Following hot on the heels of our recent Citrix Awards we are pleased to say that UShareSoft was rewarded as one on the top european 25 cloud start-ups during the 2012 European Tech Tour in Lausanne, Switzerland. Taking place during the Cloud and Big Data Summit, the Tech Tour contest received more than 250 submissions, and was a unique opportunity for UShareSoft to meet with Europe's top venture capitalists.
Participants were selected based on the value proposition and competitive positioning of their products. UShareSoft's selection is thus a sign of high recognition of UForge as one of the tech leaders in the marke in the fields of cloud image template management and enterprise IT app stores.
"Cloud computing is still in the early stages of adoption and demand will continue to grow," noted Alban Richard, CEO of UShareSoft, in this exclusive Q&A with Cloud Expo Conference Chair Jeremy Geelan. "Pricing, however, will vary," Richard continued. "Many cloud providers are playing a volume game and will reduce prices for compute, storage and network resources to meet the needs of price-sensitive customers."
