This year's OnDemand 100 companies are leaders and developing game-changing approaches and technologies that are likely to disrupt existing markets and entrenched players. ParaScale was specially selected by the AlwaysOn editorial team and industry experts spanning the globe based on a set of five criteria: innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value, and media buzz. ParaScale and the other OnDemand 100 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 2010 list.

"Cloud storage will transform how 'big data' is stored, managed and delivered and ParaScale is at the forefront of this innovation," said Jack Norris, vice president of marketing and business development for ParaScale. "We are honored to be recognized by AlwaysOn as an OnDemand 100 winner and a leading private company in the cloud infrastructure category."

ParaScale's recognition as a leader and inclusion on the AlwaysOn "OnDemand 100" list follows other significant industry accolades for the company including being named to Datamation's ten hot cloud computing start-ups list, an Information Week 20 cloud computing startup you should know and an Information Week startup 50, a Red Herring N. America 100 winner, and a Gartner Cool Vendor.

"As the digital information created by businesses continues to explode at astronomical rates, the need to store, manage, analyze, and share this information is becoming extremely challenging," said Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn. "We congratulate this year's 'OnDemand 100' for providing the technology platforms and services needed to manage and leverage this new era of information complexity and overload."

ParaScale and the other "OnDemand 100" winners will be honored at the AlwaysOn OnDemand Conference to be held April 19-21, at HP Worldwide Headquarters in Palo Alto, California.
