10 Cloud Startups For 2010


Eucalyptus Systems

While founded in 2006 as a U.C. Santa Barbara research project, Eucalyptus Systems really came into its own in the first half of 2010. The company brought aboard former MySQL chief Marten Mickos as its CEO and pushed its open-source private and hybrid cloud software offering to the forefront. Eucalyptus' cloud infrastructure software lets companies build their own cloud computing environments. In June of 2010, Eucalyptus not only launched version 2.0 of its open-source Enterprise Edition, but also unveiled its plans to build a full-fledged partner program, highlighting the important role the channel will play in cloud computing's future
