CTERA Takes the Gold in 2021 American Business Awards

New York City – May 5, 2021 – CTERA, the edge-to-cloud file services leader, was named the winner of a Gold Stevie® Award in the Cloud Storage & Backup Solution category in the 19th Annual American Business Awards®. The award recognizes CTERA’s breakthrough global file system technology that enables users to enjoy HQ-grade data access experiences from any edge location or device.

Organizations are struggling to close IT gaps as they shift from the traditional workplace to the post-pandemic hybrid environment. Corporate NAS and file servers were not meant to be accessed over home networks, and security and performance issues have hindered enterprises as they seek to extend corporate data to the edge.

By unifying local file services with multi-cloud object storage, CTERA’s global file system technology allows enterprises to modernize every aspect of their distributed file services delivery – including remote offices, work-from-home laptops, VDI, and mobile – without compromising performance or security.

CTERA 7.0, released in October 2020, set a new bar for multi-cloud global file systems, offering the fastest, most secure, and most feature-rich platform in the industry.

“CTERA is democratizing enterprise file services,” said Liran Eshel, co- founder and CEO, CTERA. “By extending the corporate file system to the far edge of the network, we enable complete choice of infrastructure and allow IT to serve users wherever they are while reducing TCO by up to 80 percent. We’re honored that the American Business Awards recognize the value of the innovation in CTERA 7.0.”

More than 250 professionals worldwide participated in the judging process to select this year’s Stevie Award winners. The judges’ comments about CTERA are noteworthy:

  • “I was impressed by CTERA in how they leverage advanced technology to accelerate deployment of cloud services and eliminate the costs associated with file servers, backup servers and tape drives.”
  • “CTERA 7.0 delivers the fastest, most secure, and complete global file system in the industry.”
  • “Having a globally distributed file system is a huge benefit for employee productivity in any company.”

The Gold Stevie Award continues CTERA’s remarkable run of industry recognition in 2021. In March CTERA won Storage Innovation of the Year in the Data Breakthrough Awards, again for innovations in CTERA 7.0. The company also was named Best in Global File Services in Storage Newsletter’s Best Storage Products of 2021 and earned a placement in CRN’s 2021 Partner Program Guide. In April CTERA was recognized as a TOP 5 solution for enterprise NAS consolidation by DCIG.

The American Business Awards are the U.S.A.’s premier business awards program. Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word meaning “crowned,” the awards will be virtually presented to winners during a live event on Wednesday, June 30.
