive wave of change, with consolidation, cost control, converged infrastructure and the cloud all pushing businesses to look at new ways to build the facilities, infrastructure and services needed to serve both internal and external customers…. In such a fast-paced environment, finding the right experts to help with building and operating data centers is crucial to success. The Data Center 100 list is one place to start. Here, solution providers can find a cross-section of the industry with some of the top suppliers represented.”
