VirtualSharp Software Selected as a CloudBeat 2011 Innovation Showdown Finalist

Next Generation Disaster Recovery Provider Outshines More Than 70 Nominees

MCLEAN, VA--(Marketwire - Nov 14, 2011) - VirtualSharp Software, provider of next generation of automated Disaster Recovery solutions for private and public clouds, today announced that it was chosen as one of the hottest companies in the cloud space by a panel of experts and advisors to compete in the CloudBeat 2011 Innovation Showdown. As one of 10 finalists, VirtualSharp will present its technology and new product to more than 500 influencers, investors and media live at CloudBeat 2011 on Thursday, December 1, 2011.

"In these 10 finalists, we were looking for companies with products that are using the cloud in a disruptive way," said Sean Ludwig at VentureBeat. "The more revolutionary the company's idea, the better its chances. Nominations included startups as well as established companies with brilliant new ideas."

The cloud era heralds much higher expectations for service uptime than legacy Disaster Recovery tools can provide. VirtualSharp, an elite-level VMware Technology Alliance Partner, developed a new way to address Disaster Recovery through process orchestration across data centers. VirtualSharp's technology was not just designed in a lab but field-developed based upon needs of early adopters of VMware in the 2006-2008 timeframe. Early demand is strong, and VirtualSharp already has customers across several sectors, both in SMBs and major enteprises, including two of the world's largest financial companies.

"We are excited to be a part of CloudBeat 2011 Innovation Showdown," said Carlos Escapa, Co-Founder and CEO of VirtualSharp. "We have been laser focused on developing our product and serving the needs of our early customers who now test their Disaster Recovery processes every day. We are now ready to make our product more generally available, and this event is a great platform to launch at."

Hosted by VentureBeat, CloudBeat 2011 is taking place November 30 – December 1, 2011 at the Hotel Sofitel in Redwood City, CA. Using a customer-centric approach, CloudBeat will offer actionable lessons and networking opportunities as industry leaders define the key processes and architectures that companies must put in place in order to survive and prosper.
