United States : Frost & Sullivan Recognizes Connectloud's Breakthrough Cloud Management Platform, uCloud

July 31, 2014

Based on its recent analysis of the cloud management platforms market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Connectloud with the 2014 North American Frost & Sullivan Award for New Product Innovation Leadership. Connectloud has broken new ground in the private cloud and cloud management platform space by introducing uCloud , a unique, software-defined cloud platform. Its unrivaled performance, enhanced agility, service provider-grade scalability, cost efficiency, multi- and vertical-tenancy, and virtualized delivery place Connectloud rungs above competing solutions.

uCloud 's infrastructure-agnostic approach enables the deployment of private and public clouds in mere days. This innovative solution provides and deploys software-based routers, firewalls, and switches with existing hardware, while simultaneously aiding advanced orchestration and virtualization of the entire architecture to significantly enhance cloud security.

uCloud uses a Layer2- and Layer3-capable encrypted virtual network to achieve optimum security of the virtualized infrastructure. Importantly, it complies with several regulations such as Sarbanes-Oxley and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). At no point does uCloud handle the enterprise data; it only enables seamless cloud architecture. Furthermore, it offers highly encrypted access to data and the cloud at all times.

"uCloud offers optimum transparency over cost and capacity utilization of the internal cloud infrastructure," said Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Debarun Guha Thakurta. "This open compute- and open source-based solution leverages standard network function virtualization components to automate the entire process of provisioning and deployment, ultimately cutting down capital expenditure and operational expenses."

Connectloud's go-to-market is unique as well, wherein the uCloud platform is offered as a software-as-a-service subscription. This business strategy of offering an on-demand, low-cost, and highly efficient cloud-management platform has been critical to the company's success.

Connectloud realized that to enable its highly agile and cost-effective cloud management platform, the software development method must be outstanding. The company developed an agile software development lifecycle by implementing a distinct, hybrid approach by integrating both on-shore and off-shore software development.

Unlike competitors that follow a top-down approach for solution development, Connectloud follows a bottom-up approach, which helps it invent solutions that address critical IT challenges. Another notable feature of uCloud that elevates the quality of service is the offering of role-based administrative capabilities to users.
