In 2001, we thought of an original software concept for managing and controlling IT infrastructure and their associated SLAs for service providers. At that time, the combination of telecom services and IT systems technologies demanded by the concept were not available. The broad emergence of IT infrastructure virtualization technologies combined with the convergence of affordable broadband telecom services and more affordable server/storage technologies made our concept for automation and control of managed services very feasible.
InContinuum Software was founded in 2006 by veterans in the large-scale systems integration and telecom services industries in the USA, Germany and the Netherlands. Our engineering and development teams have decades of experience in these segments.
In 2006, we took the concept back to the drawing board and prepared the initial programming specifications for CloudController so that both public (service provider) and private (enterprise) cloud environments could benefit from our vision. We began the programming effort in 2007, focused on the cloud wishes of both corporate enterprises and service providers.
At VMworld 2009 in San Francisco we released the first general available version, which was crowned as the “Best of VMworld” in the category ‘Cloud Computing Technologies’. It was the world’s first generally available independent Cloud Management Platform.
CloudController is now 2 generations further, very complete and still offers market-leading functionality.
InContinuum was recognized in 2014 by Info-Tech Research Group as a leader in the area of pure-play Cloud Management Platform vendors. In this cloud automation vendor landscape, an independent market research, InContinuum was honored as an ‘Innovator’ and was awarded the “Trend Setter Award”.
This is a testament to InContinuum’s continued focus on providing the best cloud automation products to the market. CloudController has emerged from the sea of offerings in the market to be a market leader.
