BURLINGTON, Massachusetts, February 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Attunity Ltd. (NASDAQ CM: ATTU), a leading provider of information availability software solutions, announced today that it has been named one of the top 100 Coolest Cloud Vendors of 2014 by CRN Magazine. The annual list recognizes the most innovative cloud vendors and solutions tailored to address the industry's unique needs. The list also helps solution providers navigate the growing cloud marketplace and identify the best solutions to support the IT channel. Winners are named across five major cloud categories, including platforms and tools, infrastructure, storage, security, and software. Attunity and its Attunity CloudBeam software were featured in the 'Cloud Storage Vendor' category.
"The adoption of cloud computing solutions is showing no signs of slowing down as solution providers look to offer their clients the scalability, flexibility and cost benefits necessary to compete in today's business environment," said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company - publishers of CRN Magazine. "Each vendor on this list was carefully selected based on its ability to help organizations capitalize on those opportunities."
With the need for Integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS) solutions on the rise and rapidly growing, Gartner's January Magic Quadrant highlighted key companies in the iPaaS industry, outlining their strengths, weaknesses, and what buyers might want to consider before purchasing. The report acknowledges Attunity CloudBeam as one to watch and states: 'As confirmed by clients, Attunity CloudBeam drastically reduces the time and resources required to reach a solution when data needs to be migrated (or needs to be synchronized) from on-premises DBMSs [Database Management Systems] to Amazon Redshift, S3 and RDS.'"The cloud offers companies the convenience of storing vast amounts of large, complicated data affordably, but with that comes the need to move that data quickly, securely and easily," said Lawrence Schwartz, VP Marketing at Attunity. "We are thrilled that well-respected industry leaders such as CRN Magazine and Gartner recognize our contribution to enabling cloud and hybrid environments to succeed and flourish."
