CRN award SimpliVity 2600.PNGHewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) SimpliVity 2600 hyperconverged solution has received CRN’s 2018 Product of the Year award in the data center infrastructure category! CRN selected the 2018 Tech Innovator Award winners from among 296 vendors in 35 categories. This year’s focus was on groundbreaking innovation. “As digital transformation only quickens its pace – and becomes nothing short of a necessity for many organizations – solution providers that can spot the next killer innovation are in greater demand than ever before….  And whether it’s in cloud, security, infrastructure or devices, the innovations you’ll find in this year's Tech Innovator Awards are true conversation starters.”
