CliQr Honored as Coolest Cloud Vendor by CRN
CliQr, the leading enterprise cloud management platform provider, announced today that CRN, a brand of The Channel Company, has named CliQr to its 2016 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors list. This annual lineup recognizes the most innovative and effective cloud technology suppliers in each of five categories: infrastructure, platforms and development, security, storage and software.

The 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors are selected by the CRN editorial team for their creativity and innovation in product development, the quality of their services and partner programs, and their demonstrated ability to help customers benefit from the ease of use, flexibility, scalability and budgetary savings that cloud computing offers.

In addition to recognizing cloud technology suppliers for outstanding products and services, 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors also serves as a valuable guide for solution providers trying to navigate the cloud market. The list aids prospective channel partners in identifying the vendors that can best help them improve or expand their cloud service offerings.

CliQr is recognized for its ability to create new levels of portability and manageability by de-coupling applications from the complexities of the underlying cloud by leveraging each cloud's unique best practices. CliQr's CloudCenter delivers full lifecycle management, cloud independence, enterprise class scalability, multi-tenancy and security and fast time-to-value with its intuitive platform.

"Cloud-based solutions have become an indispensable and fast-growing part of today's IT infrastructure. The demand for solution providers who can deliver these technologies and services is now higher than ever," said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. "CRN's annual list of 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors helps solution providers find and engage with the suppliers who can best support them, either during the critical transition to the cloud or in the improvement and expansion of their existing cloud offerings."

"We're honored to be named to CRN's 2016 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors list. CliQr's inclusion firmly validates our application-centric approach to cloud migration and management, which we have seen resonate with the market over the past year," said David Cope, executive vice-president and CMO of CliQr. "Businesses realize that the true promise of the cloud lies in users' ability to fluidly move and manage applications to and across a variety of data centers and private and public clouds, depending on workload criteria. And this promise is exactly what CliQr was founded to do."

The new 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors list will be featured in the February 2016 issue of CRN and online at
