CRN® Recognizes Wasabi Technologies on the 2020 Emerging Vendors List

July 20, 2020

Boston, July 20, 2020 — Wasabi Technologies, the hot cloud storage company, today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Wasabi to its 2020 Emerging Vendors list in the Cloud category. This annual list honors rising technology suppliers that exhibit an innovative approach to shaping the future of the channel through dedication to best-in-class technology.

Recognizing channel-focused organizations across eight categories – including Cloud, Data Center, Security, Big Data, Internet of Things (IoT), Storage and Networking/Unified Communications – CRN selects pioneer providers in the IT channel that drive business results and support the growth of partners through innovative offerings. This list serves as a valuable resource for solution providers in search of the latest technologies.

“A little more than a year after launching our channel program, Wasabi is now working with nearly 3,000 partners across the globe, providing them with unmatched support and profit-driving cloud storage offerings, ” said Marty Falaro, Wasabi SVP Global Sales and Alliances. “Recognition on the CRN 2020 Emerging Vendors list is a testament to the dedication of our employees and our expanding partner network as we break the industry’s storage model by delivering a simple, yet powerful cloud solution.”

Wasabi Reserved Capacity Storage (RCS) makes buying cloud storage a natural addition to on-premises storage, elevating the idea of cloud storage consumption. RCS enables businesses to save money by committing to a period of 1, 3 or 5 year plans for storage capacity and reducing storage costs even more with pay-as-you-go prices. Wasabi eliminates the complexity and unnecessary costs of other cloud storage services by offering a single tier of high-performance storage that's 1/5th the price of Amazon S3. Putting partners in control, Wasabi drives success with solutions built to battle the challenges of the IT channel with tools like a partner API that can integrate into a solution provider’s own provisioning and billing system.

“CRN’s 2020 Emerging Vendors list recognizes vendors that are revolutionizing the IT channel with innovative solutions that meet the complex demands of our industry,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “It honors inspirational new vendors that are driving channel growth with state-of-the-art technologies that will continue to shape the channel into the future.”

The 2020 Emerging Vendors list will be featured in the August 2020 issue of CRN Magazine and online.
