CliQr’s CloudCenter Wins Best of Show “Grand Prix” Award at Interop Tokyo
CliQr’s Hybrid Cloud Application Management Solution Sweeps Cloud Platform Category Over Finalists Including VMware, IBM, and Dell
Santa Clara, Calif., June 13, 2014—CliQr Technologies, the leader in hybrid cloud application migration and lifecycle management, today announced that CliQr’s CloudCenter™ solution has won the prestigious Grand Prix Best of Show Award in the Cloud Platform category at Interop Tokyo, 2014. CliQr’s co-founder and CEO Gaurav Manglik joined CliQr’s partner, Net One Systems, to showcase the CloudCenter platform at the event.
“We are both honored and excited to receive this prestigious award. We believe this recognition further validates the significance of our CloudCenter technology for the entire cloud industry,” said Manglik. “As enterprises increasingly embrace cloud adoption, whether it is to a public, private or hybrid environment, they are demanding the flexibility to move and manage their applications easily and with far more flexibility than we see today. CloudCenter’s unique application-based technology combined with a suite of cloud-focused lifecycle management features such as price-performance benchmarking, multi-user governance along with full version control and release management makes it the answer enterprises are looking for to move to the cloud.”
With CliQr’s CloudCenter application management platform, application-aware cloud computing becomes a reality. CliQr makes it easy to migrate and manage the full lifecycle of applications from any on-premise or cloud environment to any physical, private or public cloud. While other cloud migration tools force applications to conform to each diverse cloud environment, CliQr’s application-based approach reimagines the concept of cloud migration by enabling clouds to dynamically provision their best-practice infrastructure and services to meet the native and optimal requirements of applications.
“We are thrilled to be a reseller of CliQr’s CloudCenter technology in Japan,” said Chief Marketing Officer Fumihiko Shinoura of Net One Systems. “The overwhelming response we experienced at Interop Tokyo for CliQr’s CloudCenter and our advanced product portfolio for hybrid virtual data centers was phenomenal. We look forward to a highly successful relationship with CliQr.”
