CTERA Networks Named “Coolest Cloud Storage Vendor” by CRN


CTERA recognized for its innovative MSP-oriented cloud storage solutions

Petach Tikva, Israel and Palo Alto, Calif. (February 9, 2010) – CTERA Networks, an innovator in cloud storage and data protection, announced that Everything Channel’s CRN has named CTERA one of the “20 Coolest Cloud Storage Vendors.”

CTERA’s Cloud Attached Storage is a hybrid local storage and cloud storage solution that combines LAN-speed network-attached storage (NAS) with reliable and secure cloud storage services.

Using the small form-factor CTERA CloudPlug and the larger CTERA C200 users can easily access files, synchronize data and schedule backups from anywhere via a simple Web interface, eliminating the need for costly and often unreliable tape backup. CTERA simplifies data protection, enabling users to focus on running their business.

With CTERA Portal, MSPs and ISPs can venture into the world of cloud services with their own private branded managed storage offerings. The Portal can manage anywhere from ten to tens of thousands of customer sites, and allows service providers to define and provision their own service plans. CTERA Portal supports a variety of public and private cloud back-end options, allowing partners to leverage their existing datacenter investment.

“It’s an honor for CTERA to be recognized by CRN, the leading technology channel publication, as it reflects our focus on helping our channel partners deliver easy to use cloud storage services to their customers,” said CTERA’s CEO Liran Eshel. “We designed our Cloud Attached Storage technology from the ground up to meet the operational requirements of service providers, resulting in a highly flexible, scalable and low total-cost-of-ownership solution that creates an opportunity for new profitable, value-added services.”

The list was based on nominations from Solution Providers rating technology, channel influence, effectiveness and visibility along with business and sales impact. The final selections were made by a panel of Everything Channel Editors.

Winners were announced online at and are featured in the January 25 issue of CRN.
