New York, NY (PRWEB) May 10, 2012
Cirrus Thinking announced today that Dolly Drive, backup, sync, store & clone for Mac, has been selected as a Finalist for Red Herring's Top 100 Americas award, a prestigious list honoring the year’s most promising private technology ventures from the North American business region.
The Red Herring editorial team selected the most innovative companies from a pool of hundreds from across North America. The nominees are evaluated on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technology innovation, quality of management, execution of strategy, and integration into their respective industries.
Dolly Drive launched at Macworld 2011 by bringing online storage to Apple’s Time Machine backup software combined with a bootable clone for local disaster recovery. The company has since added file sync, share, and storage options to the software application for a complete data access and protection solution for the Mac community. This April, they launched Dock Station, a private cloud network appliance, for small, medium, and enterprise businesses that run on Mac and will be revealing a revolutionary backup platform this summer.
“I thank the Red Herring editorial team for recognizing the hard work and passion that has gone into our cloud productivity suite for Mac users” said Anthony Palermo, creator of Dolly Drive. “We are fortunate to have an incredible team of developers, and an even more phenomenal user community, that have helped us create this complete cloud solution for the Mac ecosystem.”
"This year was very rewarding," said Alex Vieux, publisher and Chairman of Red Herring. "There are so many great companies producing truly innovative and amazing products and technologies. We had a very difficult time narrowing the field and selecting the Finalists from such a group of future stars. Dolly Drive shows great promise therefore deserves to be on the short list. Now we are faced with the difficult task of selecting the Top 100 winners.”
Finalists for the 2012 edition of the Red Herring 100 Americas award are selected based upon their technological innovation, management strength, market size, investor record, customer acquisition, and financial health. During the several months leading up to the announcement, hundreds of companies in the, security, Web 2.0, software, hardware, life sciences, cloud, mobile and other sectors completed their submissions to qualify for the award.
The Finalists are asked to present their winning strategies at the Red Herring Americas Forum in Santa Monica, California, May 21-23, 2012. The Top 100 winners will be announced at a special awards ceremony the evening of May 23 at the event.
