Petach Tikva, Palo Alto, Calif. (April 1, 2013) – CTERA Networks, the leader in cloud storage enablement, today announced it was named one of the Top 20 Coolest Cloud Storage Vendors for 2013 by leading IT channel publication, CRN Magazine.
CRN highlighted CTERA’s Cloud Storage Enablement suite, which comprises a cloud-side service delivery platform, on-premises cloud storage gateways, and agents for servers, laptops and mobile – all with a unified management interface. CTERA’s solution includes rich, built-in hybrid backup features, local and cloud-based file sharing capabilities, robust NAS and no-compromise, enterprise-grade security.
“We’re thrilled to be recognized by CRN as one of the coolest cloud storage vendors in the market,” said Liran Eshel, CEO of CTERA. “We are committed to our channel partners’ success, and the growth of our channel business in North America demonstrates more than anything that our technology and go-to-market approach are attractive to both end-customers as well as partners.”
CTERA addresses the storage and data protection needs of enterprises and SMBs using all-in-one appliances that provide comprehensive “whole office” backup and network storage, while seamlessly connecting to cloud storage for optional off-site replication. This hybrid architecture delivers fast local restores while providing customers with off-site recovery in case of local disasters, and allows VARs and MSPs to easily launch cloud-based services off public or private cloud infrastructure.
With its 100 percent channel sales model, CTERA sells its solutions only through its network of value added resellers and MSP partners.
