Over the past several years, Cloud Computing has become one of the defining trends in technology, acting both as a catalyst to function of evolution in both enterprise and consumer markets, as well as fixed and mobile network environments. Judging from most analyst and research firm reports, the impact of cloud computing is only beginning to be felt. As questions surrounding reliability, security, compliance, and ROI are being answered, more and more businesses are moving their cloud applications from test scenarios to live production – as many cloud vendors have expressed, “people are doing ‘real’ things in the cloud now, not just testing and toying around with the ideas.”


Indeed, while vendors are as competitive as ever, the cloud has driven a parallel ecosystem, which has caused significant collaboration and partnership between vendors, as the entire industry seeks to fulfill the promise they have been preaching to the market. The second annual Cloud Computing Excellence Awards recognize the companies that have exhibited an innovation and excellence, bringing cloud-based products and services to market and helping generally advance this growing and significant technology and building a better experience for both corporate and consumer end users.


We congratulate this year’s winners, which we have broken down into two categories – communications and networking/IT.
