Top Ten Cloud Computing Leader To Watch
SANTA CLARA, CA–(Marketwire – June 29, 2010) – OpSource, Inc., the leader in enterprise cloud and managed hosting, today announced that Datamation.com recently recognized the company as one of the top ten cloud computing “leaders to watch“ in a list which also included IBM, AT&T, and Cisco. Leaders were chosen based on objective criteria, including customer traction, experience and market cap or financing, as well as subjective criteria, such as ability to innovate, ease of use, and how well cloud offerings integrate with the company’s broader portfolio.
With hundreds of customers such as Adobe, SAP, Taleo and Xactly, OpSource was recognized as a leader because of its unique position as the “go-to ‘cloud operations’ provider.” Offering more than traditional hosting services, OpSource provides Application Operations, which includes database management, compliance management, change management, performance management and application optimization. In 2009, the company introduced OpSource Cloud, a cloud service for companies requiring pay-as-you-go flexibility and 100% availability as well as high security and control.
OpSource was also chosen for its vision and solution-oriented strategy. The company predicts a near future where the cloud marketplace is built around an ecosystem of developers, integrators, telcos and VARs. OpSource believes in this ecosystem because enterprise customers buy solutions, and they increasingly see cloud hosting and managed hosting services as a component to an overall solution. To this end, OpSource has already inked a partnership with NTT America this May, under which NTT America will deliver enterprise cloud services built on OpSource Cloud.
“We believe that more than half of Infrastructure-as-a-Service will eventually be sold through channels and solution providers,” said Treb Ryan, CEO, OpSource. “We are gratified that a leading publication like Datamation.com has confidence in our vision for this future, and we thank them for this recognition.”
