Cloud Linux Inc., an innovative software company dedicated to serving the needs of hosting service providers, announces that it is a finalist in the 2010 Cloud Computing World Series Awards. Cloud Linux is featured in the “Best Start-Up” category, which recognizes companies that were founded after January 2009 and provide a cloud-based product or service in the cloud computing and Software as a Service (SaaS) market. CloudLinux is a new commercially supported operating system proven to increase server density, stability and performance, helping customers realize reduced operating costs and increased profitability.
“We are honored that Cloud Linux has been nominated as a finalist in the “Best Start-Up” category,” states Igor Seletskiy, CEO and Founder of Cloud Linux Inc. “CloudLinux was designed to be a simple and elegant solution that helps companies improve server efficiency, density and performance so they can take advantage of Cloud-based services. We know the competitive field is tough, so making it to the final round is very exciting for our eight month old company.” CloudLinux is crucial for web hosts and data centers that require better control and efficiency from their infrastructure so that they can adapt to new cloud-based services. CloudLinux’s proprietary approach is an RPM-based Operating System that uses CloudLinux’s own kernel with new Lightweight Virtual Environment™ or LVE Technology to provide “crash proof” multi-tenant server environments.
The Cloud Computing World Forum is sponsoring the Cloud Computing World Series Awards to showcase the full cloud computing supply chain including vendors from leading suppliers, integrators and end-users offering a full view of the Cloud Computing and SaaS marketplaces. Show Director, Mark Johnstone, announced that tough choices had to be made to arrive at a shortlist. “We are delighted with the number of organizations entering the awards this year,” he said. “The quantity and quality of entries has been extremely high, which can only be very positive for the future of business computing.”
Winners of the Cloud Computing World Series Awards will be announced on June 29th at an award ceremony to be held at the Olympia Conference Center in London.
