  • We’re CloudSwitch, a venture-backed start-up in Boston, focused on making the cloud work for enterprise IT. The cloud is a great way for enterprises to lower costs and be more agile, and we’re excited to be part of this major shift.We help mid-tier and large enterprises with existing data centers and applications move to the cloud – simply, securely and with no modifications.
  • This has great value for enterprise IT. With CloudSwitch:Cloud resources are secured end-to-end as an extension of the enterprise's security perimeter - all data and communications are encrypted and stay in the control of the enterprise.Applications run in the cloud without modification – no need to re-architect an app for a specific cloud.Users can manage applications running in the cloud using existing management tools and processes, just as they did before.Enterprises are now free from cloud lock-in, able to move applications to the right place as needed -- to another cloud or back to the data center.
  • Our CloudSwitch software product, which is about to be released in a public beta, is a downloadable virtual machine that installs easily into a customer’s data center. You’re up and running immediately.Using our management console, you take existing applications – including computing, networking and storage – and point and click them into the target cloud. We’ll automatically move the application into the cloud by mapping it to the cloud resources. At the same time we’re securing the application by encrypting the data in transit and at rest, and keeping key management in the hands of the customer.Once the application is in the cloud, it still looks just like it did in the data center, with the same IP address and identity. So all the management and monitoring tools and data center processes work exactly the same.Our Cloud Isolation Technology is the “secret sauce” that makes all this happen.With CloudSwitch, you can move from the data center to the cloud and back, and between clouds, without changing anything – and it doesn’t matter which cloud or which hypervisor technology you’re using.
  • Our software is already deployed at several enterprise beta sites, and we’re about to make it more widely available so any company that wants to move to the cloud can do this quickly, easily and securely.

    • 3. Why Create CloudSwitch?
      Late 2007 / Early 2008
      • Recognized platform shift potential of Cloud Computing
      • 4. Had fundamental understanding of how Clouds were built
      • 5. Determined real problems for Enterprise adoption
      Solution requires infrastructure level product
      Enterprise -> Out not Cloud -> In
      Provable Security
      Tight integration with existing infrastructure
      “No Modifications” to operating system, configurations, applications
      Partial solutions break value proposition
      Specific Stacks / Applications / Frameworks cannot run in isolation
      Can’t address security, can’t be fully integrated
