"Solution providers are always on the hunt for the next big technology trend so that they can bring new solutions to their customers before they even know they need them. These vendors are on the forefront of IT innovation and are offering products and services that channel partners can use to stay ahead of the competition," said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company, publisher of CRN. "We congratulate 2014's Emerging Vendors for creating the next wave of technology that will drive the IT industry forward and for opening the door to new, unique solutions from the IT channel."
Cloud DR benefits include no upfront capital spending or long term capacity planning requirements and usage-based pricing. Additional benefits of cloud DR include geographic proximity control and the ability to easily and economically extend protection to apps that otherwise are protected by tape backup or unprotected due to the cost of traditional solutions. Cloud DR for physical and virtualized applications can reduce costs by as much as 75% while increasing agility.
"CloudVelox continues to get recognized for its innovation and momentum," said Rajeev Chawla, chief executive officer of CloudVelox. "It is our goal to enable the cloud partner channel to provide a highly automated, low cost cloud DR deployment for their customers."
