LONG BEACH, Calif., March 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Epson America, a leading provider of exceptionally performing business solutions, announced today that it has been named one of CRN's 2014 Channel Champions. For nearly 25 years, CRN's annual Channel Champions awards rank vendors across the areas of technical satisfaction, support satisfaction and financial benefits, based on the results of a series of surveys conducted with top solution providers. The winners were honored during a special awards ceremony at the XChange Solution Provider conference in Los Angeles on March 4.
The CRN Channel Champions survey is the largest and broadest-based technology integrator market study in the industry, measuring IT solution providers' overall perceptions of vendor products and services across 31 technology categories. In addition to defining which vendors are leading the way in partner satisfaction, the scores—including year-to-year comparisons—also provide a snapshot of the competitive dynamics in each category.
Available through the Epson ImageWaySM Partner Program, the award-winning Epson® WorkForce® Pro C Series was developed specifically to provide VARs and commercial channel partners and their customers with cost-effective printing solutions that deliver superior quality output and meet customer technology needs. The workgroup color printers deliver up to 50 percent lower printing costs and up to 70 percent less power consumption when compared to color laser printers and offer a three-year limited warranty. The high performance, cost efficiency and quality imaging performance delivered by the WorkForce Pro C Series printers, as well as remote printing capabilities with Epson Connect™ mobile printing solutions, warranted IT solution providers to vote Epson as one of CRN's Channel Champions in the Workgroup Color Printer category and Financial Satisfaction sub-category.

"Epson continues to provide superior printing solutions to meet the needs of networked workgroups within small-to-medium-sized businesses, and we are honored to be recognized as one of CRN's Channel Champions in multiple categories," said Monika Dees, product manager, Business Imaging, for Epson America. "Epson is committed to deliver industry-leading business solutions and support to partners and resellers so they can be confident they are offering their customers high quality and robust solutions."
"For more than 30 years, CRN has been an advocate for the IT channel community, producing invaluable content and resources to help solution providers and vendors navigate the IT channel market effectively," said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. "CRN's Channel Champions project serves as an industry benchmark, highlighting the vendors that understand and best meet the needs of today's solution providers, despite a changing and dynamic IT landscape. This list defines the 'best of the best' among the vendor community today, and we congratulate the winners on this well-deserved honor."

After more than five years of DevOps, definitions are evolving, boundaries are expanding, ‘unicorns’ are no longer rare, enterprises are on board, and pundits are moving on. Can we now look at an evolution of DevOps? Should we? Is the foundation of DevOps ‘done’, or is there still too much left to do? What is mature, and what is still missing? What does the next 5 years of DevOps look like? In this Power Panel at DevOps Summit, moderated by DevOps Summit Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists l...

Virtualization over the past years has become a key strategy for IT to acquire multi-tenancy, increase utilization, develop elasticity and improve security. And virtual machines (VMs) are quickly becoming a main vehicle for developing and deploying applications. The introduction of containers seems to be bringing another and perhaps overlapped solution for achieving the same above-mentioned benefits. Are a container and a virtual machine fundamentally the same or different? And how? Is one techn...

As with most new architectures, this dream takes a lot of work to become a reality. Even when you do get your application componentized enough and packaged properly, there are still challenges for DevOps teams to making the shift to continuous delivery and achieving that reduction in cost ...

Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning. Boundary (now part of BMC) launched a new public-facing multi-tenant high resolution monitoring service on Amazon AWS two years ago, facing challenges and learning best practices in the early days of the new service.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.

DevOps tends to focus on the relationship between Dev and Ops, putting an emphasis on the ops and application infrastructure. But that’s changing with microservices architectures. In her session at DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks, will focus on how microservices are changing the underlying architectures needed to scale, secure and deliver applications based on highly distributed (micro) services and why that means an expansion into “the network” for DevOps.
