New York, NY (PRWEB) June 29, 2012
GigaSpaces Technologies, a pioneer of next-generation application platforms for mission-critical applications, was recognized in June as a winner of the 2012 SD Times 100 award. The award represents a snapshot of the software development leaders identified by the editors during the 2011 calendar year. The full list of the companies was published in the June 2012 issue of BZ Media’s SD Times.
Chosen as a leading software development organization, GigaSpaces Technologies was singled out as one of 14 companies impacting the cloud computing space—a list of companies which also included Amazon, Google, OpenStack and Heroku.
"The software development industry has always been competitive, and this year's difficult horse-race showed that there's more than one way to thrive in challenging economic climate" said Alan Zeichick, Co-Founder and Editorial Director of BZ Media's SD Times. "When calling the winners of the 2012 SD Times 100, the editors carefully considered each organization's products and services, industry thought leadership, and reputation with enterprise development managers. Thanks to companies like GigaSpaces, software developers always know the winning ticket."
In the last year, GigaSpaces was also awarded the Red Herring 100 Europe, CRN’s Top 20 Coolest Cloud Platform Vendors 2012, the CloudTimes 100 and CloudBeat’s Innovation Showdown Top Ten.
“In late 2011, GigaSpaces first introduced Cloudify, our open source PaaS stack, for on-boarding of applications to the cloud,” said Adi Paz, EVP Marketing and Business Development at GigaSpaces. “To be honored as a leading driver of the cloud space by SD Times and other influential organizations less than a year after introducing our solution shows not only the power of Cloudify to transform businesses use of the cloud but the market need for a cloud-agnostic solution like ours.”
