Lightbits Cloud Data Platform Wins “Overall Data Storage Solution of the Year” Award for Two Years Running

SAN JOSE, Calif., April 13, 2023 – Lightbits®, the innovation leader in simple, efficient, and agile data platform solutions for any cloud, today announced that it has been selected as the winner of the “Overall Data Storage Solution of the Year” award in the fourth annual Data Breakthrough Awards program, the second consecutive year it has won this prestigious accolade. The annual Data Breakthrough Awards is the premier awards program founded to recognize data technology innovators, leaders, and visionaries from around the world in a range of categories, including Data Analytics, Big Data, Business Intelligence, Data Storage, and many more. This year, the program received more than 2,000 nominations from across the globe.

The Lightbits Cloud Data Platform stands out as a leader because it delivers agility, flexibility, high performance, and predictable and lower costs enabling public cloud migration for analytic, transactional, and storage-intensive database workloads. The software-defined, disaggregated, and scalable architecture allows dynamic scaling of storage performance and capacity with consistently low latency and works within most orchestration environments such as Kubernetes, VMware, or OpenStack. It offers the ability to provision high-performance persistent volumes to applications, protecting data from failures, while at the same time offering the rich data services enterprise IT organizations desire. Lightbits is easy to use, plugging directly into Virtual Machines (VMs), and supports hybrid deployments offering the flexibility to port the software license between on-premises storage servers and storage-optimized Amazon Web Services (AWS) or Microsoft Azure VMs allowing customers to move to the cloud at their pace and on their terms.

Lightbits is growing in demand because it delivers high performance and low latency on the public cloud that’s equivalent to local NVMe, plus it offers rich data services included in the license. For enterprise organizations that want to migrate their storage-intensive workloads to the cloud they can do at their own pace and on their own terms, the Lightbits software license is portable between on-premises and the public cloud for hybrid deployments. And it offers lower cost-predictability and efficiency than native public cloud storage solutions offering a better cloud experience.

“To win this award for the second year in a row is a validation of Lightbits’ product leadership as a complete data platform for any cloud. We have enabled many Fortune 500 companies in Financial Services, Telco, eCommerce, and manufacturing to move their workloads to the cloud. Customers tell us they choose Lightbits for its simplicity, future-enabling architecture, cost-efficiency, and high performance. For any organization that thinks they can’t move storage-intensive workloads to the cloud, they need to take a look at Lightbits. We remove the bottlenecks associated with native storage on the public cloud so that IT can deliver services that are fast, resilient, and secure,” said Carol Platz, VP of Marketing at Lightbits.

Lightbits offers free trial licenses on the public cloud. For more information go to Get Started or send an email to
