CLIFTON PARK, NYApprenda, creator of Apprenda, the foremost application server, purpose-built to solve the architecture, business and operational complexities of delivering software-as-a-service, today announced it was named one of the Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors by Everything Channel’s CRN.

The comprehensive list highlights the most innovative cloud vendors and solutions for the channel – including storage cloud offerings, security cloud offerings, cloud apps, cloud infrastructure and cloud platforms to assist solution providers in navigating the cloud phenomena successfully.

“This year’s Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors list is based on a cloud vendor’s approach to creating an innovative product, or an innovative approach to supporting solution providers in the IT channel,” said Kelley Damore, Vice President and Editorial Director CRN. “Specifically, these Cloud vendors help resellers transform themselves into true service providers and help organizations and enterprises take advantage of the ease, flexibility, scalability, elasticity and cost savings that leveraging cloud computing has to offer.”
