Looking Back to 2009, and Brokering the Cloud for 2010

I'm pleased to report that Vordel today announced "a record increase in annual revenues and net income for 2009

Vordel Session at Cloud Expo

I'm pleased to report that Vordel today announced "a record increase in annual revenues and net income for 2009 with overall revenues up almost 80% on the previous year.

Vordel added an additional 32 enterprise customers to its global user base validating Vordel's position as the premier provider of SOA and Cloud Governance products".

If you read down through the news details, you can see that a key offering for Vordel in 2010 is the Cloud Service Broker.


Cloud Computing Conference & Expo, April 19-21, 2010, New York City

We are now seeing the category of the Cloud Service Broker begin to emerge, and it is as exciting as the early days of the XML Gateway.

It is exciting to work with early adopters who are gaining an edge on their competition, and exciting to see analysts and journalists covering the sector. Linda Leung over at Data Center Knowledge has written a piece which pull together a very useful list of Cloud Brokers, and provides the following commentary based on Gartner:

Gartner defines three opportunities for cloud brokers:

* Cloud Service Intermediation: Building services atop an existing cloud platform, such as additional security or management capabilities.

* Aggregation: Deploying customer services over multiple cloud platforms.

* Cloud Service Arbitrage: Brokers supply flexibility and "opportunistic choices" - and foster competition between clouds.

This is a good overview of what Cloud brokers will be doing in 2010, as organizations continue to adopt Cloud-based services.

Vordel is at the forefront of this.
