International Cloud Computing Awards Program Cements Panzura as De Facto Standard in Global Cloud File System Technologies

SAN JOSE, Calif.—January 28, 2021—Panzura has been declared the winner of the Best Hybrid Cloud Solution this week in the international Cloud Computing Awards program, The Cloud Awards. The award confirms Panzura’s status as the de facto standard for global cloud file system technologies.

“Winning the international Cloud Awards is undeniable confirmation that Panzura has the best hybrid cloud technology out there,” said Jill Stelfox, CEO at Panzura. “We knew from the very beginning when we acquired the company back in May, and subsequently brought in a new management team that has reimagined the organization, that Panzura’s technology is second to none. Since then, we’ve reshaped the competitive landscape, disrupted expectations and are poised for the best year ever. This award says it all.”

The fastest cloud file system available, the Panzura platform allows users to work together as if they were in the same room. It transforms cloud storage into a high-performance enterprise file system by giving distributed teams instantaneous file access to a single, authoritative data source. Military-grade security and the most comprehensive cloud management dashboard in the industry make it easy to search, audit, monitor and analyze an entire global cloud network at once.

Head of Operations for the Cloud Awards, James Williams, said, “Panzura is a deserving winner of the 2020-21 Cloud Awards. Every year, we find ourselves reporting the winners of the Cloud Awards, in simple awe at the scalability and agility of cloud-based solutions. Previous winners have risen superbly to the evolving challenges organizations must face in our increasingly unrecognizable modern world.”

Hundreds of organizations entered the Cloud Awards, with entries coming from across the globe, covering the Americas, Australia, Europe and the Middle East. The full shortlist, which includes IBM Aspera, Commvault, and VMWare can be found at the Cloud Awards website. The Cloud Awards will return with a new Cloud Computing program in fall 2021 to continue its recognition of excellence in cloud computing.
