CloudSwitch Named “Cool Vendor” by Leading Analyst Firm


CloudSwitch, Inc. today announced that it has been included in the list of “Cool Vendors” in the Cloud Management report[1] by Gartner, Inc. CloudSwitch’s innovative software bridges the enterprise data center with cloud computing services, extending enterprise security and control into the cloud. With CloudSwitch, existing applications can be moved to the cloud with point-and-click simplicity and no modifications, remaining tightly integrated with enterprise data center tools and policies.

According to the “Cool Vendors” report, “Gartner’s 2010 CIO survey identified cloud computing as the number two strategic technology investment for CIOs globally.” It also notes that “established vendors in IT operations management have yet to deliver innovation in the cloud-computing management area.” To read the full report, please visit the CloudSwitch website.

 “We are pleased to be recognized by Gartner as innovative, impactful and intriguing,” said John McEleney, CEO at CloudSwitch. “We’re at the forefront of enterprise adoption of the cloud, and excited to be working with many market-leading companies as they move their first workloads into the cloud and plan their cloud strategies, leveraging CloudSwitch to make the cloud a secure extension of their internal data centers.”

CloudSwitch has been recognized for its innovation by several industry organizations in the past few months. The company was recently named winner of the first-time Launch Pad competition at Cloud Connect, a major cloud event held in Santa Clara. It has also been named to NetworkWorld’s “Top 10 Start-Ups to Watch in 2010,” and to AlwaysOn’s OnDemand Top 100 Private Companies for 2010.

In March, CloudSwitch launched the public beta for the free Explorer version of its software. Enterprises with existing applications can download CloudSwitch software to explore the cloud with no risk. Built on patent-pending Cloud Isolation Technology™, CloudSwitch puts control over cloud-based applications and data where it belongs — safely in the hands of the enterprise. Applications can be moved easily between cloud environments and back to the data center based on the requirements of the business, regardless of differences in hypervisors or cloud infrastructures. CloudSwitch protects enterprises from the complexity, risks and potential lock-in of cloud computing, freeing them to leverage the cloud’s advantages in cost and business agility.
