September 19, 2012
CumuLogic, a platform-as-a- service provider, has reportedly joined Citrix Startup Accelerator program and secured investment from Citrix.
As mobile workstyles and cloud services redefine the technology landscape, many of the best ideas will come from innovative startups with the flexibility to approach programs in entirely new ways. The Citrix Startup Accelerator is designed to tap into the innovation of most promising of these entrepreneurs, while helping them come to market successfully.
The IT landscape is in a period of dramatic change, shifting expectations, and transformational new computing capabilities. Under this backdrop, Citrix, a company specializing in desktop virtualization, networking, software-as-a-service (SaaS (News - Alert)), and cloud computing technologies, holds that many of the best ideas originate in innovative startups. In an effort to tap into the innovation of most promising of these entrepreneurs, Citrix has formed the Citrix Startup Accelerator program.
Focused on entrepreneur-led innovation, the Citrix Startup Accelerator program provides seed investments, office space, and mentorship to select startups from around the world, enabling them to benefit from the global Citrix presence, its entrepreneur-friendly environment, large customer base and seasoned go-to-market strategies.
CumuLogic’s Cloud Application Platform software enables enterprises, cloud providers and ISVs to develop and deploy Java applications in public, private and hybrid cloud environments.
CumuLogic has the unique ability to bridge between traditional datacenters and clouds at the application level. As a result, enterprises and cloud providers can begin deploying enterprise-class applications in cloud environments instantly without waiting for all the development standards to evolve and mature. By transforming virtualized environments and Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) clouds into a high-value Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) cloud, CumuLogic technology simplifies the development, deployment and runtime management of mobile, web and enterprise applications in public, private and hybrid clouds.
“We recognized CumuLogic as one of the first Citrix CloudPlatform partners to be verified as Citrix Ready, and we are pleased to further extend this relationship with funding via our Citrix Startup Accelerator program. We believe that Platform-as-a-Service is a key element in driving greater cloud ROI for our customers, and we continue to see this market maturing further each year. Citrix CloudPlatform, powered by Apache CloudStack, powers clouds of all shapes and sizes, and it’s the innovation from startups like this that will help continue moving cloud adoption forward,” VP of Product Marketing at Citrix Peder Ulander explained in a statement.
Citrix recently completed its acquisition of Beetil, a privately-held cloud-based service desk technology provider. Beetil helps technical support professionals provide exceptional customer assistance and streamline technology costs through the delivery of easy-to-use, yet powerful incident tracking, end user self-service, configuration, change management and release management functionality.
