Red Herring recognizes Scality’s Vision, Drive and Innovation.
San Francisco, CA, July 24th 2012. Scality, storage infrastructure innovator, announced today that it won the prestigious Red Herring Top 100 Americas Award.
“The Red Herring Top 100 Award is the award to win. Trends come and go, but two things have been stable in the past fifteen years: the growing importance of IT infrastructure to the overall economy, and the Red Herring award”. Jerome Lecat, Scality CEO
“Choosing the companies with the strongest potential was by no means a small feat,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. “After rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of candidates from across North America to the Top 100 Winners. We believe Scality embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. Scality should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was very strong.”
Since 1995, The Red Herring awards carefully scrutinize a company’s financials, technological innovation, market penetration and management to determine its potential for success. The list provides a barometric reading of the market, revealing exciting technologies bound for success and long term growth.
