Cohesity Recognized as CRN Emerging Vendor
Hyperconverged Secondary Storage Leader Receives Channel Industry Accolade
Santa Clara, CA. – July 21, 2016 Cohesity, the pioneer of hyperconverged secondary storage, today announced that it was named to the 2016 list of Emerging Vendors by CRN, a brand of The Channel Company. This annual list recognizes recently founded, up-and-coming technology suppliers who are shaping the future of the IT channel through unique technological innovations. In addition to celebrating these standout companies, the Emerging Vendors list also serves as a valuable resource for solution providers looking to expand their portfolios with cutting-edge technology.
Cohesity was selected as an Emerging Vendor by CRN for its innovative, industry-leading approach. The Cohesity DataPlatform has garnered acclaim from customers and industry analysts as the first solution to consolidate all secondary storage use cases, including backup, file services, test/dev, and analytics, onto an intelligent, unified platform with infinite scalability. High demand for the Cohesity DataPlatform demonstrates the clear need for cutting-edge solutions that address customers’ data center pain points with greater simplicity and lower costs.
In June, Cohesity announced dramatic growth in the year following its public launch, with revenue increases of more than 100 percent each quarter and a workforce that has tripled in size. Since launching earlier this year, Cohesity’s Revolution Partner Network has expanded its channel partner ecosystem by more than 50 percent.
“The select group of companies on our Emerging Vendors list have already made a name for themselves in their short time in the IT community, introducing leading-edge technologies with the potential to transform their segments of the IT market,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. “These tech suppliers are quickly making their mark on the industry and are the ones solution providers should watch in 2016.”
“We’re honored to receive this recognition from CRN as further validation for the momentum of the Cohesity DataPlatform, especially within the channel community,” said Mohit Aron, CEO and founder of Cohesity. “We look forward to enabling our channel partners to continue taking advantage of our intelligent, unified and efficient secondary storage solutions.”
