San Mateo, CA – March 5, 2020 – LucidLink, an innovator in cloud file services, announced today that its Filespaces™ cloud-native system has won the 2019 Storage Trailblazer Award presented by Tech Trailblazers, a global awards program focused on enterprise technology startups. Tech Trailblazers recognizes and rewards technological and commercial innovation and entrepreneurial excellence across 19 categories from big data and blockchain to high-performance computing, cloud and storage solutions, IoT, and more. In addition to placing first in the storage category, Filespaces was as a runner up for the Cloud Trailblazer Award, and company co-founder and CTO, George Dochev, was a runner up for the Male CxO Trailblazer Award. These wins come on the heels of LucidLink’s taking gold in TechTarget’s 2019 Products of the Year contest, further solidifying the impact and value LucidLink has brought to market since its founding in 2016.
“The genesis of what LucidLink is today grew from the desire to solve business issues that we had experienced firsthand,” said George Dochev, co-founder and CTO of LucidLink. “Traditional file sync and share technologies are cumbersome and ineffective when collaborating remotely on large data sets. We aimed to solve this problem by dramatically boosting performance in edge and cloud environments while leveraging the economics, scalability, and durability of cloud storage. We are thrilled to see our unique approach being recognized for the value it brings to all types of industries; from traditional use cases like NAS replacement to novel workflows, Filespaces helps organizations speed file access, ensure better security, and save time and money.”
LucidLink addresses the problem of distance and latency in cloud environments by reducing the traffic between applications and remote storage. With Filespaces, data is delivered efficiently, and streamed on-demand with the highest level of security, using any object storage provider.
Using LucidLink, organizations can replace most HPC workloads in their existing NAS environment with Filespaces running on object storage and any software can easily utilize it without a connector or refactoring.
Filespaces is ideal for distributed workflows, remote teams that collaborate across data sets, and companies that need to provide secure and remote access to dense data assets. Beyond typical long-term retention and native S3 cloud applications, LucidLink use cases deploy cloud storage for many advantages, such as direct back up to the cloud and immediate data recovery, running production workloads on object storage, and providing on-demand, concurrent access to video footage or computer-aided design files.
