Honored with Stevie® Awards in 2022 American Business Awards®

SAN JOSE, Calif. – May 10, 2022 – Cloud networking pioneer Alkira today announced it was named the winner of two bronze level Stevie® Awards, in the Cloud Infrastructure and Startup of the Year – Consumer Services Industries categories of the 2022 American Business Awards®.

Alkira’s Cloud Network as-a-Service was recognized for its unique cloud infrastructure approach. It’s the only company to unify multiple clouds, sites, and users via an enterprise network built entirely in the public cloud. Alkira’s Cloud Exchange Points automate the creation, management, and operation of the global network. This approach allows network teams to move faster, manage less and save more.

Alkira was also recognized as Startup of the Year based on its rapid growth. The company’s growth is fueled by enterprise adoption of the cloud, and by the need to modernize the network.

“Winning two Stevie awards at this year’s American Business Awards helps emphasize the growing need for organizations to re-evaluate their cloud infrastructures and reduce the IT bloat that has crept in over the last two to three years,” said Amir Khan, Alkira CEO. “Alkira is focused on helping enterprises automate and simplify their cloud infrastructures, so they can spin up networks almost anywhere in the world.”

More than 3,700 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories, including Startup of the Year, Executive of the Year, Best New Product or Service of the Year, Marketing Campaign of the Year, Thought Leader of the Year, and App of the Year, among others.

The American Business Awards are the U.S.A.’s premier business awards program. All organizations operating in the U.S.A. are eligible to submit nominations – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small.

Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word meaning “crowned,” the awards will be presented to winners at a gala ceremony at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York on Monday, June 13.
