Cloud Services Company Using Funds to Support Sales Growth, New Platform Enhancements and Development

HOUSTON (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — SoftNAS, a leading cloud data platform and #1 Cloud NAS for business-critical applications, today announced a major investment from Decathlon Capital Partners to fuel its revenue growth and profits.

Funding will be used to expand the sales team while enhancing the SoftNAS platform as the cloud-services industry experiences phenomenal demand.

“Data is no longer confined to traditional data centers, and the resulting demand for cloud services means it’s essential for us to accelerate our business growth at this time,” said co-founder and CTO Rick Braddy. “Decathlon sees the potential in what we aim to accomplish. With their investment, we can take SoftNAS growth to the next level. The public cloud has crossed the chasm into mainstream adoption as large enterprises move business-critical application workloads and data into Microsoft Azure and AWS.”

“Our mission is to be the fabric for business data in the cloud,” said President and CEO Michael Goodwin. “We’re making data storage and cloud migrations faster, easier, less expensive and more efficient. That requires continued innovation to our platform and a growing sales team to get the word out. Thanks to Decathlon, we have the additional fuel to fund our growth as we accelerate in tandem with the public cloud.”

Worldwide public cloud services revenue is projected to increase by more than 33 percent to $411 billion annually in 2020, according to Gartner.

The “NAS” in SoftNAS stands for Network Attached Storage, an IT term for software that enables data and file sharing using popular protocols. It also increases storage efficiency and protects business-critical applications with market-leading, patented high-availability, DR/replication, thin-provisioning, data protection and data efficiency.

“Demand for secure, reliable cloud systems is growing at a remarkable rate,” said John Borchers, Decathlon co-founder and managing director. “Whether it’s massive data storage and retrieval systems for big business or devices that are part of the Internet of Things, the cloud is the common denominator. SoftNAS has hit its growth stage at a prime time in the evolution of cloud technology. We at Decathlon are pleased to make this investment in their vision.”
