Ravello Systems

CEO: Rami Tamir

Headquarters: Palo Alto, Calif.

Ravello Systems looks to address the challenges posed by the divergence from today's cloud world to the future of the industry, according to the company. Ravello's main product, Cloud Application Hypervisor, lets enterprises package and operate their applications and then moves them seamlessly into either private or public cloud environments.

In August, the startup launched a SaaS offering that lets enterprises test their applications in a public cloud environment that mimics their own, allowing them enough space to pick out bugs without infecting their own systems.
