The annual CRN Tech Innovator Awards honor standout hardware, software or services that have helped to move the IT industry forward. In compiling the 2017 Tech Innovator Award list, CRN editors evaluated 216 products across 32 technology categories using several criteria, including technological advancements, uniqueness of features and potential to help solution providers solve end users’ IT challenges.

“The vendors and products on CRN’s 2017 Tech Innovator list represent some of the most creative and forward-thinking achievements yet seen in the IT channel,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. “We are honored to celebrate their ingenuity and the growth they are driving across the industry, from increased worker productivity and sales to expanded solutions for complex problems and trailblazing innovation.” 

“The channel turns to DH2i’s DxEnterprise software as its deployment provides immediate and drastic management simplification in an industry that has been exponentially increasing in complexity.  And, while it functions as an incredible tool for enabling easy-to-manage HA and DR, DxEnterprise has the potential to unlock many other key benefits as well – including hundreds of thousands of dollars in savings and a massive reduction in management overhead,” said Connor Cox, Director of Business Development, DH2i, and recently named CRN Channel Chief.  “We are honored to have been recognized by one of the most highly respected voices in the channel community, CRN, and believe that it is a reflection on DxEnterprise’s innovative features and functionality—as well as the superior outcomes it enables for our channel partners. DxEnterprise gives our partners the ability to rapidly grow current revenue streams, while unlocking other new, previously inaccessible and highly profitable opportunities.” 

DxEnterprise is multi-platform Smart Availability software for Microsoft Windows Server and Linux Server databases and stateful Docker containers. It can be used to manage both native application instances—Microsoft SQL Server is the most common use-case—as well as Docker containers. DxEnterprise uses a logical, host-based abstraction called a Virtual Host to decouple instances and containers from the underlying infrastructure. This enables unparalleled portability and agility. Primary benefits that DxEnterprise offers include drastically simplified management and modernization, nearest-to-zero unplanned AND planned downtime, 30-60% cost savings and an 8-15x reduction in OSes that need to be licensed and managed.

The Tech Innovator Awards will be featured in the December issue of CRN and can be viewed online at
