Introducing the ZeroStack Cloud Platform

More than nine out of ten private cloud projects start off poorly. Some of them fail due to cost over runs. Others flop because they under-deliver on functionality. And many suffer from unnecessary complexity and schedule delays.

The ZeroStack Cloud Platform was specifically designed to solve these problems. A true end-to-end solution supporting 100% pure OpenStack APIs, it offers the best of both clouds -- the convenience and agility of the Public Cloud combined with the control and performance of the Private Cloud.
