We are at the beginning of a historic shift in computing, where software will run on globally distributed infrastructure, dynamically optimizing for an evolving landscape of economic, geo-political, competitive, and privacy constraints

Scalr, the leading enterprise cloud management platform, today announced that Chris C. Kemp has joined its board of directors. Kemp co-founded OpenStack, the leading open source cloud operating system when he served as the CTO of NASA.

“Chris is one of the pioneers of cloud computing and an experienced entrepreneur,” said Sebastian Stadil, founder and CEO of Scalr. “Chris’ experience working with some of the largest and earliest adopters of cloud technology will provide invaluable strategic insight to Scalr.”

In addition to co-founding OpenStack, Kemp worked with the White House to develop the cloud computing strategy for the US Government, and was the founding CEO of several startups, including Nebula, the first company to commercialize OpenStack for the enterprise.

Scalr delivers management and control for CIOs, precise financial controls for CFOs, and rich integration capabilities that developers demand. With support for over a dozen major cloud platforms, Scalr helps enterprises maintain software portability between cloud services such as Amazon Web Services, Google Compute Engine, and OpenStack-based clouds.

“We are at the beginning of a historic shift in computing, where software will run on globally distributed infrastructure, dynamically optimizing for an evolving landscape of economic, geo-political, competitive, and privacy constraints, ” said Kemp. “I believe that Scalr has a unique opportunity to accelerate this transition and unlock the value of cloud for large enterprises.”

Scalr’s focus on providing a single point of policy management for multiple cloud platforms has resulted in over 200% revenue growth from 2013 to 2014 led by the largest organizations of the Fortune 500.
