Storyblok – Content Management System (CMS)
Cloud-based CMS offers improvements in speed as compared to those running on local servers, saving time and money. Moreover, these solutions allow easy upscaling and downscaling, depending on the traffic, by simply adjusting the subscription plan. For businesses looking to take their CMS to the cloud, infrastructure as service solutions offers both flexibility and security.
Storyblok is an Austrian startup that develops a headless content management system. The startup’s platform features a visual editor and nestable content blocks as well as a robust, flexible plug-in system, and internationalization. The solution enables developers to pick from a wide range of technologies to build online content. For enterprise customers, Storyblok offers an organization manager and other collaborative tools.
XTREME-D – High-Performance Computing (HPC)
As industries process increasingly large amounts of datasets, there’s a growing need for HPC. New artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms also demand sophisticated supercomputing hardware. High-performance computing clusters network hundreds or thousands of compute servers to run calculations at an extremely high rate. IaaS solutions then allow businesses and organizations to tap into HPC at a fraction of the price it would take to set up an onsite cluster.
Japanese startup XTREME-D offers cloud-based high-performance computing on demand. The startup’s platform, AXXE-L, serves the supercomputing needs of a wide range of industries. The platform powers applications based on computer-aided design (CAD) and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) as well as AI, and deep learning. The startup’s IaaS subscription offers shared dedicated, and private plans.
TrueNode Tech – Scalable Data Storage
Cloud services offer scalable data storage for startups and companies of all sizes. As the need for data storage grows, upgrading the subscription allows businesses to store increasingly more data on the cloud. IaaS solutions are highly scalable as they utilize resources from underlying servers as and when needed. Also, the high number of cloud servers behind each solution ensures that the performance is reliable within minimal downtimes due to spikes in demand. This type of cloud computing further allows businesses to manage their infrastructure as they like without having it limited by onsite hardware capacities.
TrueNode Tech is a US-based startup that offers an IaaS solution for big data. The startup’s scalable data storage platform keeps all warehousing and legacy data within a secure database. The database is queryable with high retrieval and calculation speeds to meet the needs of data-intensive industries such as finance and energy. To provide robust security, the startup encrypts and stores all client data with multi-party computation on localized edges.
DPLYR – Web Deployment
As web technologies like Node.js and MongoDB grow, it’s becoming easier for enterprises to deploy and develop complex applications on the web. Cloud-based deployment provides many benefits, including data security, scalability, speed, and tracking services. IaaS-based solutions also have a wide geographical reach. This allows enterprises to serve web apps close to the customers and reduce network latency.
Egyptian startup DPLYR specializes in DevOps tools and products. The startup’s cloud-based solutions enable easy and quick web deployment. The platform supports a wide range of web technologies, including PHP, Node.js, MySQL, and MongoDB. Moreover, the platform is configurable, has flexible server options, and allows developers to choose their cloud providers.
HyperQube – Network Virtualization
Network virtualization allows businesses to replicate an entire infrastructure on the cloud. It enables better network visibility, improves recovery time, and enables faster application delivery. By implementing virtualization, IaaS startups allow enterprises to allocate computing resources more flexibly and efficiently while lowering the total spending on infrastructure. Startups use virtual networks to test their products, for instance, for resilience to cybersecurity attacks, without exposing their onsite assets.
HyperQube is a US-based startup that offers network virtualization for enterprises. The startup’s IaaS platform enables enterprises to build an exact copy of the infrastructure or network to test new updates and technologies. HyperQube ZTX is a zero-trust virtual design studio that allows rapid creation of complex environments and replicates clients’ production networks. The startup also develops HyperQube Boost, a sales-focused version of its platform.
