Cambridge, Mass. - May 6, 2009 - Dataupia Corporation today announced its status as a finalist of the "Red Herring 100 North America" award, a prestigious list honoring the year's most promising private technology ventures in North America.
The Red Herring editorial team selected the most innovative companies from a pool of 1,200. The nominees are evaluated on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technology innovation, quality of management, execution of strategy and integration into their respective industries.
This unique assessment of potential is complemented by a review of the actual track record and standing of a company, which allows Red Herring to see past the "buzz" and make the list an invaluable instrument for discovering and advocating the greatest business opportunities in the industry.
Dataupia empowers companies to access more data than ever before without having to change their existing infrastructure. The Company offers ease-of-use, low TCO and enables businesses to make more informed decisions, ultimately improving business agility and performance. Additionally, with organizations increasingly under pressure to adopt green computing practices, Dataupia announced that their solution actually reduces energy consumption and space requirements in the data center.

"At Dataupia, we strongly believe in helping businesses understand the importance and power of their data, and are overjoyed that Red Herring has chosen to honor us for our innovation. We are excited to receive this accolade and congratulate our fellow finalists."
"This year was especially difficult," said Alex Vieux, Publisher and CEO, Red Herring. "There were so many great companies producing really innovative and amazing products that we had a difficult time narrowing it down to 200. Now we're faced with the arduous task of selecting the final 100. We know that this year's crop will grow into some amazing companies that are sure to go far."
For over 10 years, The Red Herring 100 North America award, open to private technology companies headquartered in North America, has been given to the top 100 tech companies based upon their technological innovation, management strength, market size, investor record, customer acquisition and financial health. During the several months leading up to the announcement, hundreds of companies in the telecom, communications, security, Web 2.0, software, hardware, biotech and clean tech industries sent in their submissions to qualify for the award.
The CEOs of the 200 finalists are invited to present their winning strategies at the Red Herring Conference in San Diego, where the Red Herring Top 100 will be announced.
