RELDATA Inc., the innovation leader in unified block and file storage solutions over iSCSI, announced today that Everything Channel’s CRN has named its RELDATA unified storage solution one of the “100 Coolest Cloud Computing Products.” The list was based on nominations from solution providers rating technology, channel influence, effectiveness and visibility along with business and sales impact. The final selections were made by a panel of Everything Channel editors. This recognition is a strong validation of the company’s superior unified storage solutions and strong channel ecosystem that is delivering advanced products in one the fastest growing segments of the IT market.
According to market research firm IDC, converged IP SAN-based storage is growing 30 percent annually and will become a $3 billion market by 2011. With unprecedented growth in server deployment and the adoption of cloud computing architectures to power Internet-based applications, today’s IT organizations are facing the mounting need to store and secure critical data long-term for compliance requirements, while assuring data remains easy to access and manage.
RELDATA meets these business requirements with comprehensive unified storage solutions that cost-effectively enable mid-size and distributed enterprises to consolidate, virtualize and protect business data across multi-vendor platforms. Unlike proprietary silo-based block and file-based products, the RELDATA unified storage solution has been built from the ground up leveraging the RELDATA Unified Storage Engine (USE™) platform. RELDATA USE is a software-centric and open hardware architecture that allows companies to improve the mobility and sharing of data between resources and users in a fluid and cost-effective manner and rapidly enhance disaster recovery and data availability service levels, while significantly reducing storage administration and replication licensing costs.
“RELDATA is honored to be recognized as one of the Top 100 Cloud Computing Vendors," said Steven Murphy, CEO of RELDATA. “We are dedicated to providing our partners and customers with the most robust unified storage solutions that will capitalize on this market opportunity and provide customers with the greatest value from their storage technology investments that allow them to consolidate, virtualize and protect data storage while significantly reducing administration and licensing costs.”
Winners were announced online and are featured in the January 25 issue of CRN.
