Las Vegas, Nevada, September 28, 2012 -- XIOSS, an IT data Relevant Products/Services storage solutions provider, today announced that it has been named by UBM Channel as #1 on the 2012 CRN Fast Growth 100 list. The annual list features the fastest-growing solution providers in the technology industry based on two years' growth of net sales from calendar year 2009 to calendar year 2011. XIOSS grew 3266.67% by providing solutions to solve complex data storage issues for the Fortune 500, including two Fortune 10 companies.

> Fast Growth 100 companies are considered some of the best and brightest of the channel's companies that have managed to fight strong economic headwinds to achieve impressive revenue growth over the past two years.

"Posting revenue growth of any sort is something to be proud of in the shadows of a recession," said Kelley Damore, VP, Editorial Director for UBM Channel. "But the companies on CRN's Fast Growth 100 list have experienced phenomenal increases in revenue over the past two years. Getting there is a combination of hard work and an ability to truly understand customers' needs. These companies represent the strength of the channel today and hope for a stronger tomorrow. We congratulate XIOSS for continuing to grow and succeed in spite of recent global economic turmoil."

The world creates 2.5 quintillion bytes of data per day. Large enterprises' data storage needs continue to grow at an exponential rate and so do the related challenges they face. Data is structured, unstructured, needs to be backed up, secured, de-duplicated and accurate all while staying easily accessible to users deploying various types of technology across disparate locations. Managing data storage for cost, performance, integrity, and scalability is the next mountain in Information Technology management and planning. At a time when demands on the data center Relevant Products/Services are exploding faster than IT budgets, XIOSS has created a vendor agnostic methodology that helps data enterprises cut storage costs by up to 50% while at the same time improving management, security Relevant Products/Services, access and over all data integrity.

"XIOSS has achieved astronomical growth by hiring the most experienced storage architects, understanding the complex and unique issues affecting our customers and providing them with the best of breed solution regardless of vendor," says Scott Robinson, President of XIOSS. "Our unique perspective and vast expertise related to data storage has made us an invaluable asset and trusted advisor to our customers. By applying this expertise, XIOSS is able to help customers lower costs while streamlining data storage management."

Earlier this year XIOSS was recertified as a WBENC and WOSB company. XIOSS was also named a Next Generation Solutions Provider and CEO, Susie Galyardt, was named among the Most Powerful Women of the Channel both awards by CRN Magazine. "We are honored to receive recognition by CRN for all three awards and continue to commit to our customers a level of excellence they have come to expect," says Galyardt.
