Delphix Selected By AlwaysOn As An OnDemand Top 100 Winner
DATABASE VIRTUALIZATION SOFTWARE COMPANY RECOGNIZED FOR CREATING NEW OPPORTUNITIES IN CLOUD COMPUTING AND SAAS
MENLO PARK, CA - March 28th, 2011--Delphix, the market-leading provider of database virtualization software, today announced that it has been chosen by AlwaysOn as one of the OnDemand Top 100 winners. OnDemand 100 companies are recognized as leaders amongst their peers who are developing game-changing approaches and technologies that are likely to disrupt existing markets and entrenched players. Following a rigorous selection process, Delphix was selected by the AlwaysOn editorial team and industry experts based on a set of five criteria: innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value, and media buzz.
Delphix and the OnDemand Top 100 companies will be honored at AlwaysOn's OnDemand event on March 28th, 2011, at Hewlett-Packard's Worldwide Headquarters in Palo Alto, CA. This two-and-a-half-day executive event features CEO presentations and high-level debates on how the Internet is disrupting how companies--from small businesses to large enterprises--create, store, distribute, analyze, and take advantage of their mission-critical data.
"As the digital information created by businesses continues to explode at astronomical rates, the need to store, manage, socialize, and share this information is becoming extremely challenging," says Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn. "By providing innovative technologies that help enterprises better compete in this new era of information complexity and move their data out into the cloud, the OnDemand 100 represent some of the highest-growth opportunities in the private company marketplace."
The OnDemand 100 winners were selected from among hundreds of other technology companies nominated by investors, bankers, journalists, and industry insiders. The AlwaysOn editorial team conducted a rigorous three-month selection process to finalize the 2011 list.
Delphix applies the simplifying concept of virtualization to database infrastructure, turning structured data and its supporting infrastructure into software that operates in a fraction of the space, while preserving full functionality and performance. Customers of Delphix Server include members of the Fortune 1000 across major industries, such as technology, telecommunications, retail, manufacturing, consumer goods, and SaaS.
"Delphix software enables private clouds for databases, resulting in improved agility, efficient resource utilization, and elastic economics," said Jedidiah Yueh, Delphix CEO. "We're honored to be recognized by AlwaysOn as one of the Top 100 cloud infrastructure companies in the world, and we look forward to pushing the boundaries of what is possible in this rapidly maturing category."
