Winner of Red Herring Top 100 North America Catches Judges Eye Once Again with Innovative and Deployment-Proven DxEnterprise Windows Container Management Software


Fort Collins, CO | November 25, 2015

DH2i™ Company, recently named a Cool Vendor by Gartner in the “Cool Vendors in Servers and Virtualization, 20151” report, today announced it has been named a Red Herring Top 100 Global Winner. The Top 100 Global Awards are the culmination of a year’s work by the Red Herring editorial team. They scour the globe and review thousands of privately held companies that offer innovative, disruptive technologies combined with proven deployment success and business plan execution. The finalists for the Top 100 Global Awards were the regional competition winners, such as DH2i, from the events that took place in Europe, North America, and Asia. Once again, DH2i stood out amongst this notable roster and was recognized for its DxEnterprise™ container management software for Microsoft Windows Server environments.

“Choosing the companies with the strongest potential was by no means a small feat,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. “After rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of candidates from across the globe to the Top 100 Winners. We believe DH2i embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. DH2i should be proud of its accomplishments.”

“The Red Herring Top 100 Global Award is another enviable feather in the DH2i cap – rounding out what has been an incredible year of industry recognition for our company. We were named a Red Herring Top 100 North America winner, a Gartner ‘Cool Vendor’, a Computer Technology Review MVP Award winner and received high marks during a recent ESG Lab test,” said Don Boxley, CEO and Co-Founder, DH2i. “We believe this is a testament to the fact that DH2i is solving a very real and very expensive datacenter challenge – that is, how to better manage enterprise applications across Windows Server environments.”

DxEnterprise leverages a first-of-its-kind container technology that enables workload and data portability (what DH2i calls InstanceMobility) and high availability (HA) for Windows Server applications, services and file shares. DH2i’s pioneering container technology creates a framework for orchestrating datacenter management, high availability/disaster tolerance (DR) and policy-based SLA management. DxEnterprise is the only Windows container technology that leverages native Windows Server file system (NTFS) and shared or replicated storage technology to coordinate access to a pool of disk resources in the cluster. This provides consistent disk presentation no matter which host the container is active on. DxEnterprise can support any current version or edition of SQL Server and OS across any physical, virtual or hybrid infrastructure.
