PROVO, Utah (May 28, 2013) – Adaptive Computing, the largest provider of policy-based optimization software for private cloud and High-Performance Computing (HPC) environments, today announced it has been named a Red Herring Top 100 Company in North America for 2013.

The Red Herring 100 Awards recognize and identify the most promising private ventures from around the world and are widely credited as one of the industry’s more prestigious recognitions.

“We are thrilled to be recognized by Red Herring with this honor,” said Rob Clyde, CEO of Adaptive Computing. “There is massive waste throughout the world due to low compute utilization rates, which currently stand at about eight percent, meaning over 90 percent of dollars spent on servers are just being wasted. With Adaptive’s patented technologies, we are radically increasing these utilization rates, and being named to this list is a great validation of our efforts.”

With a workforce of 130, Adaptive is the leader in policy-based optimization, and manages many of the world’s largest computing installations with its patented Moab® policy-based optimization software for private clouds and HPC clusters. Adaptive’s Moab is unique in its ability to apply multiple policy and constraints simultaneously, resulting in drastically higher system utilization rates, saving its customers millions of dollars per year in large deployments.
