Zadara™ Storage the provider of enterprise-class storageas-a-service (STaaS) was named by Red Herring as one of its Top 100 North America award winners, an annual listing that recognizes the leading private companies from the region and celebrates these startups’ innovations and technologies across their respective industries.
Red Herring Top 100 America enlists outstanding entrepreneurs and promising companies. It selects the award winners from approximately 1,200 privately financed companies each year in the US and Canada. Since 1996, Red Herring has kept tabs on these up-and-comers. Red Herring editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Yahoo, Salesforce.com, and Palo Alto Networks would change the way we live and work.
“Selecting the North American Top 100 list was once again a very difficult process,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. “The caliber of companies and the accomplishments demonstrated by the candidates was very impressive. But after much thought, rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of candidates from across North America to finalize on the North America winners. We believe Zadara Storage embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture.
As a repeat winner, Zadara Storage should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was very strong.” Red Herring’s editorial staff evaluated companies on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technological innovation and intellectual property, DNA of the founders, business model, customer footprint and addressable market. A review of the track record and standing of startups relative to their sector peers, allowed Red Herring to see past the “buzz” and make the list a valuable instrument of discovery and advocacy for the most promising new business models in North America, complement this assessment of potential.
“We are honored to be selected by Red Herring for this prestigious award for the second year in a row,” said Nelson Nahum, CEO of Zadara Storage. “We are pleased to be listed alongside previous winners such as Google, Skype, YouTube and eBay. Zadara’s success can be attributed to providing a unique and differentiated Zadara Storage Cloud solution to a rapidly growing market that is transitioning from rigid CapEx storage to flexible and agile OpEx Storage-as-a-Service.”
