Artisan Infrastructure Named as SVC Award Finalist for 2015 IaaS Product of the Year

SVC Awards Recognize the Cornerstone IaaS Platform for Channel Focused Wholesale IaaS

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwired - Oct 28, 2015) - Artisan Infrastructure, the leading innovator of cloud infrastructure, cloud management and business continuity solutions, today announced that the company's Cornerstone™ IaaS platform was recognized in the SVC Awards as a 2015 IaaS Product of the Year finalist. Key advantages of the Artisan Infrastructure platform highlighted in these awards include full visibility and control over the cloud solutions managed by IT solution providers, native control, industry compliant security, and 100% uptime service level agreements (SLAs).

The Storage, Virtualization, Cloud (SVC) Awards reward the products, projects, and services as well as honor companies and teams operating in the cloud, virtualization, and storage sectors. Nominated products are first selected as finalists by a panel of IT publication editors and analysts and then submitted to an open vote of IT end users. The winners will be announced at a gala evening event at the Royal Garden Hotel, Kensington, London on December 3, 2015.

Artisan Infrastructure's Cornerstone family of cloud products and services are designed for IT service and solution providers. Focused exclusively on helping Artisan Infrastructure partners bring a wide variety of cloud solutions to market, the platform can accommodate large, complex technology configurations while remaining flexible to service provider requirements. With Cornerstone, IT administrators avoid the "one-size-fits-all" approach that is common with many cloud infrastructure vendors. Instead, solution providers benefit from a customizable platform that is capable of meeting the most demanding business requirements.

According to International Data Corporation (IDC), "By 2016, there will be an 11% shift of IT budget away from traditional in-house IT delivery, toward various versions of cloud computing as a new delivery model. By 2017, 35% of new applications will use cloud-enabled, continuous delivery, enabled by faster DevOps life cycles to streamline rollout of new features and business innovation."1

"Demand for cloud computing solutions and services continues to rise and our partners are the beneficiaries of this growth," said Brian Hierholzer, CEO, Artisan Infrastructure. "With a focus on helping IT solution partners cloud-enable their service offerings while remaining flexible to their unique needs, our organization has differentiated itself by providing more granular visibility and control over cloud solution delivery. This has been validated by the SVC Awards and we appreciate this recognition of our success."
