10 Cloud Startups For 2010


3Crowd

Coming out of stealth mode in February, 3Crowd is looking to shake up the content delivery network space with its CrowdDirector product, a tool that essentially helps companies manage the content delivery networks and other cloud services. CrowdDirector, San Mateo, Calif.-based 3Crowd's first product, is vendor-neutral and lets content providers configure and manage content delivery across multiple networks, providing global load balancing, an integrated dashboard, monitoring and analytics across various CDNs, Web servers, origins and cloud providers. CloudDirector also doesn't require installing or reconfiguring any software or hardware in the content provider's system or network.
