WekaIO Recognized by CRN as Emerging Cloud Vendor for 2017
Barbara Murphy. May 22, 2017
The cloud has quickly become a dominant channel for IT services and we are really pleased to be recognized by CRN as an emerging cloud vendor that is changing the parallel file system landscape. As a cloud native storage solution, WekaIO Matrix is ideal for IT organizations looking to leverage public or private cloud for high performance compute workloads (HPC).
The quote from Robert Faltera sums up what this award means.“This award recognizes technology supplier startups that are disrupting the status quo, aggressively creating and innovating to meet the ever-changing demands of the IT market.” Until now, running high performance file services in the cloud has been a pipe-dream, but that all changed with WekaIO’s cloud native software. The award recognizes the innovative technology that we have built, but more importantly it recognizes our commitment to the channel.
The IT channel is the glue that brings together commodity hardware, innovative software, enterprise expertise and professional services to deliver on the promise of software defined storage. We would like to thank our partner NexGen, a New York based reseller providing innovative solutions to bridge public and private cloud, chose WekaIO as a software solution to overcome the performance and scalability limitations associated with legacy NAS. NextGen and WekaIO are working together to bring complete solutions to enterprise IT, creating a single infrastructure with limitless performance and scalability that unlocks the true potential of the cloud for our customers.
