Although most of us often hear news concerning Apple, Google, and Microsoft, we usually hear far less about several other important firms that are highly rated both by both their business peers and employees. Among these other companies are Rackspace, Red Hat, and Riverbed. If you haven’t done business with any of them yet, you’re very likely to do so in the near future.
Here’s a bit more information about these three truly innovative and highly respected high-tech companies.
Basic Company Data on Three Lesser-Known High-Tech Companies
- Rackspace. According to its website, Rackspace helps European and North America companies manage or “architect” their cloud. As most companies doing business over the Internet are aware, “cloud computing means storing and accessing data and programs over the Internet instead of your computer's hard drive. The cloud is just a metaphor for the Internet.” Clients can choose between contracting for Rackspace’s “managed operations” service level which involves handling day-to-day cloud management issues -- or the company’s “managed infrastructure” service. The latter means that Rackspace engineers “will help architect and deploy an environment that's optimized” for each client’s specific needs. If you’re interested in keeping up with Rackspace’s weekly news, you can easily do so by regularly visiting the company’s blog page;
- Red Hat. This American multinational software company was founded back in 1993 and has been publicly owned since August of 1999. It employs over 6,100 workers and is headquartered in Raleigh, North Carolina. According to its website, it offers training, consulting, and certification, among other services. Its partners on a rich array of projects have included: Cisco, Dell, IBM, and HP. Red Hat’s software portfolio can help you with your cloud storage, middleware, operating platform, and virtualization. Its 80 offices are located in over 30 different countries. According to a New York Times July 10, 2014 blog, “Microsoft, IBM and Red Hat, along with others, are joining Google in creating open source software to manage computing workloads across thousands of computer servers. Amazon Web Services, by far the largest cloud computing company, was notably absent from [this] announcement;”
- Riverbed. According to its website, this company refers to itself as the “leader in Application Performance Infrastructure,” reporting more than $1 billion in annual revenue. The company says it has renamed its products “to better describe what they do and reinforce how they are part of an integrated solution called the ‘Riverbed Application Performance Platform . . . [which is the most complete platform] for location-independent computing to ensure flawless application performance and the best user experience.” Stated more simply, “Riverbed makes hardware and software that helps enterprise networks run faster.”
In addition to being highly sought after as business partners, all three of these companies have been ranked among “The 22 Best Tech Companies to Work For,” according to their employees.
