If you were tuned in to VMworld, you may have already heard that Skytap was selected by TechTarget’s SearchServerVirtualization as a “Best of VMworld 2012” award finalist in the public and hybrid cloud computing technologies category–making it the third consecutive year we’ve been recognized at the VMworld event.
We were selected based on recent product innovations, including a Virtual Private PaaS offering featuring Cloud Foundry integration, as well as new hybrid cloud capabilities for enterprises looking to extend their existing, on-premises VMware environments to an enterprise class cloud computing environment.
With Skytap, enterprise end users are empowered to extend their existing on-premises virtualized infrastructure with complete virtualized private data centers connected securely in Skytap Cloud. The Skytap Intelligent Automation Platform™ provides automation and self-service capabilities that make complex cloud environments simple, easy, and intuitive. Skytap customers benefit from on-demand provisioning of complex computing environments, advanced software defined networking, global team collaboration, and secure remote access to VMs via SmartClient™ technology using any modern browser or native RDP client. In addition, IT administrators maintain full security control, access policy management, and visibility similar to their existing on-premises computing resources, including monitoring, usage quotas, automated notifications, and real-time reporting.
“Being selected as a Best of VMworld award winner for the third consecutive year is great validation of our continued product innovation and leadership in enterprise cloud computing,” said Brett Goodwin, vice president of marketing and business development at Skytap. “However, the real proof of our success is the increased business agility, reduced time to market, increased speed of doing business that over 200 forward thinking enterprise customers are achieving with Skytap Cloud today.” This award marks the fourth major accolade received by Skytap in 2012, including being recognized as a SearchServerVirtualization.com’s 2011 Product of the Year and WTIA Commercial Product of the Year, and being named to the AlwaysOn OnDemand 100 list for the third consecutive year.
