The Lowdown: Skydera was founded in 2009 to democratize IT management and enable companies to launch and manage cloud-based data centers. The San Jose, Calif.-based company launched its centralized platform in 2010, a platform used to manage multiple cloud environments via a single interface. From that command center, users can manage servers, deploy applications, control user access, track usage and centralize billing. And Skydera supports cloud big boys like Amazon, Rackspace, GoGrid and SliceHost.
