Connectloud, a company that has been operating in stealth mode and has been run by a former Cisco executive since last summer, has officially emerged from stealth mode and launched its first product, an enterprise cloud offering dubbed uCloud.

The startup launched what it’s calling an all-in-one service cloud and software-defined networking (SDN) platform. According to Connectloud, uCloud is a platform that “empowers enterprises with quickly scalable, secure, multi-tenant automation across clouds of any type.”

“uCloud was designed and built ground-up to tackle today’s toughest IT challenges,” said Zeeshan Naseh, CEO of Connectloud, in a prepared statement. “It is a new breed of intelligent software that delivers an all-in-one, self-service cloud orchestration solution together with a Layer 2 and Layer 3 capable encrypted virtual network to help businesses launch a private or public cloud in a fraction of the time and cost compared to other solutions.”

Some of the features Connectloud is highlighting include:

  • Faster stand-up time. Connectloud noted that uCloud cuts private cloud deployment times from months to weeks or days. The solution provisions and deploys software-based switches, firewalls and routers on existing hardware, orchestrating them as virtual machines.

  • Transparency and cost savings. The cloud offering was designed to provide a view of all IT infrastructure costs, as well as information on how much infrastructure is in use at any given time by an individual department.

  • Security. Connectloud noted uCloud never touches users’ data and is natively compliant with various compliance regulations, including HIPAA and Sarbanes-Oxley.

  • Agility and intuitive multi-tenancy. According to the company, uCloud offers scalability by seamlessly orchestrating public, private or hybrid clouds. It allows customers to serve themselves when needed.

“With the innovative uCloud platform, any company exploring a private cloud deployment can be up and running with a small pilot environment with as few as 20 VMs in an afternoon, and scale that to millions of VMs seamlessly,” Naseh said.
