International Cloud Computing Awards Program Announces Shortlist
CAMPBELL, Calif.—December 17, 2020—Panzura has been declared a finalist this week in the international Cloud Computing Awards program, The Cloud Awards. Since 2011, The Cloud Awards has sought to promote and celebrate excellence and innovation in cloud computing. Entries are accepted throughout the globe and across multiple industry sectors.
Categories for the 2020-21 Cloud Awards include “Cloud Project of the Year,” “Security Innovation of the Year,” and “Best Cloud DR/Business Continuity Solution.” Panzura has been shortlisted in the category Best Hybrid Cloud Solution.
Jill Stelfox, CEO at Panzura, said, “To be recognized as a finalist is not only an honor, but clear recognition of the innovation and excellence we strive to achieve using leading hybrid cloud technologies.”
Head of Operations for the Cloud Awards, James Williams, said, “Panzura employs cloud technologies to deliver outstanding results—and is a deserving finalist in the 2020-21 Cloud Awards program.
“This year has been one unlike any other, posing uniquely non-trivial challenges across every sector of industry. As we have seen across so many of this year’s awards entries, the cloud has been pivotal in increasing organizational efficiency to meet demands both anticipated and unforeseen.
“From call centers to online shopping carts, cloud technologies have been the grease that keeps the global wheel of industry turning. They have been at the center of considerable behavioral change and new, innovative ways of working.
“The Cloud Awards team have the near-impossible task of marking the exceptional from the capable, and we can look forward to the final winners being announced in 2021 – hopefully, a year less marked by such global disruption.
“For any organizations wishing to take part in next year’s awards, the Cloud Awards will return in 2021-22. Our separate software awards program, the SaaS Awards, is accepting entries from now up until the end of May deadline.”
Hundreds of organizations entered, with entries coming from across the globe, covering the Americas, Australia, Europe and the Middle East. You can view the full shortlist here.
Final winners will be announced on Thursday 28 January 2021.
The Cloud Awards will return with a new Cloud Computing program in late 2021 to continue its recognition of excellence in cloud computing. The Software as a Service Awards program is currently accepting entries for its Spring 2021 program at https://www.cloud-awards.com/software-as-a-service-awards/
