Managing today’s complex hybrid and multi-cloud environments can be a major challenge. Here are eight startups solution providers should know who are developing leading-edge technologies for deploying, integrating and managing cloud infrastructure and applications.

The New Generation Of Cloud Computing Companies

Cloud computing has, in many ways, become the de facto model for IT operations. While a great deal of IT hardware and software is still installed in on-premises data centers, businesses and organizations are running more of their applications and storing more of their data in cloud-based systems.

But these increasingly dispersed hybrid-cloud and multi-cloud networks can be challenging to manage. Applications need to be connected and integrated. Data needed for operational and analytical tasks may be dispersed across multiple silos. Just keeping track of what cloud services an organization is using – and paying for – is often problematic.

These challenges have become even more evident in the last three years as the COVID-19 pandemic forced many people to work from home, accelerating the pace of adoption of cloud computing.

A recent report from the MarketsandMarkets research firm concluded that global sales of cloud IT products and services reached $445.3 billion in 2021 and will grow at a CAGR of 16.3 percent to $947.3 billion by 2026.

To help with these challenges, a new generation of startups is developing leading-edge products for deploying, connecting and managing cloud infrastructure systems and applications to help businesses meet these cloud challenges.

Here’s a look at eight cloud startups with technologies that solution providers can use to help customers tackle their cloud computing challenges.
