Cirba Chosen As One Of Canada’s Select “Companies-To-Watch” In The 2009 Deloitte Technology Fast 50™ Awards

Pioneer in analytics for virtualization and data center transformations recognized for market leadership.

Toronto, Ontario – October 1, 2009 Cirba Inc., a leader in data center intelligence software, won a coveted Companies-to-Watch Award, one of four separate awards categories that make up the 2009 Deloitte Technology Fast 50™ Awards, the preeminent technology awards program in Canada. Cirba’s data center intelligence software provides an analytics platform for planning transformations, including virtualization, and making capacity and workload placement related decisions. Only Cirba provides a unique rules-driven approach that considers all the constraints critical for these kinds of analyses, ensuring organizations can transform infrastructure quickly, safely, and cost-effectively.

The Companies-to-Watch Award honors early-stage Canadian technology companies in business less than five years. These companies exemplify many of the winning characteristics of Deloitte Technology Fast 50™ ranked companies, which are judged using a longer track record.

“Cirba’s early stage success can be attributed to our unique position in the virtualization space. No other company can provide the depth of analytics needed for successful transformations,” said Gerry Smith, president and CEO, Cirba, Inc. “Additionally, some of the biggest names in the data center, including IBM GTS, and Unisys, have standardized on Cirba – using our analytics to drive their consulting services around virtualization. This award validates our innovative approach to transformational and capacity analysis, and we look forward to continued success.”

“Companies-to-Watch award winners frequently go on to score high rankings in the Deloitte Technology Fast 50TM once they have a five-year track record,” said John Ruffolo, National Leader, Technology, Media & Telecommunications Industry Group, Deloitte. “Cirba has quickly distinguished itself for its innovative technology and entrepreneurship, and this award recognizes its potential as a future leader in the Canadian technology industry.”

To win the Companies-to-Watch award, companies must display the kind of management expertise and superior technology that mark a successful early-stage company poised for continued growth.
