Boston, MA, November 11, 2020Wasabi Technologies, the hot cloud storage company, is pleased to announce that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named them a finalist in the 2020 CRN Tech Innovator Awards. Wasabi was recognized for its Reserved Capacity Storage solution in the Cloud Storage category.

This annual award program honors innovative vendors in the IT channel across 49 technology categories, in key areas ranging from cloud to security to storage to networking. CRN editors assessed hundreds of vendor products along multiple criteria, including uniqueness, key capabilities, technological competency, and addressing customer needs.

Wasabi Reserved Capacity Storage (RCS) is a new cloud storage service offering that makes selling cloud storage simple and profitable for resellers and buying cloud storage a natural addition to on-premises storage for end customers. RCS helps businesses save money by delivering a fixed, prepaid service period of 1, 3 or 5 years for storage capacity while reducing storage costs with added discounts for term and capacity. Wasabi RCS offers predictability with no fees for egress or API requests.

“CRN’s Tech Innovator Awards celebrate technology vendors that empower end-users and promote business growth for solution providers with pioneering, purpose-built solutions,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “Congratulations to each of this year’s CRN Tech Innovator Award finalists! We are honored to recognize these best-in-class vendors that are powering IT transformation and innovation.”

“It is an honor to be recognized for this award alongside such respected industry leaders. Wasabi Reserved Capacity Storage is a solution that fits the needs of businesses looking to pay one bill for a set time with a set storage capacity.  If more space is needed we make it easy to add on”, said Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, Marty Falaro. “We’re laser-focused on doing one thing really, really well — cloud storage — and RCS is another way our channel partners can make more money and help their customers embrace the cloud in a way that is incredibly simple and cost-effective.”
