Edge Cloud Leader Zadara Appoints New CEO Amid Surpassing 500 Clouds

Zadara, an edge cloud leader, announced the appointment of top cloud executive Yoram Novick as the company’s new President and CEO. Novick is recognized as a company founder, CEO, and former board member and advisor to various technology companies such as Topio, Maxta, Storwize, Druva, and Kapow.

“The current cloud model is centralized creating a huge gap in the market and increasing demand for superior performance and security for latency sensitive applications and data sovereignty critical workloads,” said Yoram Novick, CEO, Zadara. “Zadara’s proven Edge Cloud solutions bring the benefits of cloud computing and edge computing to its powerful partner network around the world. Zadara is delivering for its customers and partners a top-notch cloud platform that meets all of their demands for a fraction of the cost of the traditional cloud model.”

The edge cloud is changing the way organizations manage their most precious asset – data, by offering high performance, low latency, compute, networking and storage where it is needed most, outside of centralized data centers, as close as necessary to where data is generated and consumed. With more than 250 global partners, Zadara is currently deploying a cloud every week and will soon offer an edge cloud location near every major city in the world powered by its partner network. Zadara’s 500+ clouds span 24 countries with the largest concentration found in the U.S., followed by Japan, the U.K., the Philippines, Israel and Brazil.

Zadara continues its growth in 2023 both organically and by acquisition. The company acquired former Stratoscale IP and NeoKarm Edge Cloud technology in 2021 solidifying its leadership in the edge cloud space. Earlier this year, Zadara acquired Brazilian technology provider ZVS as it continues its expansion into Latin America.
