San Francisco – February 20, 2018 – CloudShare, a specialty cloud provider that helps software companies replicate complex on-premise IT environments in the cloud for training, sales enablement and sandboxing, today announced details of its success last year. In 2017, the company won more than 200 new customers and served more than 73,000 users.
As enterprises prioritize and manage their cloud migration according to business results, it is becoming increasingly clear that public cloud providers are not “one size fits all.” CloudShare is earning its mark as the go-to cloud provider for software providers that want to immediately harness the power of the cloud for their legacy solutions. By enabling complex applications to be brought to the cloud unchanged and by providing specialized solutions for all aspects of the application lifecycle, from sandboxing to sales enablement and training, organizations are turning to CloudShare for its low risk and high return on investment.
CloudShare’s success in 2017 is testament to the company’s innovation and desire to provide customers with an exceptional customer experience and support.
During the year, CloudShare introduced many new features, making its specialized virtual lab solutions even more powerful, including:
- Expanded Support for Global Enterprises: New data centers in APAC and EMEA, along with localized interfaces in German and Japanese, enable customers to provide more personal user experiences and increase the size of their addressable markets.
- Salesforce Integration: Sales engineers can distribute and monitor prospect engagement on demos and PoCs directly from Salesforce, speeding the sales cycle.
- Nested Virtualization: Customers enjoy the ability to configure any combination of nested hypervisors with a single click.
CloudShare also strengthened its advisory board to further its growth strategy. Members include:
- Alan Boehme, global chief technology officer and vice president of information technology innovation at P&G and board member of the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA).
- Kevin Francis, executive vice president of sales at Skuid.
- Avery More, venture partner at Menlo Ventures.
- Hemi Zucker, Managing Principal of OCV and former CEO of j2 Global.
In addition, CloudShare captured industry recognition having been named to the list of Top 100 Cloud Service Providers by Talkin’ Cloud.
“Our success in 2017 demonstrates that the market is moving beyond all-purpose, giant cloud services to specialized solutions that meet specific needs and business goals,” said Zvi Guterman, CEO of CloudShare. “In 2018, we will continue to expand our markets and grow partnerships. We will deliver even greater value to our customers through a rapid pace of innovation and the ability to support more use cases, including technical support. In addition, we will enable software vendors launching their own SaaS applications to deliver interactive training, quickly and cost-effectively, using CloudShare’s leading training capabilities.”
