MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 15, 2014) - CloudPhysics, who provides intelligent operations management for virtualized workloads, today announced that it was named one of 10 Big Data startups to watch by Network World along with Altiscale, Ayasdi, BloomReach, Couchbase, Feedzai, MemSQL, PlaceIQ, Pursway, Sumo Logic:

Network World's Jeff Vance said: "The Big Data space is heating up -- to the point that many pundits already see it as the over-hyped heir to 'cloud.' The hype may be a bit much, but Big Data is already living up to its potential, transforming entire business lines, such as marketing, pharmaceutical research, and cyber-security. While the space is still fairly new, IDC, for one, sees big things ahead. The research firm predicts that the market for Big Data technologies will reach $32.4 billion by 2017, or about six times the growth rate of the overall information and communication technology market."

CloudPhysics was founded in 2011 with the mission to continuously deliver insights to IT teams for actively managing the dynamics of their virtualized infrastructures. The company's SaaS offering collects machine metadata of virtualized datacenters and, with the power of big data analytics, uncovers hidden operational hazards before problems emerge as well as identifies radical efficiency improvements in storage, compute and networking with VMware workloads, giving IT more power than ever before to understand, troubleshoot and optimize their virtualized datacenters.

This is the second accolade Network World has bestowed upon CloudPhysics. Last month, Network World named CloudPhysics to its 12 Cloud Companies to Watch list. CloudPhysics has also been named to the Top 10 Virtualization Companies to Watch list in 2014 by TechTarget SearchServerVirtualization, one of the 21 hottest startups by Business Insider, one of the 10 startups in the VMware Universe worth tracking at VMworld 2013 and one of the most notable vendors by Enterprise Management Associates. The company won the VMworld 2013 Best of Breed Cloud Management Award presented by Virtualization Review magazine and was named a finalist in TechTarget SearchServerVirtualization's Best of VMworld Awards in the Virtualization Management category. The company received the Best Innovation Award at VMworld 2012, where it debuted its technology.

"It's exciting to be recognized for our innovative use of the cloud and big data to answer questions about how our users' virtualized infrastructure is -- and should be -- running," said John Blumenthal, CloudPhysics CEO and Co-Founder. "We are honored to be among the 10 companies selected for Network World's Big Data watch list."
