At Bracket, we are building the blueprint for the enterprise data center of the future—secure infrastructure in software that spans multiple hyperscale clouds.
SUNNYVALE, Calif. (PRWEB) April 22, 2015
Bracket Computing, Inc., the industry’s first cloud virtualization company, and Wells Fargo & Company (NYSE: WFC) today announced Bracket’s participation in the Wells Fargo Startup Accelerator, an innovative program that makes investments in technology startups whose ideas could drive the future of the financial services industry.
As part of the Startup Accelerator, Wells Fargo will support Bracket’s development of its unique Computing Cell technology. This technology provides a secure cloud-computing environment that meets or exceeds the requirements of even the most secure private data center environments, allowing the financial services industry to run extremely complex and sensitive workloads on the public cloud.
“At Bracket, we are building the blueprint for the enterprise data center of the future—secure infrastructure in software that spans multiple hyperscale clouds,” said Tom Gillis, CEO of Bracket. “We can only do this when we have forward thinking partners like Wells Fargo that work closely with us to make it a reality.”
“Companies like Bracket are challenging longstanding assumptions about how data centers are built and managed,” said Braden More, senior vice president and head of Enterprise Payment Strategy at Wells Fargo. “We’re watching closely to see how Bracket will shape the future of the enterprise infrastructure.”
Bracket’s Computing Cells, which safely encapsulate customers’ applications and data, offer a radically different hybrid cloud computing model in which workloads can flex up or down, span multiple public clouds, be moved at any time and be managed with one set of controls. This unique platform delivers enterprise-grade infrastructure that is independent of capacity and is designed to span multiple heterogeneous clouds, making the core data center finally realize the promise of “utility computing.”
“Harnessing this flexible, efficient infrastructure allows the innovative team at Wells Fargo to imagine the unimagined, experiment rapidly, and differentiate through continuous innovation,” Gillis said.
