BELLEVUE, Wash., Oct. 30 -- Xeround Inc., a provider of real-time database virtualization software, today announced that it was named a Finalist in the "Best New Company of the Year" category in The 5th Annual Stevie Awards for Women in Business.
With over three years of research and development and its first customer deployments underway, Xeround is emerging as the leader in database virtualization software. Xeround's patented flagship Intelligent Data Grid (IDG) is an innovative new technology that unifies databases across multiple networks and businesses in real-time.

"It is an honor for Xeround to be recognized as a prominent emerging company," said Charlotte Yarkoni, CEO for Xeround. "From Xeround's inception, we have worked hard to revolutionize the way data is managed and we look forward to continuing that mission for our customers."
Headquartered in Bellevue, Wash., Xeround's top-notch executive team is led by Yarkoni, a 15-year veteran of the telecommunications industry. Prior to joining Xeround, she held management positions at Amdocs, AT&T, BellSouth Cellular, Cingular Wireless and IBM. At Xeround, Yarkoni has assembled a management team with a proven track record in delivering innovative solutions to the telecommunications, networking, and information technology sectors.
In addition, Xeround is backed by some of the most prominent venture capital firms in the US and Israel. The company recently closed a Series B round of $16 million led by Ignition Partners and Trilogy Partnership with participation from existing investors Benchmark Capital and Giza Venture Capital.
More than 1,200 entries were submitted for consideration in The Stevie Awards for Women in Business -- hailed as the world's premier business awards.
"Being named a Finalist in The Stevie Awards for Women in Business is an important achievement," said Michael Gallagher, president of the Stevie Awards. "It means that independent business executives have agreed that the nominee is worthy of recognition."

Large-scale, worldwide scientific initiatives rely on some cloud-based system to both coordinate efforts and manage computational efforts at peak times that cannot be contained within the combined in-house HPC resources. Last week at Google I/O, Brookhaven National Lab’s Sergey Panitkin discussed the role of the Google Compute Engine in providing computational support to ATLAS, a detector of high-energy particles at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).
Frank Ding, engineering analysis & technical computing manager at Simpson Strong-Tie, discussed the advantages of utilizing the cloud for occasional scientific computing, identified the obstacles to doing so, and proposed workarounds to some of those obstacles.
The private industry least likely to adopt public cloud services for data storage are financial institutions. Holding the most sensitive and heavily-regulated of data types, personal financial information, banks and similar institutions are mostly moving towards private cloud services – and doing so at great cost.
