Value for Money Distinguishes CTERA, TwinStrata and Nasuni as Champions in the Cloud Backup Market According to Info-Tech Research Group

London, ON, July 28, 2011 - A recent Cloud Backup Vendor Landscape report published by Info-Tech Research Group, ranked CTERA, TwinStrata and Nasuni as Champions in the Cloud Backup market. All three vendors were also recognized for providing good value for money.

“The future of the Cloud Backup space looks bright. The market is young and it’s on a massive growth curve,” said Derek Silva, Research Analyst for Info-Tech Research Group. “However, there is already a mature set of basic features to watch for, and vendors are providing much more value beyond those basic features.”

Info-Tech Research Group recommends CTERA’s solution for small to mid-sized businesses and branch offices. The vendor offers consumer-type sharing features at a reasonable price point and is a trusted cloud provider. CTERA received the highest value score in the Vendor Landscape and is ranked as a Champion.

TwinStrata placed just below CTERA on the Value Score Index in the report. Info-Tech recommends their solution to mid-sized businesses and large enterprises that need to replace their NAS/SAN, especially those with highly virtualized environments.

Nasuni also ranked as a Champion in the report and is recommended as a replacement for file servers only. With their strong focus on unstructured data, native file formats and their low price, they are a very suitable solution for this role.
