Dremio Recognized as a Coolest Cloud Company by CRN®

SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dremio, the data lake engine company announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Dremio as one of its 100 Coolest Cloud Companies of 2020. This annual list honors the premier cloud technology suppliers in five key categories: infrastructure, platforms and development, security, storage, and software.


The CRN editorial team selects the 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Companies according to their originality and innovation in product development, the quality of their services and partner programs, and their success in helping their customers save money and maximize the impact of their cloud computing technology.

In addition to honoring outstanding technology suppliers, the 100 Coolest Cloud Companies list also enables solution providers to identify the most advanced cloud technology players — aiding them in selecting the companies that can best support their cloud service needs.

Dremio’s cloud data lake engine delivers lightning fast queries directly against data lake storage, making data more accessible and helping organizations with their business intelligence, data science, and data lake modernization initiatives. Based on Apache Arrow technology, Dremio eliminates the need to copy and move data from data lake storage to proprietary data warehouses or create cubes, aggregation tables or extracts.

“The IT channel relies on cloud services as the foundation for building modern, transformational solutions,” said Bob Skelley, CEO, The Channel Company. “CRN’s annual list of 100 Coolest Cloud Companies seeks to honor the top cloud providers, whose mission and actions support innovation in cloud-based technologies. Our team congratulates these honorees and thanks them for their commitment to leading positive change in cloud technology."

“Cloud data lake storage, like ADLS or S3, has become the defacto place where data is landing and usage is exploding as a result. But organizations haven’t been able to query that data directly, forcing them to do a lot of expensive and time consuming work to make queries performant – ETL, data warehouses, data marts, etc.” said Jason Nadeau, vice president of marketing, Dremio. “Dremio eliminates such data movement and associated workarounds with live, interactive query speeds directly on data lake storage, and we are specifically optimized for cloud data lake environments. Being named to the CRN's list of 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors validates our strategy and vision for the future as our customers modernize their data architectures to take advantage of the cloud.”

The new 100 Coolest Cloud Companies list will be featured in the February 2020 issue of CRN and online at www.crn.com/cloud100.
