HotLink Recognized by CRN as a 2015 Emerging Vendor

Select List Features the Coolest Tech Startups Heating Up the IT Channel

Santa Clara, Calif.  –  JULY 22, 2015 – HotLink® Corporation, the market leader in transformation solutions for hybrid IT management, announced today it has been named to The Channel Company’s exclusive 2015 CRN® Emerging Vendors List. The annual list features up-and-coming technology vendors that have introduced innovative new products, creating opportunities for channel partners in North America to create high-margin, cutting-edge solutions for their customers. The vendors recognized this year have demonstrated a commitment to developing new technologies to meet growing market demands.

HotLink’s unique transformation technologies were engineered specifically for interoperability of disparate virtual infrastructure, both on- and off-premise. HotLink Hybrid Express is the only technology to natively extend on-premise VMware management infrastructure to multiple hypervisors and public clouds, so IT shops can consolidate administration, deployment and management of all their hybrid IT resources with their existing VMware vCenter and compatible tools, automation and workflows. HotLink DR Express is a dramatically simple VMware Ready plug-in for VMware vCenter that fully automates disaster recovery plus business continuity in Amazon Web Services (AWS).

“Solution providers continue to keep their finger on the pulse of emerging technology in order to stay ahead of customer needs. The exciting technology vendors recognized in this year’s Emerging Vendors List don’t disappoint—the innovative technologies they bring to the table provide channel partners with product options that will propel their success into the future,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. “We congratulate 2015’s Emerging Vendors for their outstanding efforts and for delivering cutting-edge technology solutions that will continue to evolve the IT channel.”

Oded Haner, general manager and CTO of HotLink, said, “The use of the public cloud for enterprise IT is on the rise and in the past year, HotLink has more than doubled its partner network to support this growth. HotLink has taken a unique and powerful approach to eliminating hybrid IT complexity, and this award underscores the value that we provide to both our partners and end-user customers.”

Companies included in CRN’s 2015 Emerging Vendors list were founded in 2009 or later and are actively working with channel partners in North America. The list, along with information about each vendor, will be published in CRN’s August 2015 issue and will be available online at
