VKernel Named a Byte and Switch 'Top 10 Storage Startup to Watch'

PORTSMOUTH, N.H., July 22 /PRNewswire/ -- VKernel Corporation, a provider of easy-to-use and quick-to-deploy virtual appliances for managing virtual server environments, announced today that the company has been named by the online storage networking news site, Byte and Switch, as one of its "Top 10 Startups to Watch." The decisions by Byte and Switch were based on editorial decision making, including extensive reporting and talks with users, analysts, and suppliers.

"We're excited to be recognized by Byte and Switch as a top 10 startup as this validates our importance in the virtual data center storage market," said Alex Bakman, founder and CEO of VKernel.

According to Byte and Switch, "VKernel believes that it is one of the leaders in this corner (systems management) of the virtualization market and explained that its size and business agility make it a key player for customers that are looking to rapidly virtualize their data centers."
