Abiquo Receives Recognition for Cloud Management Solution

Selected by AlwaysOn as an OnDemand Top 100 Winner for second concurrent year

Abiquo was chosen by AlwaysOn as one of the winners of the OnDemand Top 100 Private Companies 2011, an honor it also received in 2010. The Top 100 are recognized as leaders in the Cloud and Internet spaces that use game-changing approaches and technologies that are likely to disrupt existing markets and lead to large value creation opportunities.

"Cloud computing has the potential to completely alter the IT landscape, but the business model needs a management technology to enable and support the transition," said Abiquo CEO Pete Malcolm. "Abiquo has been consistently recognized as a leader in this crowded space, and is pleased to be named a winner in the Top 100 Cloud Management category again this year."

Abiquo's innovation in the emerging sector of cloud infrastructure management and selection to the OnDemand 100 is based on its class-leading solution with unique features like business policy for automated provisioning and deployment, which are changing the way IT organizations operate and service their users. Abiquo empowers enterprises to create and manage private and hybrid clouds with simultaneous multi-hypervisor and multi-platform support. Abiquo automatically enforces business policies set by the enterprise's global infrastructure composed of compute, network, and storage resources to ensure security and compliance. For example, a rule for SOX compliance can be set for one or more user groups, which will then ensure that these user groups can only deploy or move a virtual machine to a SOX compliant server.
