“Under the Radar attracts the technology industry’s ‘A crowd’ and we congratulate NorthScale on the outstanding achievement of being named Best in Show by these technology aficianados,” said Debbie Landa, CEO and president of Dealmaker Media, the conference organizer. “This year’s Under the Radar: Cloud was a smashing success, with more than 350 technology leaders attending to watch more than 30 innovative companies that were hand-picked to tell their stories and showcase their technology. All of these companies are to be congratulated.”

“We are thrilled to be recognized as one of the leading innovators in cloud computing, and honored to be one of this year’s top winners,” said James Phillips. “NorthScale is investing heavily to remove one of the few remaining barriers to widespread adoption of the cloud within enterprise data centers (so-called private clouds). Our elastic data caching and database management technology mirrors what was built by Amazon and Google to enable their public cloud offerings, but is packaged, tested and supported to meet enterprise standards for deployment in the data centers of Global 2000 companies.”
