The 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors honor is presented to companies based on their approach to creating innovative products, services or partner programs that have helped channel partners transform into true solution providers, ultimately helping customers take advantage of the ease of use, flexibility, scalability and savings that cloud computing offers.

Zetta.net is recognized for its SaaS-based cloud backup and DR solution with built-in WAN acceleration, designed to rapidly move large datasets over the Internet. Customers have achieved transfer speeds of up to 5TB in 24 hours. Additionally, as the service requires no appliance or other new hardware, users can easily deploy and manage their backups, scale infinitely as their data requirements increase, and avoid the potentially costly recovery delay of waiting for a replacement appliance after a disaster.

This year’s 100 Coolest Cloud Computing honorees are identified across five major categories including platforms, infrastructure, storage, security and software. This list is an effort to help solution providers navigate through the ambiguity of the cloud market to identify the vendors, products and services that can help elevate their cloud services offerings. Companies were chosen based on data and information gathered from solution provider nominations along with input from the CRN editorial team.

Zetta.net's solution easily scales to handle larger data volumes and more complex backup environments, while delivering ease of management. As a result, resellers and managed service providers (MSPs) can create a more profitable service and more effectively build a recurring revenue stream. The solution doesn't require a heavy administrative stack to support it on the backend, reducing the amount of resources and time needed to keep backups going – time which isn't always billable to clients.

“Widespread demand for cloud computing solutions is increasing across businesses of all shapes and sizes. As organizations become more willing to adopt cloud technology and services, experienced solution providers are in greater demand," said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “The 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors list enables solution providers to engage with companies who are poised to help them capitalize on these opportunities.”

"It is an honor to be recognized by CRN as one of the 100 coolest cloud vendors," said Art Ledbetter, Director of Channels, Zetta.net. "To be named by a leading channel publication as a top vendor in this space, is further validation that Zetta.net addresses the business requirement for an affordable and highly reliable enterprise-grade cloud backup and DR solution."

Coverage of the100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors will be featured in the February 2015 issue of CRN and online at www.CRN.com.
