SAN JOSE, Calif., June 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Robin Systems, a Silicon Valley-based enterprise software company, announced today it was selected as a 2016 Red Herring Top 100 North America winner, a list honoring the year's most promising private technology ventures from the North American business region.
"Being named to the Red Herring Top 100 is great confirmation of the Robin team's efforts," said Premal Buch, chief executive officer of Robin. "Robin brings game-changing Application-Defined Data Center technology to enterprises facing a generational change in application architecture and operating environment. This recognition of our innovation is extremely gratifying."
Robin's container-based, compute and storage platform makes the boundaries among servers, virtual machines, and storage invisible to the applications. This maximizes hardware utilization, eliminates virtual machine and data sprawl, and dramatically simplifies application lifecycle. Robin is the first company to bring the containerization benefits to mission-critical enterprise applications, such as databases and Big data clusters, to enable high performance workload consolidation with the agility and flexibility previously available only to micro-applications.
Red Herring Top 100 America selects the winners from approximately 1,200 privately financed companies each year in the United States and Canada. Since 1996, Red Herring has kept tabs on such up-and-coming companies and was among the first to recognize companies such as Facebook, Google, Salesforce.com, Skype, Twitter, Yahoo and YouTube.
"In 2016, selecting the top achievers was extremely difficult," said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. "The variety, depth, disruption and traction we saw from the early stage companies to those with significant scale made it one of the toughest vintages to judge. The North America winners are representative of the amazing ecosystem that never ceases to astound, with new and experienced entrepreneurs continuing to push the barriers of innovation. As one of the winners, Robin should be proud of its accomplishment under such strong competition."
Red Herring's editorial staff evaluated companies on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technological innovation and intellectual property, DNA of the founders, business model, customer footprint and market penetration. This assessment of potential is complemented by a review of the track record and standing of startups relative to their sector peers, allowing Red Herring to see past the "buzz" and make the list a valuable instrument of discovery and advocacy for the most promising new business models in North America.
