Cloudian Recognized for Object Storage Innovation by CRN’s 2017 Emerging Vendors

San Mateo, CA – Nov. 27, 2017 – Cloudian, the innovation leader in enterprise object storage systems, announced today that CRN, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Cloudian to its 2017 Emerging Vendors list in the Storage category for the innovations of its HyperStore object storage platform and the channel opportunities it offers.

“To be recognized on CRN’s 2017 Emerging Vendors list is a huge testament to Cloudian’s continued dedication to its channel partners and to innovation, which has helped position object storage as an enterprise necessity,” said Jon Toor, chief marketing officer at Cloudian. “It’s well established that data-storage capacity requirements in numerous industries have been growing exponentially over time. Consequently, organizations and their channel partners are looking for increasingly innovative data-storage solutions to meet their rapidly growing demands. Cloudian’s inclusion on CRN’s esteemed Emerging Vendors list validates that the company continually and relentlessly develops cutting-edge object storage technology that keeps its partners competitive and profitable.”

CRN’s Emerging Vendors list recognizes recently founded, up-and-coming technology suppliers that are shaping the future of the IT channel through unique technological innovations. In addition to celebrating standout companies, the Emerging Vendors list serves as a valuable resource for solution providers looking to expand their portfolios with cutting-edge technology. This year, for the first time, the list is divided into seven categories: Cloud, Data Center, Security, Big Data, Networking/VoIP, Internet of Things and Storage.

The combination of more-frequent archive access and increasing capacity requirements has resulted in major hurdles for content owners who are trying to stay within budget. It has also driven new demand for archive technologies that can keep pace with this rapid increase.

HyperStore fulfills that market need with an on-premises object-storage solution, providing businesses with multi-tenanted and multi-data-center hybrid cloud storage. The object-storage platform enables enterprises and channel partners to build cost-effective scale-out storage solutions, including data management for disaster recovery and backup, media archive, compliance and data analysis through one simple-to-manage interface.

“This impressive group of technology supplier startups is already disrupting the status quo, aggressively creating and innovating to meet the ever-changing demands of the IT market,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. “CRN’s 2017 Emerging Vendors represent the next generation of IT change agents, producing a wide range of leading-edge products that solution providers should keep an eye on in the coming year and beyond.”
