CRN Cites StoneFly’s Innovative, Easy-to-Use IP SAN Technology as Reason for Prestigious Channel Award Selection SAN DIEGO – June 22, 2007 – StoneFly, Inc., a leading supplier of integrated IP storage area network (SAN) systems and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Dynamic Network Factory, Inc. (DNF), today announced that it has been selected by CRN, part of CMP’s family of Channel Solutions, as a CRN Emerging Tech vendor. In selecting StoneFly, CRN recognized the company’s simple and affordable IP SAN-based systems, which provide the highest levels of storage optimization and disaster recovery protection. CRN’s Emerging Tech list captures companies that are delivering high margins for solution providers with innovative and easy-to-use technology that undercuts industry giants. After pioneering the IP SAN market in 2003, StoneFly established its MVP Channel Program to support channel partners in every facet of industry, ranging from large-scale Fortune 500 companies to government and education markets as well as small-to-medium-sized businesses (SMBs). In the past six months, StoneFly has gained traction in regions across the globe, building alliances with new partners in Europe, South America, Asia and Canada. “It is an honor to be named a CRN Emerging Vendor by a publication that is held in such high regard within the channel”, said Ken Friend, channel director for StoneFly, Inc. “StoneFly’s MVP Channel Program supports our solution providers with dedicated account representatives as well as comprehensive training and support for their wide-ranging storage projects, from virtualization and business continuity to e-mail archiving, backup and integration.” According to Heather Clancy, vice president and editor of CRN, “Successful solution providers are always looking for new and innovative partners, and the CRN Emerging Tech list provides a way for them to discover a large number of potential new partners who offer a wide range of emerging technologies.” Vendors who make the CRN Emerging Tech list must have an established solution provider program and formal guidelines for recruiting channel partners. They must demonstrate that its direct sales mix is trending down as evidenced by the company’s revenue history, a channel positive or channel neutral strategy for internal sales compensation, and not be a dominant market share player. Final selection to the Emerging Technology list was made at the discretion of the CRN editorial team after a review of the submitted information and conversations with current or targeted partners.
