List Highlights Hottest Tech Startups Impacting the IT Channel, Technology Industry
[IRVINE, CA: July 21st, 2014] – RapidScale, a leader in cloud computing solutions, announced today it has been recognized as one of 2014’s hottest emerging technology vendors by CRN, the top news source for solution providers and the IT channel. The annual Emerging Vendors list identifies up-and-coming technology vendors that have introduced innovative new products, creating opportunities for channel partners in North America to create high-margin, cutting-edge solutions for their customers.
RapidScale no longer sees the computer as being just about applications and operating systems. They see it as a virtual application platform built to deliver any application on any device, anywhere in the world. In order to achieve a revolutionary solution, they had to focus on building the business computer from the ground up.
RapidScale has established an advanced cloud computing solution that combines simplicity with ingenuity. Its products include CloudDesktop (an advanced Desktop as a Service solution), CloudServer (Infrastructure as a Service), CloudRecovery (disaster recovery backup and failover for businesses of all sizes) and the all-in-one CloudOffice solution.
CloudOffice, the “Next Generation of Business” computer, is a ground breaking solution that brings together core business applications and business vertical applications. CloudOffice is application agnostic and does not have the inherent limitations that existing solutions like Server Hosted Virtual Desktop (SHVD) have. RapidScale has also layered in a fully managed CloudCompliance application to meet business compliance requirements.
