WESTBOROUGH, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- SimpliVity Corporation, the provider of OmniCubeTM, the world's only globally federated hyperconverged infrastructure system, today announced it has been awarded the CRN 5-Star Partner rating in recognition of both its attractive solution set and its commitment to its channel partners' success. This follows on the heels of news last month that CRN named Rich Shea, SimpliVity's Vice President of Sales and Services, a CRN Channel Chief for 2013, further validating SimpliVity's position as a preeminent vendor for the channel.

"Broadleaf is pleased to congratulate SimpliVity on its 5-Star Partner rating from CRN. As a solutions provider that focuses on data storage, protection, virtualization, availability and recoverability, Broadleaf constantly evaluates trends that will shape IT and finds the vendors that will lead those trends. We have partnered with SimpliVity to deliver OmniCube, a superior hyperconverged infrastructure solution optimized for the virtualized environment, to our customers," commented Jim Tenner, President of Broadleaf Services.

The CRN Partner Program Guide is the definitive listing of manufacturers and software publishers that provide products to the IT Channel. The 5-Star Partner Program rating recognizes an elite subset of Partner Program Guide vendors who give solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs. "The 5-Star award is reserved for vendors that understand a successful partnership does not rely solely on the technology. By offering their partners tools, education, and regular updates, vendors on this list go above and beyond traditional support to ensure a mutually beneficial partnership," said Kelley Damore, Senior Vice President and Editorial Director for UBM Tech Channel's CRN.

"Our partners recognize the immense opportunity that OmniCube represents as data center customers seek the next generation of infrastructure for their virtual environment. Our partner program is designed to foster their success in finding opportunities and successfully delivering OmniCube to the market. SimpliVity is very pleased to be recognized by CRN for its commitment to its partners," said Rich Shea, VP of Sales and Services for SimpliVity.
