IT Channel Again Honors Panzura’s Hybrid Multi-Cloud Data Management Prowess and Innovation

SAN JOSE, Calif.—April 11, 2022Panzura has again this year been named by CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, to its annual Storage 100 list in the Software-defined Storage category. The Storage 100 list honors best-in-class storage vendors that provide innovative products and services to the IT channel. 

CRN’s Storage 100 list is selected by a panel of CRN editors and recognizes vendors across software-defined storage, data protection, data management, and storage components. This year’s list represents the industry leaders of storage technology that can be used for traditional on-premises or cloud deployments.

The vendors recognized on the 2022 Storage 100 list were selected because of their demonstrated commitment to developing cutting-edge technology and building strategic partnerships. The list itself is a valuable resource for IT solution providers looking to find vendors that can support them in a complex storage market.

“The economics and efficiencies of the cloud, and the power of cloud services, are crucial in the modern enterprise. We are once again honored that CRN has recognized Panzura CloudFS and the seamless storage experience it delivers across all clouds,” said Brian Brogan, vice president of global channel sales at Panzura. “Alongside our partners in the IT channel, we continue to drive positive change in the enterprise, and in the entire hybrid multi-cloud domain, with data management solutions that solve the toughest challenges of today’s business.”

Panzura CloudFS replaces legacy storage with a single, unified global file system that works across any cloud, on-premises, or hybrid IT configuration. Consolidating unstructured data storage, archive, backup, and disaster recovery in the cloud, Panzura CloudFS typically reduces an organization’s overall storage footprint by more than 70%.

The cloud-native global file system integrates with almost all public and private cloud object storage platforms, making it easy for the modern enterprise to replace legacy storage with a fit-for-purpose solution to swiftly and efficiently store, move, retrieve, and share unstructured data regardless of where files or users are located. It also offers immutable data resilience with the highest levels of protection and data recovery against ransomware and other malware threats.

“CRN’s Storage 100 list celebrates the vendors that bring innovative technology to the IT channel at a time when the importance and prevalence of data has never been greater, regardless of company size,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “We are honored to recognize their contributions as the leading players in storage technology for 2022.”
