Citrix Startup Accelerator has entered into a partnership with CumuLogic, a new cloud application platform software developer specializing in enabling enterprises, cloud providers and ISVs to develop and deploy java-based applications either in public or in private and hybrid cloud settings.
The Citrix Startup Accelerator Program targets entrepreneurial-led ideas so as to avail seed investments, office space and mentorship services all drawn from Citrix’s global acceptability, its entrepreneur friendly environment, large customer base and seasoned go-to-market strategies.
It is quite evident that the management of this initiative from Citrix is aware that the IT landscape is undergoing numerous modifications day in and day out, making it a very unstable ground to base an investment on without the knack of great entrepreneurship. They know that winner ideas will come from innovative startups that still have the flexibility to approach challenges from new and different ways.
To achieve its final ends, Citrix latched onto CumuLogic due to its ability to bridge the divide separating traditional data centers from the cloud at the operational level. The move is aimed at developing a solution that will enable enterprises and cloud providers to easily deploy enterprise-class applications into the cloud without any complications.
CumuLogic’s bridge is realized by revolutionizing virtualized environments and Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) clouds into high-end Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) cloud hence simplifying development, deployment and runtime management of mobile, web and enterprise applications in different cloud settings.
Peder Ulander who is the VP of product marketing for the Cloud Platform Group in Citrix expressed his confidence that the investment in CumuLogic will help the company realize a better hold in the Platform-as-a-Service niche, which the group is confident that is a key factor in powering greater cloud ROI for the company’s customers.
On the other hand, the management at CumuLogic is all smiles following the investment which, according to Rajesh Ramchandani, founder and CTO, is a validation to the company’s vision concerning the evolution of datacenters to assume the cloud computing model.
