Zenoss, a leading provider of unified IT operations software for
physical, virtual and cloud-based IT infrastructure, today announced
that the company has received Red Herring's North American 100 award.
Red Herring announced its Top 100 award in recognition of the leading
private companies from the Americas, celebrating these startups'
innovations and technologies across their respective industries.
Red Herring's Top 100 Americas 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.
"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 Zenoss embodies the vision, drive and innovation
that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. Zenoss should be
proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was very strong."
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 sector
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 in Americas.
"We are delighted to be recognized by Red Herring for our progress and
innovation in transforming IT operations," said Bill Karpovich, Zenoss
CEO and Co-Founder. "Red Herring has picked a group of high-caliber
companies within the cloud computing and next generation datacenter
technology space. We are honored to be included among these great
