GroundWork Open Source Inc. (GWOS, http://www.gwos.com/), the leader in commercial open source systems and network management software, today announced that it has been chosen by AlwaysOn as one of the OnDemand Top 100 winners. Inclusion in the OnDemand 100 signifies leadership amongst its peers and game-changing approaches and technologies that are likely to disrupt existing markets and entrenched players. GWOS was specially selected by the AlwaysOn editorial team and industry experts spanning the globe based on a set of five criteria: innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value, and media buzz.

GWOS and the OnDemand Top 100 companies will be honored at AlwaysOn’s OnDemand event on April 19th, 2010, at Hewlett-Packard’s Worldwide Headquarters in Palo Alto, CA.

This two-and-a-half-day executive event features CEO presentations and high-level debates on how the Internet is disrupting how companies—from small businesses to large enterprises—create, store, distribute, analyze, and take advantage of their mission-critical data.

“As the digital information created by businesses continues to explode at astronomical rates, the need to store, manage, analyze, and share this information is becoming extremely challenging,” said Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn. “We congratulate this year’s OnDemand 100 for providing the technology platforms and services needed to manage and leverage this new era of information complexity and overload.”

The OnDemand 100 winners were selected from among hundreds of other technology companies nominated by investors, bankers, journalists, and industry insiders. The AlwaysOn editorial team conducted a rigorous three-month selection process to finalize the 2010 list.

GWOS’ flagship system and network management solution, GroundWork Monitor Enterprise, delivers complete IT system performance and availability information through a single pane of glass. Enterprise Edition provides OS, middleware, application and end user measurement and monitoring across all environments including the traditional datacenter and the cloud. Based on the Nagios® 3 Core, Cacti and a dozen other popular open source projects, Enterprise Edition’s fortified, open architecture delivers an extensible and scalable solution that easily interoperates with IT Operations tools. Within the last six months, GWOS has quadrupled the customer base with the most recent release of Enterprise Edition, new cloud and virtual appliance distributions, and user experience and functionality improvements.

“GWOS is honored to be recognized by a great organization like AlwaysOn as an OnDemand Top 100 winner. For GWOS customers providing OnDemand solutions, the value of system uptime and dependability defines their success,” said Peter Jackson, CEO at GWOS.
