SANTA CLARA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Elastifile,
a pioneer of enterprise-grade, scalable file storage for the public
cloud, today announced that it has become an SAP PartnerEdge® Open
Ecosystem – Build partner, further strengthening the synergistic bonds

cloud backup/archival, bursting to cloud for additional compute, or
executing a wholesale “lift and shift” to cloud, Elastifile’s solutions
allow customers to reap the benefits of cloud integration, at their own
pace. In addition, by delivering file storage via standard protocols
(e.g. NFS), with no need for OS kernel modifications or client-side
