SANTA CLARA, Calif., December 5, 2017 – Elastifile, the enterprise hybrid cloud data management company, announced today that it has been named to the 2017 Emerging Vendors list in both the Cloud and Storage categories by CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company. This list recognizes up-and-coming technology innovators that are shaping the future of the IT channel through unique technological solutions. In addition to celebrating these standout companies, the Emerging Vendors list serves as a valuable resource for solution providers looking to expand their portfolios with cutting-edge technology. This year, for the first time, the list is divided into seven categories: Cloud, Data Center, Security, Big Data, Networking/VoIP, Internet of Things and Storage.
Elastifile enables dynamic real-world hybrid cloud workflows by integrating on-premises and on-cloud environments within a unified, high-performance storage and data management platform. By leveraging the Elastifile Cloud File System with CloudConnect dynamic object tiering, enterprises can now manage both active and inactive data via cost-effective infrastructure that scales dynamically with the needs of their applications, both on-premises and natively in all major cloud environments. With this cross-cloud data fabric, Elastifile enables both service providers and HPC enterprises across a range of markets, including life sciences, financial services, life sciences, and oil & gas, to increase performance, reduce cost, and succeed with new business process agility. It is the ideal next step for hybrid cloud and infrastructure modernization, with elastic workload consolidation and production workflow mobility like cloud bursting with stateful containers.
“This impressive group of technology supplier startups is already disrupting the status quo, aggressively creating and innovating to meet the ever-changing demands of the IT market,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. “CRN’s 2017 Emerging Vendors represent the next generation of IT change agents, producing a wide range of leading-edge products that solution providers should keep an eye on in the coming year and beyond.”
“Being recognized as an Emerging Vendor by CRN for both the Cloud and Storage is certainly twice as nice, and it is a true validation of our disruptive strategy to deliver the cross-cloud data fabric” said Andy Fenselau, VP Marketing at Elastifile. “This recognition shows that Elastifile is not just a product for storage or cloud data management, but in fact a new category solution that crosses both segments to free your data from its underlying infrastructure.”
Elastifile is redefining the way data is stored and managed, enabling seamless deployment of private and hybrid cloud solutions. With enterprises and service providers looking to support both on-premises and cloud workflows across both active and inactive data workloads, Elastifile uniquely delivers this to application, analytics, and infrastructure teams as the single global namespace of a distributed file and object system. This elastic, scale-out, software-only BYOH (bring-your-own-hardware) solution provides all the advantages of public IaaS to the data center and uncompromised enterprise data services and SLAs in the cloud.
With nearly 100 employees, Elastifile is based in Santa Clara, California and Herzliya, Israel, with global Sales and Marketing offices in North America and Europe, and R&D in Israel. Elastifile was founded in 2013 and is backed by Battery Ventures, Lightspeed Venture Partners, and CE Ventures, plus seven strategic investors from the cloud, data center and storage industries including Dell Technologies Capital, Cisco Investments, and Western Digital Capital. Elastifile’s founders and leadership team includes a powerful mix of experience across enterprise storage, virtualization, applications, and flash to help transform its customers’ hybrid cloud workflows.
