Company recognised for its automated online backup and inroads into retail in Europe

PALM DESERT, Calif., June 3 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Spare Backup (OTC Bulletin Board: SPBU) today announces that it has been recognized as a global leader in online backup applications for home users and small businesses by being selected to join the Cloud Computing Journal 'Top 250 Players in the Cloud Computing Ecosystem'. Companies are considered on a merit-only basis to be worthy of a place on the list, which is prepared and published in an A-Z format so that the roll-call lists companies in no particular ranking.  Crucially, the roll-call does not favor conference attendees of any particular event or paid-for advertisers and is therefore widely independent and objective in nature. 

Cloud Computing Journal is an industry leading publication of SYS-CON Media, founded in 1994, is the publisher of i-technology (Internet technology) magazines, electronic newsletters, and accompanying i-technology breaking news, education and information Web portals. In 2001 the company added an events business, SYS-CON Events (trade shows, conferences, and education), and most recently has founded a spinout, Cloud Expo, Inc., to house its successful International Cloud Expo conference and expo series.

Spare Backup, Inc. has been recognized as a worthy addition to Cloud Computing Journal roll-call of global leading technology companies for the outstanding work it has achieved as a US-based provider of automated, online backup applications for home users and small businesses. The roll-call also noted the outstanding inroads in Europe Spare Backup has made; and for championing Cloud Computing with major UK retailers like Carphone Warehouse, Comet and DSGI PLC.

Cery Perle, CEO of Spare Backup explains, "My team and I are absolutely delighted to learn of our inclusion on the Top 250 Global Cloud companies list.  This is an important milestone for us and is yet more recognition for our exhaustive endeavours in the Cloud Computing space.  Spare Backup has built upon its growing reputation by adding new dimensions to its overall suite of products, such as its recent App Store, and we look forward to unveiling further innovations in the coming months.  We wish Cloud Expo, Inc., the very best with its upcoming International Cloud Expo event in Prague later in June."

Jeremy Geelan, Conference Chair of the Cloud Expo series of events, "We have an expansive research team that enables us to track all companies active in Cloud space.  Spare Backup has been on our radar for some time due to the interesting work they have been doing in Europe with leading retailers, their App Store and their innovative approach to backing up individuals and small business data.  We are therefore pleased to add Spare Backup Inc. to our global roll-call of 'Top 250 Cloud Players.'"

Cloud Expo Europe 2010 will run in Prague, Czech Republic, from June 21-22 - http://www.cloudexpo-europe.com/general/sponsors0610.htm.
