Talena Recognized on 2017 Emerging Vendors List

SAN JOSE, Calif., July 18, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Talena, creator of the first and only machine learning-backed data management software for modern data platforms, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Talena to its 2017 Emerging Vendors: Big Data list. This list recognizes recently founded, up-and-coming technology suppliers who are shaping the future of the IT channel through unique technological innovations. In addition to celebrating these standout companies, the Emerging Vendors list serves as a valuable resource for solution providers looking to expand their portfolios with cutting-edge technology. This year, for the first time, the list is divided into seven categories: Cloud, Data Center, Security, Big Data, Networking/VoIP, Internet of Things and Storage.

Talena has the fastest backup and recovery platform on the market for modern databases such as Cassandra, Couchbase and Hadoop. It can recover petabyte-sized data sets up to 10 times faster than the next best alternative, reducing total downtime to minutes and hours, as opposed to days and weeks. Its distributed scale-out architecture enables users to back up any size data set quickly, both on-premise or in the Cloud. Talena’s smart storage architecture can save companies up to 80 percent on secondary storage costs.  

“This impressive group of technology supplier startups is already disrupting the status quo, aggressively creating and innovating to meet the ever-changing demands of the IT market,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. “CRN’s 2017 Emerging Vendors represent the next generation of IT change agents, producing a wide range of leading-edge products that solution providers should keep an eye on in the coming year and beyond.”

“We are thrilled to be named to CRN’s Emerging Vendors: Big Data list for the second consecutive year,” said Nitin Donde, CEO at Talena. “The number of mission-critical applications built on top of modern data platforms is continuing to grow and legacy solutions cannot support the scale of these larger data sets. We founded Talena to address critical data loss issues stemming from human errors and ransomware, and have focused our platform architecture to handle the requisite scale and performance these applications require.”
