At the Cloud Computing World Forum 2011 that took place at the Olympia Conference Center in London, England, Abiquo, the leading Enterprise Cloud Management software provider, received the Cloud Computing World Series award for Best Cloud Management Solution, beating out Hewlett-Packard and VMware. The annual Cloud Computing World Series Awards recognizes the best Cloud products and services. An independent panel of judges, including press editors, industry analysts, management consultants, and practicing IT architects and leaders, selects the winners. This award adds to the many honors Abiquo has received this year. It recently won the Citrix Synergy Award for Best Partner Solution for Virtual Datacenters. It also was recognized among “Top 100″ vendors by CRN and AlwaysOn.
The judges at the Cloud Computing World Forum 2011 had to select from hundreds of nominations in each category. Wendy Perilli, vice president, global marketing for Abiquo, said, â€œThis is the second year in a row that we were recognized for this prestigious international award, but to win in the Cloud Management category this year is very gratifying. The short listed nominees for the awards, along with other assessments of the market like the recent Forrester private cloud report, suggests the top three in the market are firming up. We are very pleased to be cited consistently in that group, and in this case to come out on top.”
