CloudPhysics Named a Top 100 Private Company by AlwaysOn

Recognized for Innovation, Market Potential, Commercialization, Stakeholder Value and Media Buzz

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/20/14 -- CloudPhysics, who provides predictive analytics for virtual datacenter management, today announced that it has been selected by AlwaysOn as one of the OnDemand 100 Top Private Companies. Inclusion in the OnDemand 100 signifies leadership amongst peers and game-changing approaches and technologies that are likely to disrupt existing markets and entrenched players.

The OnDemand 100 winners were selected from hundreds of technology companies nominated by investors, bankers, journalists and industry insiders. CloudPhysics was selected by the AlwaysOn editorial team and industry experts spanning the globe based on five criteria: innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value and media buzz.

"This year, the top cloud infrastructure, SaaS and on-demand software players are making serious inroads into the enterprise and business community. Cloud storage wars and excellent software offerings are making the cloud an even more attractive place to do business. Both business and consumer users are migrating to the cloud in droves, bringing us into a new digital age filled with opportunity," said Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn. "This year's OnDemand 100 winners list is jam packed with companies that are using the cloud to create and host imaginative, versatile apps. Mobile, business, consumer -- the on-demand universe is propelling the entire Global Silicon Valley into an interdependent, connected and mobile future."

CloudPhysics was founded in 2011 with the mission to continuously deliver insights to IT teams for actively managing the dynamics of their virtualized infrastructures. The company's SaaS offering collects machine metadata of virtualized datacenters and, with the power of big data analytics, 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. CloudPhysics has been named a Top 10 Big Data Startup to Watch by Network World, a Top 10 Virtualization Company to Watch in 2014 by TechTarget SearchServerVirtualization, a Top 12 Cloud Company to Watch by Network World, one of the 21 hottest startups by Business Insider, a MIT Sloan CIO Symposium Innovation Showcase Finalist, 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.

"Big data is used extensively to drive analytics for many consumer-facing industries; ironically, IT has yet to exploit this power to manage datacenter operations," said John Blumenthal, CloudPhysics CEO and Co-Founder. "It's exciting to be recognized for our innovative use of the cloud and big data to answer questions about how our users' virtualized infrastructure is -- and should be -- running. We are honored to be named a top private company by AlwaysOn."

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation.

Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
