An intersting article from Reuters highlights a few of the companies receiving VC funding for cloud computing plays. There are several others, including some that are in stealth mode still. What does this mean?
First, cloud computing is starting up the hype curve in a big way. Second, there are smart people building very valueable extensions to core cloud infrastructures from Amazon, Google, and others (mostly Amazon at this point). The gaps are being filled by start-ups and making cloud adoption easier and more manageable. Lastly, there will be so many new companies and products in this space that companies will need help sorting through the options and leveraging them for value.
It’s an interesting and exciting time. Let’s have some fun!
Here are the younger start-up companies mentioned in the article.
