Cloud Expo Sponsor Abiquo Named One of the Top Ten Startups of 2010

It is the startups and early stage companies that are taking a fresh approach in the emerging cloud computing market

Abiquo, a leading Cloud management software vendor, on Tuesday announced that CRN/ChannelWeb has named Abiquo one of the “Top Ten Startups of 2010”. CRN/ChannelWeb acknowledged that while larger vendors are adding the word “Cloud” to their marketing materials, it is the startups and early stage companies that are taking a fresh approach and making waves in this emerging Cloud computing market.

It’s not surprising then that CRN/ChannelWeb looked to startups as the most likely companies to take the Cloud to the next level. And, the ten startups they selected are all companies that were either launched or generated significant market momentum in the first half of 2010. Abiquo, which launched two major Cloud management software releases (Abiquo 1.5 and Abiquo 1.6) this year, was selected as one of the ten startups of 2010.

"Our selection as one of the top ten Cloud startups in 2010 is a testament to Abiquo’s early lead in providing enterprise-ready Cloud management solutions," said Pete Malcolm, Abiquo CEO. "We continue to experience significant market traction as more clients embrace Abiquo to reduce IT operating costs and compliance risks while improving overall efficiency. None of our competitors come close to attaining the proven value of our integrated Cloud management platform."

Recently, Abiquo was selected as one of the top 15 Cloud companies to watch by Network World.
