AUSTIN, Texas -- December 11, 2012

Artisan Infrastructure, the wholesale infrastructure as a service provider,
today announced it has been named a Red Herring's 2012 Top 100 Global Company.
The Red Herring Top 100 Global awards recognize the leading private companies
from North America, Europe and Asia.

Artisan Infrastructure’s wholesale only IaaS model has emerged as the
wholesale IaaS industry leader, which has been widely validated through their
adoption by MSPs, CSPs, ISVs, SaaS and PaaS providers who serve the channel
and retail markets. Artisan Infrastructure’s Cornerstone virtual Private Data
Center (vPDC) provides these entities the autonomy, control, security, and
visibility, to build, manage and own their own cloud solutions leveraging the
best of breed, infinitely scalable, geo-diverse, wholesale IaaS partner.

Red Herring's Top 100 Global list has become a mark of distinction for
identifying promising new companies and entrepreneurs. Red Herring editors
were among the first to recognize that companies such as Facebook, Twitter,
Google, Yahoo, Skype,, YouTube, and eBay would change the way
we live and work.

"Choosing the companies with the strongest potential was by no means a small
feat," said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. "After rigorous
contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of
candidates from across Global to the Top 100 Winners. We believe Artisan
Infrastructure embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a
successful entrepreneurial venture. Artisan Infrastructure should be proud of
its accomplishment, as the competition was the strongest it has ever been."

Red Herring's editorial staff evaluated the companies on both quantitative and
qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technology innovation,
management quality, strategy, and market penetration. This assessment of
potential is complemented by a review of the track record and standing of
startups relative to their peers, allowing Red Herring to see past the "buzz"
and make the list a valuable instrument of discovery and advocacy for the most
promising new business models from around the world.
