Axcient CEO Justin Moore Named to Annual 2015 CRN Top 100 List
Exclusive List Recognizes the IT Industry’s Foremost Channel Leaders including CEO of Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service Company
Mountain View, Calif., August 4, 2015 – Axcient, the leader in cloud-based Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS), announced that Justin Moore has been named to The Channel Company’s prestigious 2015 CRN® Top 100 list as a prominent innovator in technology. CRN’s annual Top 100 list recognizes the efforts of agile decision-makers who play an integral role in evolving the way the channel does business. These 100 leaders, hand-picked by the CRN editorial staff, represent the pre-eminent innovators, influencers, disrupters and channel sales leaders in the IT channel today.
Axcient revolutionizes the way companies are able to protect their data through a hybrid approach of public and private cloud. Through a single disaster recovery-as-a-service cloud platform, Axcient makes it possible to restore data and applications with one simple click – changing the way companies ensure that they stay operationally available 24/7.
“What is so thrilling about this industry is how the fundamentals of cloud and disaster recovery are creating new conversations surrounding data protection,” says Justin Moore, CEO of Axcient. “For instance, the utility element of the cloud is what is making it so highly attractive to customers. The fact that someone can access a pool of resources on demand is pretty groundbreaking for any IT infrastructure, and that’s what Axcient is able to do with our platform.”
In addition to changing the way disaster recovery works, Justin Moore also changed the way businesses work in the channel via Axcient’s most recent program “Software as a Service: Front Loaded Option” (SaaS:FLO,). A first of it’s kind program, SaaS:FLO makes it easier and more advantageous for channel partners to implement Axcient’s powerfully simple Business Recovery Cloud platform. SaaS:FLO dramatically departs from how Software as a Service (SaaS) vendors typically compensate channel partners, as well as how SaaS solutions are sold and deployed. The new program is unique in that Axcient offers to compensate channel partners up front for the sale, delivery and support of its Business Recovery Cloud solution. This makes it easier and more lucrative for VARs to grow their business in the SaaS model.
The CRN Top 100 list is based on feedback gathered from technology solution providers throughout the year by CRN editors, with rankings reflecting executives’ channel influence, effectiveness and visibility, along with their business and sales impact on the IT channel. Among the criteria considered are the channel sales volume of the companies they represent, as well as those vendors’ channel investment and resources, channel advocacy, and performance in research projects conducted by The Channel Company’s CRN Intelligence research arm, including its esteemed Annual Report Card and Channel Champions reports.
“The CRN Top 100 list recognizes an elite group of executives that demonstrate leadership skills and innovation that propel the IT channel forward,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. “Each individual named on this exclusive list has overcome business challenges and capitalized on opportunities while demonstrating a passion and dedication to the IT channel. This list is comprised of industry veterans with years of proven leadership as well as newcomers taking the channel by storm. All deserve recognition for their outstanding efforts in evolving the channel forward into new market opportunities.”
The CRN Top 100 honorees will be featured in the August issue of CRN, the top news source for solution providers and the IT channel, and will be available online at www.crn.com.
