Delphix Wins 2011 Red Herring 100 North America Award
Menlo Park, CA - June 16th, 2011--Delphix, the market-leading provider of database virtualization software, today announced that it has been named to Red Herring's North America 100 list, a prestigious list honoring the year's most promising private technology ventures in North America.
"Since launching our product last year, we've seen adoption of database virtualization across all industries," said Jedidiah Yueh, Delphix CEO. "With our software, businesses like TiVo, Corporate Express, Intuitive Surgical, SuccessFactors, Informatica, and Comcast roll out application projects faster, with far less operational complexity and hardware infrastructure. The Red Herring 100 award recognizes the impact our solution is making for customers across the globe."
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, including finance, pharmaceuticals, telecommunications, retail, manufacturing, consumer goods, technology, and SaaS.
The Red Herring editorial team selected the most innovative companies from a pool of thousands from across North America. Winners of the 2011 edition of the Red Herring 100 North America award were selected based upon their technological innovation, management strength, market size, investor record, customer acquisition, and financial health. Red Herring's annual lists of top private companies are an important part of the company's tradition of identifying new and innovative technology companies and entrepreneurs. Past winners such as Google, eBay, and Skype were spotted in their early days by Red Herring editors and touted as leaders that would change the way we live and work.
Over a decade ago, Red Herring selected Yueh's first software company, Avamar, as a Red Herring 100 winner. In 1999 Yueh founded Avamar, the software company that pioneered data de-duplication for disk backup, a multi-billion dollar category. After being acquired by EMC in 2006, Avamar has rocketed in global market share and was recently ranked as the highest rated backup software solution in product quality in the industry by Storage magazine. "We believe database virtualizaiton will drive far more value and have a significantly larger impact on businesses than data de-duplication," added Yueh.
"Choosing the companies with the strongest potential was by no means a small feat," said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO, Red Herring. "After rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of candidates from across North America to the Top 100 Winners. We believe Delphix embodies the vision, drive, and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. Delphix should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was very strong."
