The 10 Coolest Cloud Startups Of 2015
CEO: Dave Zabrowski
San Jose, Calif.-based Cloud Cruiser was founded six years ago to develop software that would help businesses gain visibility into their cloud consumption, forecast future usage and compare costs across platforms to achieve and maintain balance between IT demand and supply.
Demand for that technology is skyrocketing with the trend toward complex multi-cloud environments and heterogeneous data center infrastructure.
In August, Cloud Cruiser introduced workflow templates to help companies track in greater, more-granular detail how efficiently they're spending on public and private cloud resources.
The new package, CloudSmart-Now, works across the "Big 5" clouds: AWS, Microsoft Azure, the Windows Azure Pack private cloud, OpenStack and VMware.
