CloudBolt Software, the provider of the next generation of IT cloud management solutions, today announced that Jon Mittelhauser, experienced entrepreneurial technology executive, has joined the company as Chief Executive Officer (CEO) effective as of December 1st.

Mittelhauser is considered one of the founding fathers of the World Wide Web. He was co-author of the first widely used Web browser, NCSA Mosaic, and was a founding engineer of Netscape Communications Corporation. He was integral to building the products that made the Web a powerful business tool. As Netscape Navigator's first product manager, Mittelhauser led the effort to make the browser a platform by integrating and creating technologies such as browser plug-ins, Java and JavaScript that today are still core to the power of the Web within the enterprise.

“We are very excited to welcome Jon aboard,” said Bill Schell, Chairman of CloudBolt’s Board of Directors. “Jon’s operational experience with rapidly growing startups and building successful products and companies will be invaluable to CloudBolt going forward.”

Most recently, Mittelhauser was part of the Executive team at Nebula, Inc. and led the engineering effort of their OpenStack based enterprise private cloud appliance. Prior to that, Mittelhauser ran the software organization at OnLive, Inc. and had overall management responsibility for the successful launch of their service in 2010.

“I’m looking forward to leading CloudBolt through the next phase of growth,” said Mittelhauser. “CloudBolt has strong customer demand for its product and has achieved impressive traction in a wide range of customer verticals. I look forward to working with the entire CloudBolt team to take the company and its sales to the next level.”
