CAMPBELL, Calif., Feb. 15, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Panzura, the leader in enterprise hybrid cloud NAS, today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Panzura to its 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors of 2018 list and its 20 Coolest Cloud Storage Vendors list. This annual lineup recognizes the most innovative cloud technology suppliers in each of five categories: infrastructure, platforms and development, security, storage and software.

The 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors are selected by the CRN editorial team for their creativity and innovation in product development, the quality of their services and partner programs, and their demonstrated ability to help customers benefit from the ease of use, flexibility, scalability, and budgetary savings that cloud computing offers.

In addition to recognizing cloud technology suppliers for outstanding products and services, 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors serves as a valuable guide for solution providers trying to navigate the cloud market. The list aids prospective channel partners in identifying the vendors that can best help them improve or expand their cloud services.

Panzura was specifically recognized by CRN as one of the 20 Coolest Cloud Storage Vendors for 2018. With Panzura Freedom™, its hybrid cloud NAS software platform, enterprises gain the economics, scalability, and durability of the cloud while delivering data center performance for NFS, SMB, and cloud native workloads. Panzura CloudFS™, which underpins Panzura Freedom, is the first enterprise file system purpose-built for the cloud. It enables enterprises to replace legacy NAS – saving up to 70 percent over their prior solution – and non-disruptively move file-based workloads to the cloud without rewrite. With integrated backup, disaster recovery, deduplication, compression, snapshots, WAN optimization, and military-grade encryption, Panzura Freedom provides a 90 percent reduction in current file/NAS infrastructure.

"Cloud computing is now an integral part of doing business, and demand for solution providers who can deliver sophisticated, cloud-based technologies and services is at an all-time high," said Bob Skelley, CEO, The Channel Company. "CRN's annual list of 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors helps channel partners meet this unprecedented demand by identifying top vendors who can help them grow and evolve their cloud businesses. We congratulate all the companies on our 2018 list for establishing themselves as leaders in this essential technology area."

"We are thrilled to be listed as one of CRN's 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors as well as one of the 20 Coolest Cloud Storage Vendors of 2018," said Patrick Harr, CEO at Panzura. "We have seen record adoption of Panzura Freedom – our industry leading hybrid cloud NAS software – as customers non-disruptively move their high performance NFS, SMB and Object workloads to the cloud without rewrite, while reducing their overall costs by up to 70 percent and file storage infrastructure in the data center by 90 percent. In the fourth quarter of 2017, our channel bookings were up 360 percent over the same quarter in the prior year, further underscoring the value proposition that Panzura solutions represent to our partners."  

The new 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors list will be featured in the February 2018 issue of CRN and online at www.crn.com/cloud100.
