10 Coolest Cloud Startups Of 2013


ScaleXtreme

CEO: Nand Mulchandani

Headquarters: San Mateo, Calif.

Providing cloud-management solutions for enterprises, ScaleXtreme helps its clients and partners manage across private and 15 different public clouds. The biggest benefit of ScaleXtreme is that it lets clients move to the cloud as fast or slow as they are able, instead of having to go all in at once, CEO Nand Mulchandani told CRN.

Right now, ScaleXtreme sells 40 percent through resellers and 60 percent direct, but as the company establishes itself more, it hopes to push toward a more channel-centric model, Mulchandani said.
