10 Cloud Startups For 2010


Abiquo

Abiquo was founded in Barcelona, Spain in 2006, but the company officially made its U.S. presence known this year when it opened its first U.S. headquarters in Redwood City, California and officially came out of stealth mode at a cloud industry event.

Abiquo makes open-source cloud management offerings and strives for an ecosystem where private and public clouds are interoperable and vendor-neutral. In June 2010, Abiquo announced version 1.6 of its cloud management software which adds industry-standard APIs for cloud administration and cloud services consumption. The new release also extends Abiquo's vendor independence with support for Citrix XenServer along with existing support for VMware ESX and ESXi, Microsoft HyperV, KVM, VirtualBox and Xen hypervisors.
