CRN® Recognizes Wasabi Technologies on the 2021 Emerging Vendors List

BOSTON, MA, July 19, 2021 — Wasabi Technologies, the hot cloud storage company, today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Wasabi to its 2021 Emerging Vendors list in the Cloud category. This annual list honors new and up-and-coming technology vendors that have proven their commitment to innovation and growth within the larger IT channel. Organizations featured on the list—all six years old or younger—are selected across eight different categories: cloud, data center, security, big data, mobility, Internet of Things (IoT), storage, and networking/unified communications.

Since its inception, Wasabi has become the innovative go-to cloud storage solution across a variety of industries thanks to its “hot cloud storage,” which allows customers to keep all the data they need to fuel their businesses and access it at any time without complicated pricing tiers or fees for egress or API requests. This industry-leading performance and pricing has enabled Wasabi to make its partner program a centerpiece of the business. To date, Wasabi has over 6,000 solution partners and 350 technology partners. The channel program continues to grow exponentially per month.

“Wasabi set out to redefine cloud storage with an entirely new approach to pricing and performance that allows organizations to focus on innovation and growth, rather than the complexity of where their data is stored and how to access it,” said Laurie Mitchell, Vice President, Partner and International Marketing at Wasabi. “We are proud to be recognized by CRN as a forward-thinking and high-growth vendor in cloud storage driving concrete value for our customers and channel partners alike.”

With a commanding grasp of the IT industry’s unique needs, technology vendors featured on the CRN 2021 Emerging Vendors list allow solution providers to tackle complex IT market challenges, increase bottom-line revenue across the board, and deliver customer-facing solutions that ensure the IT channel’s ongoing success well into the future.

“The CRN 2021 Emerging Vendors list honors forward-thinking technology suppliers that are redefining IT channel success by focusing on innovative products that help customers overcome the complex and ever-changing IT demands,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “Solution providers in search of the latest innovative technologies can depend on the Emerging Vendors list as a trusted resource.”

The CRN 2021 Emerging Vendors list will be featured in the August 2021 issue of CRN Magazine and online at www.CRN.com/EmergingVendors.
