Cloud News Round Up February 9th

Domo

Here is your cloud news round up for the week.

SaaS Startup Domo Raises $125 Million in New Round of Funding – If there was anything to suggest that SaaS is a highly lucrative business, then this is it. Cloud technology has so much potential, in fact, that Domo (a startup spin-off from Omniture, another startup that was bought by Adobe in 2009 for $1.8 billion), has recently raised $125 in its most recent round of funding. Domo is a cloud tech company that provides business intelligence, allowing companies to make sense of and money from the data that Domo release into the cloud. One example cited is that Domo worked with one Fortune 500 company to tell them which colours of products are selling in real time, allowing that company to choose which products it manufactures more of and adjust its production line accordingly, all in real time.

New Microsoft CEO Focusing On a “Mobile-First, Cloud-First World” – As a pioneer of cloud technology during his 20+ years as an employee at Microsoft, people would be foolish to think that Satya Nadella’s time as the newly promoted CEO of Microsoft would be set to focus on anything but. However, he has now confirmed some of his future plans for the company, saying that he would like to prepare Microsoft for a “mobile first, cloud-first world”, ensuring that the company do not lose further ground with their Windows phones to close competitors Apple and Samsung, nor do they give up a large part of the burgeoning SaaS market to new startups.

Zynstra Launches O365Connect – A somewhat surprising fact, but somehow, many small UK businesses run on Windows XP, Office 2003 and Windows Server 2003, aged technological artefacts that seem ancient in the face of newer operating system releases such as Windows Vista, 7 and 8. This is something that Zynstra say will change soon, due to the growing demands of companies who will begin to rely on technology even more, which is why they have now launched O365Connect, a cloud –base partnership with HP and Microsoft. Running on cloud server appliances built on HP’s ProLiant servers, the Microsoft end of the deal offers small businesses access to Office 365, disaster recovery via Windows Azure as well as cloud managed email and file data, plus a full back up to go with it.
