Leading PaaS Provider Named Among IT Innovators for Second Year in a Row
WOBURN, MA. - August 12, 2013 - CloudBees, Inc., the Java Platform as a Service (PaaS) innovation leader, today announced it has been named a 2013 Emerging Technology vendor by UBM Tech Channel’s CRN Magazine. The annual list highlights hot tech startups making an impact on the channel and a strong impression on the tech industry as a whole. These up-and-coming technology vendors have recently introduced a new product or technology that is not only innovative but generates the high margins solution providers require in today’s competitive marketplace.
The CloudBees Platform as a Service (PaaS) continues to stand out in the industry as the only Java PaaS that is in production and is supporting the entire development and deployment of thousands of production applications today. CloudBees’ recent acquisition of FoxWeave advances the company’s PaaS leadership, bringing native data migration and synchronization services to the CloudBees Platform and simplifying the way developers compose services and weave them together with PaaS-hosted application logic.
“Any technology vendor can claim to offer innovative products and groundbreaking technology, but only a select group can truly impact the marketplace with their offerings,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, UBM Tech Channel. “The companies named to the 2013 Emerging Vendor list offer solutions that deliver as promised while creating the high margins that solution providers demand. We congratulate all the vendors for their commitment to delivering technological innovations that map to the needs of the dynamic channel market.”
“It is an honor to be named a CRN Emerging Technology vendor for the second straight year,” said Sacha Labourey, CEO, CloudBees. “This represents another validation both for PaaS technology and for the business value the CloudBees platform continues to bring to our customers.”
The vendors that make up the CRN Emerging Technology Vendor list were founded in 2007 or later, and have revenue under $1 billion. To view the list and read the editorial accompaniment visit www.CRN.com. The list will also be featured in the August issue of CRN magazine.
