PernixData Earns Top Spot in San Francisco Business Times' "Best Place to Work" List

Company Recognized as #1 Small Business Employer in the San Francisco Bay Area, Adding to a Banner Year of Distinctions

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 21, 2014) - PernixData, the leader in server-side storage intelligence, today announced that the company has been named to San Francisco Business Times' 11th annual "Best Places to Work" list, ranking #1 in the "small business" category. The list is a compilation of the top 125 Bay Area employers who were selected out of nearly 450 nominees based on employee survey feedback on several areas, including corporate culture, opportunities for growth, and benefits.

PernixData was recognized for its vibrant, highly-motived working environment, an approachable and supportive management team, and generous benefits such as a full medical coverage, unlimited vacation time, catered lunches, game rooms, and weekly social gatherings for all employees.

"PernixData is passionate about building a world-class team and the company culture essential to becoming a dominant force at the nexus of virtualization and storage," said PernixData's CEO Poojan Kumar. "We are incredibly blessed to be able to work with some of the brightest minds in the industry. We encourage our employees to work hard and innovate while keeping their focus on solving real problems, but also have fun while doing so. We are thrilled that the San Francisco Business Times and similar outlets recognize these virtues and distinguish the company as a great place to work."
