The Week Ending Aug. 28
Topping this week's roundup of companies that came to win is startup Velostrata's launch of a potentially ground-breaking product that could boost the hybrid cloud market.
Also making the list is Intel's savvy hire of a new channel chief for its security business; NetSuite's recruitment of a key Microsoft channel partner; Hortonworks' acquisition of a big data startup; and Veeam's plans for its upcoming disaster recovery cloud service.
Not everyone in the IT industry was making smart moves this week, of course. For a rundown of companies that were unfortunate, unsuccessful or just didn't make good decisions, check out this week's Five Companies That Had A Rough Week roundup.
