New York, March 21, 2012 – GigaSpaces, a pioneer of next generation application platforms for mission-critical applications, today announced it was named one of CRN's Top 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors of 2012. This list highlights the most cutting-edge and exciting cloud products to hit the channel over the past year. From storage and security cloud offerings, to cloud apps, infrastructure and platforms, each vendor on the list offers a cool new product that is beneficial to both solution providers and end-customers.

 "This year's Top Cloud Computing Vendor award is presented to vendors for creating an innovative cloud product, or an innovative approach to supporting solution providers in the IT channel," said Kelley Damore, Vice President and Editorial Director CRN. "Each vendor on this list was carefully selected by the CRN editorial team based on their ability to deliver a cool new cloud-based product that helps organizations and enterprises take advantage of the ease, flexibility, scalability, elasticity and cost savings that leveraging cloud computing has to offer.

 It is a given today that most enterprises want to make a move to the cloud – whether public or private – to gain the benefits of agility and cost reduction. However, deploying mission-critical applications to the cloud can present significant challenges. Cloudify's mission statement can be stated as follows: to cloud-enable enterprise and mission-critical apps easily and non-intrusively. Essentially, this means that Cloudify enables you to take an existing application and seamlessly deploy and manage it on your private or public cloud, with no code changes.

 "GigaSpaces' Cloudify enables the on-boarding of mission critical applications to the cloud without code changes – an essential aspect in the maturing of the cloud marketplace," said Nati Shalom, CTO and Founder of GigaSpaces. "We're honored that CRN recognized Cloudify as a solution that is impacting cloud users today and into tomorrow."

Selected by CRN's editorial staff, the 2012 Coolest Cloud list is featured in the March issue of CRN Magazine and online at
