Cloudsoft Named "Cool Vendor" By Leading Industry Analyst Firm

Cloudsoft Corporation, a provider of cloud computing software and services that drive Intelligent Application Mobility, today announced that it has been included in the list of “Cool Vendors in Application and Integration Platforms, 2011” report by Gartner, Inc. Authored by Gartner Research Vice Presidents Massimo Pezzini, Kimihiko Iijima, Paolo Malinverno, Jess Thompson and Yefim V. Natis, the report reviews five vendors that provide innovative offerings in this space and discusses the Cloudsoft Monterey middleware solution for fine-grained application mobility.

According to the report, innovation in application and integration platforms continues from a technology perspective and in terms of packaging and delivery models. Increasingly, cloud computing requirements for large-scale, highly available, distributed transactional systems are drivers for application and integration platform evolution. Additionally, the report finds that application and integration platform innovation introduced by small vendors often plays a critical role in the strategy of large software vendors, typically through acquisitions.

Cloudsoft is recognized by Gartner as a Cool Vendor for its application middleware, called Monterey, which makes it possible to scale and distribute high-performance transactional applications across machines, locations and multiple clouds. Monterey achieves this through “Intelligent Application Mobility”, which enables application segments to move independently and near-instantly to anywhere across a distributed infrastructure – subject only to user-defined business policies and in response to changing conditions (e.g. changing workloads, user locations, capacities, availability, costs). This facilitates near-instant scalability and adaptability in the application tier, thereby creating an Elastic Process Fabric.

"We consider being recognized by Gartner as a ‘Cool Vendor’ as further vindication of the significance of Intelligent Application Mobility in solving the challenges that enterprises face scaling transactional business applications in a way that is totally transparent to both application developers and end users; while at the same time enabling enterprises to exploit to the full the elasticity and cost benefits of cloud computing”, said Duncan Johnston Watt, CEO of Cloudsoft.

“What is really cool is Monterey’s ability to decompose transactional applications into fine-grained segments at design time which can be dynamically moved between servers, locations or clouds at runtime, with zero interruption or degradation to service and where this live migration is policy-driven at all times”, continues Johnston-Watt. “This capability has huge implications for the widespread adoption of cloud computing by enterprises as it gives them the ability to realize its benefits and productivity gains while maintaining control and ensuring they conform to any governance and compliance requirements.”
