Quobyte Inc., a leading developer of modern storage system software, announced that CRN, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Quobyte to its 2019 list of Emerging Vendors in the Storage category. This annual list honors recently founded, up-and-coming technology suppliers that prioritize technological innovation and shape the IT channel’s future. It recognizes channel-focused companies across seven categories: Cloud, Data Center, Security, Big Data, Internet of Things (IoT), and Storage.
“CRN’s 2019 Emerging Vendors list recognizes new, rapidly growing vendors that are making significant IT channel contributions”
Quobyte was recognized by CRN for its Quobyte Data Center File System, which provides a massively scalable and fault-tolerant storage infrastructure. It decouples and abstracts commodity hardware to deliver low-latency and parallel throughput for the substantial requirements of cloud services and apps, the elasticity and agility to scale to thousands of servers, and to grow to hundreds of petabytes with little to no added administrative burden. With Quobyte, databases, scale-out applications, containers, even big data analytics can run on one single infrastructure.
“It’s an honor to be named among the select few companies chosen as part of CRN’s Emerging Vendors in Storage for 2019,” said Bjorn Kolbeck, Quobyte CEO. “Though we might be regarded as an up-and-coming vendor, there are actually more than 10 years of development behind the Quobyte Data Center File System, making it one of the more mature storage software products available today. Recognition of our success from leading industry publications, like CRN, further validates our approach to helping customers build a reliable, scalable and flexible software storage infrastructure.”
CRN’s Emerging Vendors list honors technology suppliers driving innovation across the IT channel. It also provides a valuable resource for solution providers looking to incorporate cutting-edge technology into their portfolios.
Emerging Vendors are vetted and selected by CRN’s editorial team. They provide state-of-the-art technology to help solution providers meet complex IT market demands, achieve bottom-line results, and deliver best-in-class offerings.
“CRN’s 2019 Emerging Vendors list recognizes new, rapidly growing vendors that are making significant IT channel contributions,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “It honors groundbreaking vendors that provide sophisticated technology to drive channel growth – and remain committed to ongoing innovation to shape the channel for years to come.”
