MENLO PARK, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/05/12 -- Delphix, the leader in agile data management, today announced it was selected by Red Herring as a Top 100 Global Winner. Red Herring's Top 100 Global list has become a mark of distinction for identifying promising new companies and entrepreneurs. Red Herring editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, Skype, Salesforce.com, YouTube, and eBay would change the way we live and work.
"Delphix continues to see rapid adoption of database virtualization by customers across all industries," said Jedidiah Yueh, Delphix CEO. "With our software, businesses such as Facebook, Informatica, Wind River, and Comcast roll out application projects faster, with far less operational complexity and hardware infrastructure. The Red Herring 100 Global award recognizes the impact our solution is making on customers worldwide."
Red Herring's editorial staff evaluated the companies on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technology innovation, management quality, strategy, and market penetration. This assessment of potential is complemented by a review of the track record and standing of startups relative to their peers, allowing 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 from around the world.
"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 Global to the Top 100 Winners. We believe Delphix embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. Delphix should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was the strongest it has ever been."
