CRN Recognizes Wasabi Technologies as a Cloud 100 Company for 2022

February 1, 2022

BOSTON, MA, February 1, 2022 — Wasabi Technologies, the hot cloud storage company, today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Wasabi to its annual Cloud 100 list. This list honors the 100 Coolest Cloud Companies for 2022 across five key categories: infrastructure, monitoring and management, storage, software, and security.

CRN’s Cloud 100 list spotlights technology suppliers for their commitment to channel partners as well as their demonstrated innovation in cloud-based technology development. This list is the trusted resource for solution providers looking for technology vendors best positioned to support their cloud product and services needs.

Wasabi hot cloud storage has redefined the industry with a solution that provides instantly accessible data with unlimited scalability at 1/5th the cost of Amazon S3, allowing customers to keep all the data they need to fuel their businesses and access it at any time with no complicated pricing tiers or fees for egress or API requests. This flexibility and disruptive pricing model makes Wasabi a seamless addition to partner portfolios, allowing channel partners worldwide to seize the incredible market potential as the world’s data moves to the cloud.

Wasabi has built a thriving technology alliance ecosystem that allows channels to earn margins and sell “better-together” solutions with Wasabi as part of backup, ransomware protection, archiving, video surveillance storage and more. Channel partners are also supported with specialized activation plans and activities, campaigns-in-a-box, field events, and educational resources to drive concrete value for partners. Wasabi has also scaled its operations to bring storage regions closer to key markets for faster service delivery and to further accelerate the growth of its global partner network. Wasabi currently has nine storage regions across the world: Virginia (2 separate locations) Hillsboro, Oregon; Dallas, TX; Amsterdam, NL; Tokyo; Osaka; London; and most recently Paris, with plans to open more in the next 12 months.

“From the very beginning, Wasabi understood the importance of the channel to our business and made it a priority to not only deliver a product our partners can fully trust but to ensure their sales success with a true partnership mentality,” said David Friend, co-founder and CEO of Wasabi Technologies.” “This massive migration to the cloud is a once-in-a-generation opportunity, and we’re here to help put our channel partners into the best position possible to capitalize.”

"In today’s remote-facing enterprise environment, cloud services have become the critical component needed to build comprehensive and secure IT solutions,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO, The Channel Company. “The companies selected for this year’s Cloud 100 list have shown time and again that they support partners in the ever-evolving cloud computing business with state-of-the-art products and services. Our team commends those on this year’s list and looks forward to watching them drive positive change in the cloud domain throughout the year."
