SOMERSET, N.J.  (March 22, 2016) — Raritan, a brand of Legrand and a leading provider of intelligent data center management and rack power distribution solutions, announced today it was named to CRN’s 2016 Data Center 100 list and a Top 20 Infrastructure Provider.  The annual CRN list recognizes companies that excel at powering, supporting and protecting the complex and demanding data centers on which today’s businesses rely.

For the sixth consecutive year, CRN’s editorial staff selected Raritan to the Data Center 100 list based on the company’s track record of delivering innovative data center management solutions that help improve energy efficiency, productivity, and resource utilization.

Raritan’s parent company, Legrand, also was mentioned by the CRN editors who noted Legrand’s expanded data center solution offerings and its move to work with Google Nest and other Internet of Things providers.

“Raritan is honored to be recognized as a leading Infrastructure Provider on the CRN Data Center 100 list,” said Ashley Fox, Director of Channels at Raritan.  “We are committed to helping our channel partners succeed, and in developing innovative solutions that improve how data centers are managed so that customers can focus on growing their businesses.”

CRN editors select companies for the Data Center 100 list on the basis of multiple criteria, including each company’s overall impact on the market, its influence on the channel as a whole, and the types of technology and services it makes available to its partners.  In addition to recognizing technology suppliers for outstanding products and services, the Data Center 100 serves as a valuable guide for solution providers looking for best-in-class vendors.

“Building and maintaining an efficient, reliable data center is a monumental task, requiring a wide range of technologies, including a combination of hardware and software that provides just the right fit,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company.  “Vendors who can deliver this breadth and depth of materials and services are an invaluable resource to today’s solution providers, and we are pleased to present the best of those companies in the 2016 Data Center 100 list.”
