Wasabi Technologies Recognized on the 2021 CRN Edge Computing 100 List

November 15, 2021

BOSTON, MA, November 15, 2021 — Wasabi Technologies, the hot cloud storage company, today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Wasabi to its 2021 Edge Computing 100 list.

With the rising importance of business intelligence and data analytics, the ability to quickly collect and process that data is becoming a key differentiator for businesses of all sizes. At the same time, the need to expand corporate networks to encompass larger numbers of remote and hybrid workers makes securing the edge even more critical. The second-annual CRN Edge Computing 100 list spotlights the vendors leading the way in providing channel partners with the technology needed to build next-generation, intelligent edge solutions that ultimately bring data collection and processing closer to users.

Wasabi Hot Cloud Storage has redefined the industry with a solution that provides unlimited scalability at 1/5th the cost of Amazon S3, with no fees for egress or API requests and requires no vendor lock-in. Businesses are able to securely and affordably store all of their data and access it the moment they need it. This flexibility and disruptively low cost is perfect for users in data-intensive industries with multiple distributed locations like healthcare networks, as well as organizations managing their remote workforces, to better manage their data and security across locations. Wasabi has also scaled its operations to bring storage regions closer to key markets for faster service delivery. Wasabi currently has seven storage regions across the world: Virginia (2 separate locations) Hillsboro, Oregon; Dallas, TX; Amsterdam, NL; Tokyo; and most recently Osaka, with plans to open more in the next 12 months.

“CRN’s 2021 Edge Computing 100 list returns this year to recognize the leaders bringing the technology required for channel partners to build unique edge solutions that empower businesses to work better and smarter,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “The contributions of these innovators continue to pave the way for the IT channel to deliver bold, progressive, and trusted offerings to its customers.”

“From the very beginning, Wasabi has been dedicated to empowering our partners with a high-performance, scalable, and affordable solution they can sell confidently,” said Laurie Mitchell, VP of Channel and International Marketing at Wasabi. “We meet our partners with solutions where they are and where they need to be, and this distinction from CRN validates the work we do day in and day out to drive our partners’ success at the edge and everywhere else.”

The 2021 Edge Computing 100 list will be featured in a special November issue of CRN Magazine and online at
