This annual lineup recognizes the most innovative and effective cloud technology suppliers in each of five categories: infrastructure, platforms and development, security, storage and software.
The 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors are selected by the CRN editorial team for their creativity and innovation in product development, the quality of their services and partner programs, and their demonstrated ability to help customers benefit from the ease of use, flexibility, scalability and budgetary savings that cloud computing offers.
In addition to recognizing cloud technology suppliers for outstanding products and services, 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors also serves as a valuable guide for solution providers trying to navigate the cloud market. The list aids prospective channel partners in identifying the vendors that can best help them improve or expand their cloud service offerings.

“We’re honored to be named to CRN’s 2016 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors list. CliQr’s inclusion firmly validates our application-centric approach to cloud migration and management, which we have seen resonate with the market over the past year,” said David Cope, executive vice-president and CMO of CliQr. “Businesses realize that the true promise of the cloud lies in users’ ability to fluidly move and manage applications to and across a variety of data centers and private and public clouds, depending on workload criteria. And this promise is exactly what CliQr was founded to do.”
