Panzura Honored as Coolest Cloud Vendor by CRN

CAMPBELL, CA–(Marketwired - Feb 11, 2016) - Panzura, leading the charge in removing the barrier to the cloud, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Panzura to its 2016 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors list. This annual lineup recognizes the most innovative and effective cloud technology suppliers in each of five categories: infrastructure, platforms and development, security, storage and software.

The 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors are selected by the CRN editorial team for their creativity and innovation in product development, the quality of their services and partner programs, and their demonstrated ability to help customers benefit from the ease of use, flexibility, scalability and budgetary savings that cloud computing offers.

In addition to recognizing cloud technology suppliers for outstanding products and services, 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors also serves as a valuable guide for solution providers trying to navigate the cloud market. The list aids prospective channel partners in identifying the vendors that can best help them improve or expand their cloud service offerings.

Panzura’s technology makes the cloud seamless for enterprise users, allowing compute and cloud storage to appear like it’s a part of the corporate datacenter by solving networking, security, storage, and authentication issues. Panzura enables customers worldwide to significantly increase productivity and business agility as well as to transform the economics of IT by consolidating both networking and storage infrastructure into the cloud – public or private. This is extremely compelling to the partner community as they strive to make the transition from being traditional application software or infrastructure resellers to cloud partners.

“Cloud-based solutions have become an indispensable and fast-growing part of today’s IT infrastructure. The demand for solution providers who can deliver these technologies and services is now higher than ever,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “CRN’s annual list of 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors helps solution providers find and engage with the suppliers who can best support them, either during the critical transition to the cloud or in the improvement and expansion of their existing cloud offerings.”

“We are thrilled to have been selected as one of CRN’s Coolest Cloud Vendors,” said Barry Phillips, CMO at Panzura. “This honor serves as a testament to the technological innovation we deliver coupled with our robust partner program. Our solution enables traditional resellers to provide the best of both worlds to their customers – the scale and economics of cloud storage with the performance and features of enterprise storage.”

The new 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors list will be featured in the February 2016 issue of CRN and online at www.crn.com/cloud100.
