Yesterday, Spare Backup announced that it has been recognized as a global leader in online backup applications for home users and small businesses. The recognition comes in the form of being selected to join the Cloud Computing Journal’s ‘Top 250 Players in the Cloud Computing Ecosystem’. Consideration is widely independent and objective; thus, companies are considered on a merit-only basis. The list does not favor conference attendees of any particular event.

Cloud Computing Journal chose to include Spare Backup in its roll-call for the outstanding work it has achieved as a US-based provider of automated online backup applications. The roll-call also noted Spare Backup’s contribution to in-roads in Europe and for championing Cloud Computing with major UK retailers like Carphone Warehouse, Comet and DSGI PLC.

Cery Perle, CEO of Spare Backup, remarked, “My team and I are absolutely delighted to learn of our inclusion on the Top 250 Global Cloud companies list. This is an important milestone for us and is yet more recognition for our exhaustive endeavors in the Cloud Computing space. Spare Backup has built upon its growing reputation by adding new dimensions to its overall suite of products, such as its recent App Store, and we look forward to unveiling further innovations in the coming months. We wish Cloud Expo, Inc., the very best with its upcoming International Cloud Expo event in Prague later in June.”
