CloudCenter is a unique and powerful cloud application management platform that enables businesses to quickly and securely deploy, manage and optimize the performance of existing applications on any private, public or hybrid cloud without migration disruption and expense. CloudCenter is composed of two primary components; the CloudCenter Orchestrator environment and CloudCenter Manager.

The CloudCenter Orchestrator environment is advanced technology that enables different applications to work with different clouds without either having to be modified for each other. A hybrid App/Cloud abstraction layer, the Orchestrator environment is made-up of three components; the App Orchestrator Templates, the Cloud Orchestrator and cloud-specific CloudBlades.

CloudCenter Manager – Simple Management for the Lifecycle of an App on Clouds

The CloudCenter Manager application suite is an intuitive dashboard that IT end-users interact with to manage every aspect of moving, managing, optimizing and securing their applications on clouds.

“Due to the increasing size and variability of application workloads, businesses around the world have been attracted to the elasticity and resources on-demand that the cloud computing has to offer,” said Gaurav Manglik, co-founder and CEO of CliQr Technologies. “To-date however, many businesses have found these promises too good to be true. Migrating their existing applications has been costly and complex, often involving cloud-specific re-coding, virtualization and, once on the cloud, sub-optimal performance. CliQr’s CloudCenter changes all of that. CliQr makes cloud computing a reality for businesses, enabling them to efficiently on-board any existing application onto and between any clouds. CliQr sets the stage for mainstream cloud adoption.”

CliQr unique intellectual property ensures that “Apps do not need to care about the Cloud, and the Cloud does not need to care about the Apps – but that the two work together optimally,” says David Cope, CMO of CliQr in an interview with CloudTimes.

Headquartered in Mountain View, California, CliQr Technologies is privately held and backed by leading venture capital companies, including Google Ventures and Foundation Capital.
