RainStor Selected by AlwaysOn as an OnDemand Top 100 Winner

Company Recognized for Creating New Opportunities in Cloud Computing and SaaS

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - April 13, 2010) - RainStor, an infrastructure software company that provides the leading repository for historical structured data, today announced that it has been chosen by AlwaysOn as one of the OnDemand Top 100 winners. Inclusion in the OnDemand 100 signifies leadership amongst its peers and game-changing approaches and technologies that are likely to disrupt existing markets and entrenched players. RainStor was hand-selected by the AlwaysOn editorial team and industry experts for its innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value and overall media buzz.

"It's an honor to be recognized by AlwaysOn as a pioneer in the technology industry," said John Bantleman, CEO of RainStor. "Being a part of this list further validates RainStor's innovative approach to reducing the cost and complexity of preserving massive amounts of information in the enterprise and the cloud, while ensuring on-demand access and compliance. We intend to continue our leadership by enabling our partners to bring cost-effective, easy-to-use cloud offerings to their customers."

RainStor and the OnDemand Top 100 companies will be honored at AlwaysOn's OnDemand event on April 19, 2010, at Hewlett-Packard's Worldwide Headquarters in Palo Alto, Calif. Additionally, John Bantleman, CEO of RainStor, will present at the CEO Showcase on Tuesday, April 20, 2010, at 10 a.m. PT. This two-and-a-half-day executive event features CEO presentations and high-level debates on how the cloud is changing the way companies -- from small businesses to large enterprises -- manage and take advantage of their mission-critical data.

"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."

The OnDemand 100 winners were selected from among hundreds of technology companies nominated by investors, bankers, journalists, and industry insiders.
