Introducing Cloud.com

Are you ready to launch a cloud? At Cloud.com we're building software that is going to let you do just that. Our goal is to make it incredibly easy for companies to set up and host cloud computing services, and we're excited to begin talking publicly about our technology and this market.

Are you ready to launch a cloud? At Cloud.com we're building software that is going to let you do just that. Our goal is to make it incredibly easy for companies to set up and host cloud computing services, and we're excited to begin talking publicly about our technology and this market.

When we say we're developing technology that lets you launch a computing cloud, we mean exactly that. We're not another cloud management company, but rather we're developing an entire, turnkey cloud stack. So yes, we've got end-user management consoles and administrative applications, but we're also building a massively scalable hypervisor on top of Xen. Our Multitenant Hypervisor can turn your everyday commodity hardware into a powerful computing cloud. You don't need to buy any proprietary networking and storage equipment.

What we are really building, however, is an opportunity for service providers to launch a cloud computing service quickly in order to gain a critical early position in the market for cloud computing. The entire system has been designed to be quick to deploy, easy to manage, and margin friendly.

Now, normally we're going to be a lot more humble on this blog. You know, the typical unbiased and insightful commentary you'd expect from a software company on its own blog. But today, we're launching our website, and we are in a festive mood and want to shout about the work we've been doing!

I'm tempted to launch into a list of all the cool features and functions we're building, but I'll spare you the list and just point you to the technology section of cloud.com. What I want to share with you here is the mantra that has been driving us for months now. "EC2 for Everybody on Anything." That means feature parity (and then some), scalability (and then some), security (and then some), and it all has to run on commodity hardware.

We're ready to show you are stuff, and we sure hope you are ready to launch a cloud, because the time is now. Want more info, go to the learn section and watch a four-minute video explaining our ideas.
