“The world of the cloud is beginning to live up to its promise of expanding and enhancing almost every sector of the technology world. Public, private, and hybrid, the cloud infrastructure companies that can provide the most robust, always-on performance are the ones that are propelling us into a completely new digital age,” says Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn. “This year’s OnDemand 100 winners represent the companies that are not only providing the space to develop daring, indispensible applications for a growing and increasingly mobile universe, they’re making sure that everyone has their information, data, media, and apps whenever and wherever they happen to be. The innovations these companies are developing go beyond consumer, beyond business enterprise—it’s the future, in the palm of your hand, on your desktop, in your car. The on-demand paradigm is computing, and the Global Silicon Valley has never been more ready to take on its challenge.
