rPath Recognized as 2011 OnDemand Top 100 Winner by AlwaysOn
Next-generation system automation leader honored for providing new on-ramp to cloud computing in the enterprise
RALEIGH, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--rPath, the service factory for on-demand IT, today announced that it has been named an OnDemand Top 100 award winner by AlwaysOn. Inclusion in the OnDemand 100 signifies industry leadership and recognition for game-changing approaches that are likely to disrupt existing markets and entrenched players.
“By providing innovative technologies that help enterprises better compete in this new era of information complexity and move their data out into the cloud, the OnDemand 100 represent some of the highest-growth opportunities in the private company marketplace.”
rPath was selected as an OnDemand 100 winner from hundreds of other technology companies nominated by investors, bankers, journalists and industry insiders. This selection was based on five criteria: innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value and media buzz.
â€œAs the digital information created by businesses continues to explode at astronomical rates, the need to store, manage, socialize and share this information is becoming extremely challenging,â€ says Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn. â€œBy providing innovative technologies that help enterprises better compete in this new era of information complexity and move their data out into the cloud, the OnDemand 100 represent some of the highest-growth opportunities in the private company marketplace.â€
rPath was selected as an OnDemand 100 winner for its release automation platform that automates the delivery and management of software systems across physical, virtual and cloud environments. This award comes on the heels of the recent public launch of rPath X6, rPathâ€™s next-generation automation platform that features a highly visual drag-and-drop command center for application deployment and maintenance.
rPath X6 allows development, QA and release engineers to quickly construct, deploy, configure and repair software stacks and business services with the click of a button. By enabling users to visually create a version-controlled blueprint for generating system images and easily managing changes up and down the stack, rPath makes the most complex IT tasks intuitive and easy to perform for any IT organization, regardless of size or sophistication.
â€œThe OnDemand 100 award further validates the need for release and system automation as a key component in achieving high-performance IT and enabling the cloud transformation thatâ€™s underway in enterprise IT,â€ said Jake Sorofman, chief marketing officer for rPath. â€œThe reality is that todayâ€™s manual and ad hoc IT provisioning and change processes will collapse under the weight of self-service, cloud and other on-demand IT models. At rPath, weâ€™re dedicated to making application deployment and maintenance both pushbutton-simple and conflict-free to maximize IT agility and responsiveness.â€
rPath and other OnDemand 100 winners were honored in late March at AlwaysOnâ€™s OnDemand event at Hewlett-Packardâ€™s worldwide headquarters in Palo Alto, CA.
