NEW YORK, NY, March 24, 2021 – CTERA, the edge-to-cloud file services leader, today announced that the 7.0 version of its Enterprise File Services Platform has been selected as the winner of the “Storage Innovation of the Year” award in the 2021 Data Breakthrough Awards.

The CTERA Enterprise File Services Platform allows enterprises to dramatically simplify the cost, scale, and complexity challenges of traditional Network Attached Storage (NAS) and file storage solutions in the new era of distributed and remote work IT. CTERA’s global file system technology connects core, branch, and WFH users over a single namespace and delivers HQ-grade data access experiences from any edge location or device. CTERA is trusted today by many of the world’s leading enterprise and government organizations.

The CTERA 7.0 release set a new bar for multi-cloud global file systems, offering the most feature-rich, fast, and secure platform in the industry. Platform enhancements included unparalleled edge-to-cloud synchronization speed, secure geo-segmentation, embedded antivirus, and built-in data discovery and migration from legacy file storage.

“We are seeing strong demand and increased interest in cloud-based file services as distributed organizations and teams grow exponentially,” said James Johnson, Managing Director, Data Breakthrough. “CTERA has trailblazed innovation in this space and the Company is well-positioned to serve as a leading force here, empowering companies to keep data close to users wherever they are and deliver a truly user-friendly experience.
