Top 250 “Players” in the Cloud – What Companies Would You Add?

A list is out that gives a summary of the top 250 players in the cloud computing ecosystem. The list has been published before but it’s a decent enough resource that we believe it is worth mention.

Jeremy Geelan wrote the list in preparation for the Cloud Expo in November. Geelan is President of the company that puts on the event.

Geelan first published the list last January. At that time, the list included 150 companies.

He writes:

“I have increased it from the ‘mere’ 150 I identified back in January of this year, to 250, testimony – as if any were needed! – to the fierce and continuing growth of the “Elastic IT” paradigm throughout the world of enterprise computing.”

The list is a work in progress. There are notable missing players in the social enterprise space such as Success Factors, Terracotta and Sugar CRM. But the reality is this list could be updated every day and be at 1,000 in no time. He does calls those listed as the most active players in the market. But we are uncertain how he defines what “most active,” means.

Several companies on the list are not widely recognized. Here are three:

Aptana – “Aptana has recently beta-released Aptana Cloud, which it says “is architected to complement Cloud infrastructure providers like Amazon, Google, Joyent and others.” Targeted at rapid development, in particular web applications that need to scale rapidly (think Facebook applications etc.), Aptana cloud plugs into the Aptana IDE.”

Greenqloud – “Based in Iceland, Greenqloud’s founders call it “the world’s first truly green public compute cloud.” It uses only clean and renewable geothermal and hydro energy sources to power its infrastructure. Being in Iceland there is obviously an abundance of geothermal energy and free cooling but Iceland is also a network hub with redundant low latency multi-terabit fiber connections to N-America and Europe making it much cheaper to serve both markets at once.”

Intalio – “Led by the charismatic Ismael Ghalimi (Co-Founder & CEO), Intalio has since 1999 kept itself at the Enterprise IT forefont, and now provides what it calls “an integrated portfolio of applications for cloud computing.” The Intalio|Cloud offering is available through three editions, and the company now calls itself “The Private Cloud Company”.

Is there a company that you would add? Leave a tweet for Geelan. and he will consider it for any future round up.
