Zetta Honored as Coolest Cloud Vendor by CRN

Company Recognized for Offering a 100% Cloud-Based Backup and Disaster Recovery Solution that Delivers Fast Recovery without the Need for Costly Extra Hardware

Sunnyvale, CA announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Zetta to its 2016 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors list. This annual lineup recognizes the most innovative and effective cloud technology suppliers in each of five categories: infrastructure, platforms and development, security, storage and software. Zetta was additionally named to the 20 Coolest Cloud Storage Vendors of the 2016 Cloud 100 list.

The 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors are selected by the CRN editorial team for their creativity and innovation in product development, the quality of their services and partner programs, and their demonstrated ability to help customers benefit from the ease of use, flexibility, scalability and budgetary savings that cloud computing offers.

Zetta was recognized as a company that provides innovative direct-to-cloud backup and disaster recovery solutions that automate and simplify daily backup processes. The company’s solutions also allow businesses to get data back quickly and reliably, from anywhere, when recovery is required, without the need for an appliance. Zetta backup and recovery solutions are designed to support large datasets up to 200TB, enabling the rapid transfer of data over the internet for faster backup and recovery with enterprise-grade security, simplified administration and flexible customization.

“Cloud-based solutions have become an indispensable and fast-growing part of today’s IT infrastructure. The demand for solution providers who can deliver these technologies and services is now higher than ever,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “CRN’s annual list of 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors helps solution providers find and engage with the suppliers who can best support them, either during the critical transition to the cloud or in the improvement and expansion of their existing cloud offerings.”

“At Zetta we have consistently been at the innovation edge of the cloud-enabled datacenter and that leadership has given us the unique distinction of being the only company to deliver ultra-high-performance backup and disaster recovery that is 100% in the cloud,” said Mike Grossman, CEO of Zetta. “This gives the managed service provider the cloud-based data protection today’s enterprises, both small and large, need with attractive margins and the simplified scalability that makes it easy to grow their business. We are pleased to be recognized by CRN as one of the Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors of 2016 and to once again be named as one of the 20 Coolest Cloud Storage Vendors.”
