SAN MATEO, CA – December 17, 2014 – SIOS Technology Corp. (www.us.sios.com), maker of SAN and #SANLess clustering software products, has been named a finalist in the 2014-2015 Cloud Awards Program in the category Best Cloud Infrastructure.
With awards for excellence and innovation in cloud computing, the cloud computing awards program accepts entries from across the entire globe, including the US, Canada, Australasia and EMEA. Now in its fourth year, entries are accepted from organizations of any size, and include start-ups and government bodies. In 2014-15, new categories include Data Innovation of the Year, “Best in Mobile” Cloud Solution, Most Promising Start-Up and Best Software as a Service.
Jerry Melnick, COO of SIOS Technology, said: “For SIOS to be shortlisted in the Best Cloud Infrastructure category of the 2014-15 Cloud Awards program is a special honor. We feel privileged to be recognized among the other nominees.”
Over 300 organizations entered, with entries coming from across the globe, covering the Americas, Australia, Europe and the Middle East.
Cloud Awards organizer Larry Johnson said: “The standard of entries to this year’s program has been truly staggering – so much so that even after culling hundreds of organizations from our consideration, our shortlist is still longer than ever before. We’ve been very impressed with how the Cloud ecosystem has evolved by the end of 2014 and these best-of-breed organizations are knocking it out of the park in terms of performance. These technologies aren’t going away: leverage them now or ignore them at your peril. When the dust has settled on what promises to be the most diverse and dynamic field of candidates yet, nobody knows what the 2015-16 Cloud Awards program will bring next year aside from continued excellence.”
Final winners will be announced on Tuesday 27 January 2015. This will not be the end of the process, with a public vote announced on this date to decide who will win the Cloud Computing Organization of the Year Award.
The Cloud Awards (http://www.cloud-awards.com/) will return in 2015-16 for a fresh awards program seeking excellence in cloud computing.
