PORTSMOUTH, N.H., July 22 // -- VKernel, a provider of affordable, easy-to-use, and quick-to-deploy virtualization management and optimization software, today announced that it has been selected to the 2009 AlwaysOn Global 250 List. The AlwaysOn Global 250 Award is given to private, emerging technology companies creating new business opportunities in high-growth markets. VKernel was selected by the AlwaysOn editorial team based on demonstration of growth, market opportunity, quality of innovation and customer traction.
"It is a great honor to be recognized as a top private company by AlwaysOn," said Alex Bakman, founder and CEO of VKernel. "Organizations see the potential value in virtualization and VKernel's solutions are designed to help them quickly optimize their virtual environments, improve the utilization of expensive resources and manage VM sprawl to control costs."
VKernel and the other AlwaysOn Global 250 winners will be recognized at the AlwaysOn and STVP Summit at Stanford, taking place at Stanford University in Palo Alto, CA, on July 28-30. This two-and-a-half day executive conference co-presented by the Stanford Technology Ventures Program will highlight the significant economic, political and commercial trends affecting the global technology industries.
"It's no secret that technology and innovation are vital to bringing our country out of economic recession," said Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn. "The companies on this year's list have not only created innovative technologies that solve real business problems, but have stimulated economic growth through the generation of new jobs. I congratulate every winner selected for this year's award and wish them all tremendous success in the future."
The AlwaysOn Global 250 winners were selected from among hundreds of other technology companies nominated by investors, bankers, journalists and industry insiders. The AlwaysOn editorial team conducted a rigorous three-month selection process to finalize the 2009 list.
