SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - May 18, 2011) - 10gen, which sponsors leading open source non-relational database MongoDB, and GigaOM, a leading business media company, today announced that 10gen has been named to the inaugural Structure 50 list, the first industry ranking by GigaOM of the top cloud computing and infrastructure companies.

Selected through a rigorous review by GigaOM editors, the Structure 50 companies encompass a wide range of innovators -- from rising stars like DotCloud and Nimbula, to industry leaders such as Akamai, Cisco, and Apple. A full list of winners can be found on the Structure 50 website.

"The companies in the Structure 50 are changing the face of computing. Editors at GigaOM reviewed hundreds of companies to select these top 50 cloud computing innovators based on their product innovation, market impact, technology development, and visionary leadership," said Derrick Harris, GigaOM Structure Editor and Conference Chair. "The inaugural Structure 50 list recognizes the enormous contribution these leading companies are making to business, technology, and society."

"We are honored to be recognized by GigaOM as a top cloud computing and infrastructure provider in the first annual Structure 50 List," says Max Schireson, president at 10gen. "Recognition such as this is not only an indicator of the phenomenal growth MongoDB continues to experience, it is also a measurement of the evolving database needs for Fortune 500 and leading Web 2.0 companies. We continue to focus on providing customers with the cutting edge database technology they expect -- a combination of scalability, performance and software development agility."

All of the Structure 50 companies will be recognized at GigaOM Structure 2011, the industry's most influential cloud computing conference. Structure 2011 will take place June 22-23, 2011 in San Francisco at the Mission Bay Conference Center.
