Cloudian wins Cloud Company of the Year at the 2018 UK Storage Awards
Enterprise object storage systems specialist Cloudian has announced that it has been awarded Cloud Company of the Year 2018 at the UK Storage Awards. The win, which builds on its win as Enterprise Hybrid Storage Product of the Year at the 2017 ceremony, comes as Cloudian achieves record-breaking year-on-year success and growth across EMEA.
The Storage Awards mark one of the biggest award nights in the storage industry, recognising IT’s most innovative leaders and rewarding those that make significant contributions to the industry. Attended by global companies of all sizes, the ceremony took place at The Tower Hotel in London. Peers, partners and clients took part in a round of voting to select the deserving winners – with a record number of votes cast. This year, Cloudian walked away as Cloud Company of the Year 2018, awarded for its innovative contributions to the cloud-computing world.
Throughout 2018, Cloudian has achieved a number of milestones, including its acquisition of Italian company Infinity Storage, a pioneer in software-defined file storage. It has also doubled its engineering staff at that location; secured a $125 million funding commitment; opened a new EMEA headquarters; and gained 28 new EMEA customers in six months. The accolade of “Cloud Company of the Year 2018” reinforces the company’s success and efforts in addressing the growing demand across EMEA for scale-out storage solutions.
“It’s such an honour to be recipients of the Cloud Company of the Year 2018 award at the Storage Awards, recognising the entire company for its hard work and dedication over the past year,” said Jon Toor, chief marketing officer at Cloudian. “Our team works tirelessly in driving our products, HyperStore and HyperFile, and that’s why it’s becoming the chosen product for organisations across the globe as their principle storage solution. We are thankful to both the organisers at the Storage Awards and everyone who took the time to vote for us.”
