Bangalore-based RightCloudz Technologies has developed a new evaluation methodology that offers comparison and evaluation of cloud vendors based on the enterprise customer’s specific business needs.

With the increasing number of cloud services and vendors, enterprises find it challenging to not only purchase the right type of cloud for their specific requirements, but also to identify a suitable vendor that can offer better returns on investment. Scientific and rational comparison of vendors and their services can therefore become a daunting task for cloud consumers.

RightCloudz Technologies, a cloud intelligence startup by four cloud professionals of the city’s IT industry, has developed a proprietary software based on its evaluation methodology called RankCloudz. The application offers comparison and evaluation of cloud vendors based on the customer’s specific business needs. RankCloudz incorporates static and dynamic information about the world’s major cloud vendors and their services. Using this information, the software application enables comparison and evaluation of cloud vendors based on the enterprise’s business and technical priorities.

Vikas Mathur, Sreehari Narasipur and Subhranshu Banerjee co-founded RightCloudz Technologies in early 2013 with Archana Nukal joining the team in mid-2014. In November 2014, the company launched the first online beta version of RankCloudz for enterprises. In the beta phase, the startup has released Web-based, customized cloud recommendations reports comprising detailed analysis of cloud vendors along with qualitative information on each listed vendor. The reports capture the results of online interactive visualizations which help enterprises in evaluating major cloud vendors for a wide range of business scenarios. Read full report on page 2

Files on a home computer could soon be accessible from anywhere, even when the computer holding them is switched off, thanks to a prototype file-synching system developed at Microsoft’s research labs.

The system is designed to demonstrate an alternative to a growing array of cloud services. “One of our underlying principles is that you don’t always want to put all of your data in the cloud and give it to Google or some other corporation,” said Michelle Mazurek, of Carnegie Mellon University.
