San Francisco, Calif., July 13, 2017 - Databricks, provider of the leading Unified Analytics Platform built by the team who created Apache Spark™, was recently named to the Forbes 2017 Cloud 100 list. The definitive list of the top 100 private cloud companies in the world is published by Forbes in collaboration with Bessemer Venture Partners.

“It is an honor to be recognized by Bessemer Venture Partners, Forbes and Salesforce Ventures as a top 100 private cloud company,” said Ali Ghodsi, cofounder and chief executive officer at Databricks. “The cloud is transforming the way businesses across all industries drive innovation and business outcomes. We're humbled and delighted to be a part of this prestigious group of cloud providers."

As part of the rigorous selection process for the Forbes 2017 Cloud 100, Forbes’ data partner, Bessemer Venture Partners, received hundreds of submissions from the top cloud startups. With that data, the Forbes Cloud 100 judge panel, made up of a majority of public cloud company CEOs, was then responsible for selecting and ranking the top 100 companies from all over the world. The evaluation process involved four factors: estimated valuation (30%), operating metrics (20%), people & culture (15%) and market leadership (35%), which the judge panel then weighed to select, score and rank the winners.

“Our inaugural Cloud 100 list showed the tech and venture capital community just how many standout private cloud companies there are to watch, and this year’s list is no exception,” said Forbes editor of the Cloud 100 list Alex Konrad. “Forbes has a keen eye for businesses, and combining that with Bessemer Venture Partners and Salesforce Ventures’ deep knowledge of the cloud industry, any company’s inclusion on the Forbes 2017 Cloud 100 list is cause to celebrate.”

The Forbes 2017 Cloud 100 and 20 Rising Stars lists are published online at www.forbes.com/cloud100 and will appear in the July 27, 2017 issue of Forbes magazine.
