DURHAM, North Carolina – June 18, 2015 – Percona, the company that delivers enterprise-class MySQL® and MongoDB® solutions and services, today announced that Percona has been selected as a Red Herring Top 100 North America award winner. Red Herring announced the Top 100 North America award winners in recognition of the leading private companies from the region, celebrating these startups’ innovations and technologies across their respective industries.
Red Herring Top 100 America enlists outstanding entrepreneurs and promising companies. It selects the award winners from approximately 1,200 privately financed companies each year in the U.S. and Canada. Since 1996, Red Herring has kept tabs on these up-and-comers. Red Herring editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, Skype, Salesforce.com, YouTube, Palo Alto Networks and eBay would change the way we live and work.
Red Herring’s editorial staff evaluated companies on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technological innovation and intellectual property, DNA of the founders, business model, customer footprint and addressable market.”
Alex Vieux, Publisher and CEO of Red Herring
“In 2015, selecting the top achievers was by no means a small feat. In fact, we had the toughest time in years because so many entrepreneurs had crossed significant milestones so early. But after much thought, rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of candidates from across North America to the North America winners. We believe Percona embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. Percona should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was very strong.”
Peter Zaitsev, Co-Founder and CEO of Percona
“I believe our selection as a Red Herring Top 100 North America winner reflects not only our innovative approach to our products and services, but also our industry leadership as demonstrated through our Percona Live conferences, the Percona Performance Blog, and the recent acquisition of Tokutek, which has positioned us as the only company delivering enterprise-class solutions for both MySQL and MongoDB across traditional and cloud-based platforms.”
