SANTA CLARA, Calif., May 31, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Elastifile, the enterprise hybrid cloud data management company, today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Elastifile to its 2017 list of Emerging Vendors in the Cloud category. This annual list recognizes recently founded, up-and-coming technology suppliers who are shaping the future of the IT channel through unique technological innovations. In addition to celebrating these 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.
Elastifile was selected for its cloud-scale, software-only, flash-native data management solution which delivers hyperscale efficiency to enterprises and cloud service providers. The Elastifile Cloud File System, a core component of Elastifile's software solution, frees data from traditional storage silos by delivering consistent performance across a single global namespace spanning any on-premises sites and clouds. Elastifile CloudConnect integrates a unique data transfer and object tiering capability for file-level check-in and check-out to dynamically manage active and inactive data.
"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."
"This recognition is truly an honor, as cloud service providers and other channel sales organizations often face challenging requirements for high performance and shared access across geographically dispersed enterprises and workflows," said Amir Aharoni, CEO and co-founder of Elastifile. "Elastifile partners are finding innovative ways to leverage our cross-cloud data fabric to deliver breakthrough solutions natively in-cloud and on-prem, such as stateful containers, high-performance analytics, and the "lift and shift" of traditional enterprise applications to the cloud."
The Emerging Vendors Cloud and Data Center lists will be featured in the June 2017 issue of CRN and online at www.crn.com/emergingvendors.
