Artisan Infrastructure Named a Finalist for the 2012 Red Herring 100 Global Award

Artisan Infrastructure announced it has been selected as a candidate for Red Herring's 2012 Top 100 Global award, a prestigious recognition honoring the year’s most audacious and far reaching private technology companies and entrepreneurs from across the globe.

Artisan Infrastructure’s wholesale only IaaS model has emerged as the wholesale IaaS industry leader, which has been widely validated through their adoption by MSPs, CSPs, ISVs, SaaS and PaaS providers who serve the channel and retail markets. Artisan Infrastructure’s Cornerstone virtual Private Data Center (vPDC) provides these entities the autonomy, control, security, and visibility, to build manage and own their own cloud solutions leveraging the best of breed, infinitely scalable, geo-diverse, wholesale IaaS partner.

The Red Herring editorial team selected the companies demonstrating the most innovative technologies and business models originating from over 1000 companies from over 40 nations. These companies, representing past Red Herring Asia, Europe and North America awards, are judged on a range of qualitative and quantitative metrics, including but not limited to, technology innovation, financial performance, growth criterion, management's execution standards, potential globalization of the strategy and market share improvement.

“Technology companies are becoming the bright spot in the economic outlook based on their increasing role within macro-economic environments,” stated Alex Vieux, Chairman of Red Herring. “2012 has confirmed the sector's vibrant activity and its resilience to widespread economic problems. An unprecedented number of entrepreneurs are attempting to jump ahead of the competition and aspire to make a difference. Breakthroughs obsolete each other faster than ever before. Artisan Infrastructure has performed exceptionally in its field and strongly deserves to be singled out as one of the Red Herring Global Finalists. At this stage, we are left with the daunting task to select the best qualified companies for the 2012 Top 100 Global Award."

“We’re humbled and honored to receive this prestigious award from Red Herring,” said Brian Hierholzer, CEO of Artisan Infrastructure. “Our rapid success, and Red Herring’s recognition of our wholesale only IaaS model, validates the necessity for a pure play, wholesale, IaaS partner that has no interest in retail subscribers or the solutions they subscribe to. Furthermore, Artisan Infrastructure does not sell any cloud based solutions like PaaS or SaaS, our customers do. We feel the only way to enable our service provider customers is to draw a clear line in the sand. We won’t compete with them when it comes to any solution whatsoever. There is no in between; either you are a competitor, or you are a partner. Our customers have chosen Artisan Infrastructure because they want to do business with a true partner, not a competitive threat. The entire team here at Artisan Infrastructure wants to extend our sincerest thanks to our current wholesale and alliance partners, without their strong support and assistance we wouldn’t be here today.”

The Finalists are invited to present their winning strategies at the Red Herring Global forum in Los Angeles, November 27-29 2012. The Top 100 winners will be announced at a special awards ceremony on November 29 at the event.
