Participating companies ranged from startups in the Silicon Valley area to industry giants such as IBM, Microsoft, and Salesforce, as well as international companies from Europe, Asia and the Pacific region. Finalists in our Category were Alfresco, Hewlett Packard, Eucalyptus and Virtustream. We would like to thank those from the ClearFoundation Community who supported us by voting during the first phase of the Up-Start Cloud Awards.
Your votes helped ClearCenter obtain 4th position prior to the 2nd phase of voting, conducted at the Up-Start Conference 2012 only by those in attendance where we ended up obtaining 1st place position for the Best Hybrid Cloud Solution 2012 category. The opportunity to present at the conference helped drive awareness about ClearOS and what ClearCenter is doing for the Hybrid Cloud in relation to the other finalists.
