Cast Iron Systems Named AlwaysOn Global 250 Cloud and Infrastructure Category Winner

SaaS and Cloud Integration Leader Judged Most Innovative and Promising Private Technology Company of All Cloud and Infrastructure Nominees

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 07/16/09 -- Cast Iron Systems, The #1 SaaS and Cloud Integration Company(TM), today announced that it has been selected as the most innovative and promising company in the cloud and infrastructure category of the 2009 AlwaysOn Global 250 of top private emerging-technology companies. The AlwaysOn Global 250 Award recognizes the innovators and disrupters from all technology sectors that are creating new business opportunities in high-growth markets.

"It's no secret that technology and innovation are vital to bringing our country out of economic recession," said Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn. "The companies on this year's list not only have created innovative technologies that solve real business problems, but also have stimulated economic growth through the generation of new jobs. I congratulate every winner selected for this year's list and Cast Iron for its leadership in the critical cloud and infrastructure category."

Venture capitalists, investment bankers, and other industry insiders nominated more than 800 technology companies for the AlwaysOn Global 250, from which AlwaysOn editors selected the winners with assistance from KPMG's emerging business practice, KPMG VC Practice. Cast Iron was chosen based on demonstrated growth, market potential, innovation value, and customer adoption.

"It is a great honor to be recognized as the most innovative and promising cloud and infrastructure company as we work with megabrands such as, Amazon, Google, HP, Microsoft and Oracle to accelerate adoption of cloud-based applications and services," said Ken Comée, CEO of Cast Iron Systems. "With 11 quarters of continuous growth, Cast Iron has proven that it has the vision, performance, and transformative technology necessary to help lead the cloud revolution."

Comée is speaking at the AlwaysOn & STVP Summit at Stanford on The Rainmakers in Cloud Computing panel. Executives from five diverse companies will debate whether technology megabrands or startups will best leverage the Cloud to create the greatest value for investors.

The summit is co-presented by the Stanford Technology Ventures Program and will highlight the significant economic, political, and commercial trends affecting global technology industries. Cast Iron will be recognized along with other AlwaysOn Global 250 winners on the opening night of the summit, which is taking place at Stanford University in Palo Alto, California, July 28th through 30th.
