Vendors selected for the Cool Vendor report are innovative, impactful and intriguing

Santa Clara, CA, May 8, 18 – CloudLanes, a leading provider of cloud data platform, today announced that it has been included in the list of “Cool Vendors” in the Cool Vendors in Storage Technologiesi report by Gartner, Inc.

“We believe the Cool Vendor report by Gartner is a further recognition of our mission to help companies accelerate their data migration to the cloud in a secure and compliant manner at high speed, and enabling them to transform their data once in the cloud,” said Asif Moinuddin, CEO of CloudLanes. “This helps customers get their secondary data off premises or from their data centers to the cloud, and reduce their storage costs significantly.” He added “This is not just about moving old and aged secondary data to go to the cloud to retire or die – its about using cloud as the primary tier for all secondary data”.

CloudLanes’ Cloud Data Platform industry’s first secondary storage platform built over public clouds with a hybrid cloud approach. With built in integrations to many of the leading PaaS components including Media Services, Cognitive Services, Hadoop, Data Lake, and CloudLanes’ own data verification service; CloudLanes is an ideal platform for transformation with built in governance and chain of custody.

“Customers are asking for more than cloud based tiering solutions for their secondary storage needs. With customers investing in bigger pipes to the cloud, it is often times more scalable, performant and secure to have all of the secondary data in the cloud itself protecting on-premise primary workloads. The CloudLanes platform can expose data to applications and PaaS services on other clouds, while enduring data guardianship of the primary copy in the cloud,” said Vijay Ramaswamy, co-founder and VP of Products & Marketing.
