CloudPhysics Named One of the Top 10 Virtualization Companies to Watch in 2014, Poised to Disrupt the Market

Mountain View, CA - January 7, 2014 - CloudPhysics, who provides intelligent operations management for virtualized workloads, today announced that it was named one of the top 10 virtualization companies to watch in 2014 by TechTarget SearchServerVirtualization along with Delphix, Hotlink, Infinio, Intigua, Neverfail, Nutanix, PLUMgrid, Proximal Data and SimpliVity.

SearchServerVirtualization Site Editor Nick Martin said: “The one thing these companies all have in common is that they're poised for a successful year and are ready to bring innovative new technologies to market to help solve some of the virtual data center's nagging problems.”

CloudPhysics was founded in 2011 with the mission to continuously deliver insights to IT teams for actively managing the dynamics of their infrastructures. The company's SaaS offering automatically uncovers hidden operational hazards before problems emerge as well as identifies radical efficiency improvements in storage, compute and networking with VMware workloads, giving IT more power than ever before to understand, troubleshoot and optimize their virtualized datacenters.

This is the latest in a series of accolades for CloudPhysics. The company was recently named one of the 21 hottest startups by Business Insider, one of the 10 startups in the VMware Universe worth tracking at VMworld 2013 and one of the most notable vendors by Enterprise Management Associates. The company won the VMworld 2013 Best of Breed Cloud Management Award presented by Virtualization Review magazine and was named a finalist in TechTarget SearchServerVirtualization's Best of VMworld Awards in the Virtualization Management category. The company received the Best Innovation Award at VMworld 2012, where it debuted its technology.

Martin continued: “Even without a generally available product to showcase, CloudPhysics caught many eyes at VMworld 2012. This time around, IT pros flocked to the CloudPhysics booth to preview the product generating all the fuss. The appeal of CloudPhysics' big data approach to infrastructure analytics lies not just in how it can provide unique vision to an environment or identify potential configuration problems, but how the company envisions using all that data on a macro scale. The idea of ‘collective intelligence,’ as CloudPhysics calls it, promises to build new insight by comparing operational patterns across hundreds of companies, and puts CloudPhysics in a category of its own.”

"We're honored to continue to be recognized for our innovation and excellence," said John Blumenthal, CloudPhysics CEO and Co-Founder. "Customers love the simplicity, flexibility and unique insights our solution provides, as well as the capex and opex advantages CloudPhysics delivers.”

“SSDs are big in virtualization, but caching vendors don’t have the kind of analysis CloudPhysics makes available ... they take it to a completely new level by personalizing the precise benefits down to VMs.”
