ZeroStack Targets All-in-One Scale-Out Private Cloud

ZeroStack, a start-up based in Mountain View, California, emerged from stealth and introduced a private cloud solution that combines on-premises deployment and a SaaS platform -- allowing customers to consume a self-service cloud without significant in-house expertise or time.


The company said its design offers a complete, scale-out private cloud that converges compute, storage, networking and management software with self-healing capabilities. The SaaS platform provides monitoring, troubleshooting, capacity planning and chargeback using a powerful analytics engine. The analytics engine enables predictive failure detection with proactive resolution.

ZeroStack co-founder and CEO Ajay Gulati was senior architect and R&D lead at VMware, where he designed products including Storage I/O control and Storage DRS. Co-founder and CTO Kiran Bondalapati was founding engineer at Bromium, where he architected the company's security solution based on new techniques with hardware virtualization, and was a technical leader at AMD, where he developed the underpinnings of several virtualization technologies.

"Private clouds are an essential element of many organizations' IT strategies, but they have been frustrated by the complexity, slow time to value and cost of deploying and running them," said Ajay Gulati, co-founder and CEO of ZeroStack. "ZeroStack was founded on the belief that every enterprise should be able to stand up a private cloud without having to stitch together complex software and hardware or rely on expensive technical teams to run it. A private cloud should be as easy to consume as a public cloud."

ZeroStack also disclosed $5.6 million in Series A funding led by Foundation Capital in 2014, with Ashu Garg, general partner, leading the investment from Foundation Capital and joining as the first board member. Mark Leslie, founder and CEO and Veritas, has also been appointed to the board.
