Cloudistics came out of stealth last year looking to address the rapidly heating market for affordable and manageable on-premise cloud solutions. The startup based in Reston, Va. has developed a software-defined data center platform that simplifies deployment and operations for MSPs who want to buck the public cloud.
Cloudistics, an on-premises cloud computing company, today announced it has been named a “Cool Vendor” in the May 2017 Gartner “Cool Vendors in Cloud Infrastructure, 2017” report. This designation follows last month’s IDC recommendation naming the company as an IDC Innovator.
One of Pica8’s OEM partners leveraging the 10G and 100G Dell switches supported on PicOS is Cloudistics, a leading on-premises cloud platform for enterprise cloud computing. “Pica8’s open networking OS is a critical component of our high speed micro-segmentation approach,” said Cloudistics’ CEO Najaf Husain. “With the latest 100GB support, our customers can scale their on-premises cloud environments to many thousands of cores and petabytes of flash storage, while delivering market-leading performance.”
International Data Corporation (IDC) has just released an IDC Innovators report recognizing three infrastructure vendors with revenue under $100 million that offer innovative solutions for improving server hardware utilization in the datacenter. The three vendors recognized as IDC Innovators are: TidalScale, DriveScale, and Cloudistics.
IT industry trends seldom follow a straight line. Instead, they can be and are blown hither and yon by many factors, including the strength of the underlying technologies, vendors’ investment and commitment and market enthusiasm. But perhaps most important of all are the dynamic feelings and changing needs of IT customers. That’s why the form and functions of solutions often change radically after they initially appear.
