Connected Data Named to 2015 CRN Emerging Vendors List

SANTA CLARA, Calif. – July 27, 2015Connected Data™ today announced it has been named to The Channel Company’s exclusive 2015 CRN® Emerging Vendors List. The annual listing features up-and-coming technology vendors that have introduced innovative new products, creating opportunities for channel partners in North America to create high-margin, cutting-edge solutions for their customers. The vendors recognized this year have demonstrated a commitment to developing new technologies to meet growing market demands.

Connected Data’s award-winning Transporter, private cloud file sync and share appliance, enables business organizations to deliver all the services expected from a public cloud service, together with a level of management control, data security, and pricing that public cloud services can’t match. Moreover, with the addition of its Network Storage Connector feature, Transporter now enables mid-to-enterprise class business organizations to transform their on-premise network-attached storage (NAS) systems into secure, private cloud file sharing solutions, with end-to-end syncing between mobile devices and corporate NAS.

The Connected Data Excelerate Partner Program fuels channel partner success by combining its pioneering Transporter appliance with an aggressive pricing model, generous SPIFFS, and an extensive array of sales and marketing resources. As a member of the Connected Data Excelerate Partner Program, VARs, VADs, System Integrators and Service Providers can deliver the cloud experience end users want, with the control, privacy and security corporate IT requires – all while building a solid high margin revenue stream.

“Solution providers continue to keep their finger on the pulse of emerging technology in order to stay ahead of customer needs. The exciting technology vendors recognized in this year’s Emerging Vendors List don’t disappoint—the innovative technologies they bring to the table provide channel partners with product options that will propel their success into the future,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. “We congratulate 2015’s Emerging Vendors for their outstanding efforts and for delivering cutting-edge technology solutions that will continue to evolve the IT channel.”

“Transporter private file sync and share appliances offer companies their own on-premises, 100% private DropBox-like environment, securely behind their own firewall. Users get the easy mobile device access to files and folders as well as collaboration tools they require, and IT departments have full control over who views the data and where the data is held, solving the increasing problem of uncontrolled use of public cloud services,” said Russ Johnson, COO, Connected Data. “Transporter solutions provide channel partners with a huge opportunity to cross sell differentiated technology that is complimentary to their existing vendor portfolio by connecting Transporter to existing network storage systems to create private cloud access to files, and remote site replication. Supported by our Excelerate Partner Program, resellers can quickly benefit from high margins, incremental sales from their existing accounts, and a significant recurring revenue stream.” He concluded, “We are delighted to have been recognized once again by one of the most highly respected and trusted voices in the channel community, CRN.”
