AppZero Named One of “100 Coolest Cloud Computing Products”

AppZero has announced that Everything Channel's CRN has named its server-side application virtualization software one of the "100 Coolest Cloud Computing Products." The Top 100 Cloud Computing products include 20 storage vendors, 20 security vendors, 20 productivity vendors, 20 infrastructure vendors and 20 platform vendors.

AppZero technology encapsulates a server application in a Virtual Application Appliance (VAA), which contains all of the application's dependencies, but with zero operating system (OS) component. The VAA, freed from any OS encumbrance, can move seamlessly from data center to, and among, clouds and back across both physical and virtual servers.

"AppZero's mobility of server-side applications makes it easy for enterprise data centers to instantaneously provision a single copy of a ‘gold' application image to 1,000s of machines in the data center and/or to any cloud or combination of clouds," says Greg O'Connor, AppZero CEO. "This automation of installation and configuration of server applications speeds deployment, reduces errors, and cuts the need for a human touch."

The list was based on nominations from Solution Providers rating technology, channel influence, effectiveness and visibility along with business and sales impact. The final selections were made by a panel of Everything Channel Editors.
