Cary, NC (PRWEB) January 10, 2012
StrikeIron has won the Cloud Infrastructure and Cloud Computing Company of the Year awards in the inaugural 2012 Cloud Awards Program.
The annual cloud computing awards program, open internationally across the US and EMEA regions, recognizes and celebrates industry leaders and pioneers in the field of cloud computing. Categories include Best Cloud Infrastructure and Cloud Computing Company of the Year.
Cloud Awards organizer Larry Johnson said, “Almost 200 organizations entered the program, which is among the first of its kind. We were swamped by entries, and the standard was remarkably high. Judging the submissions was a challenging task. But we’re happy to endorse StrikeIron as among the best of the best in their field.
“As we move through 2012 and into 2013, we’re going to see an increasing number of organizations leveraging cloud technologies to make their operations work harder and smarter, and we want to help ensure they get the recognition they deserve.
“This first awards program is just the beginning. We know the world is full of exciting startups and established businesses which are discovering new ways to use the cloud. We’re only going to see more of them. My prediction for 2012 is that people will stop seeing the cloud as exotic or optional and start integrating cloud technologies at every level in their operational infrastructure.”
StrikeIron CEO Sean O’Leary said, “StrikeIron is delighted to have won two awards, particularly against this calibre of competition.”
The Cloud Awards will re-open this fall with a fresh program seeking upcoming players in the field of cloud computing for 2013.
