LetusCloud is a company specialized in virtualization & cloud computing. The goal is to bridge the gap between enterprises and virtualization. Through our innovative solution we will be providing Virtualization as a Service (VaaS) to all companies (small and big enterprises).

Story


Since about four to five years, virtualization became an interesting and important topic. We have come across many of our friends who were trying to get virtualization courses, either because the subject sounded cool or because their employers are interested in it and know that it's the future.
As we were expert in the subject, we got always consulted regarding what courses to take, advantages of each platform and how much this topic is getting attention. It was clear to us that many enterprises are understanding that virtualization is become a necessity. But there are still many challenges facing enterprises when they want to move to virtualization.

According to an article on the BusinessInsider describing the main challenges facing enterprises willing to move to virtualization. Most challenges (according also to this and this) are that CIOs don't know the value of virtualization, lack of knowledge of running virtualization systems within the enterprise and inability to assess resources need and new structure of a virtualized environment. It was clear to us that many enterprises wanted to move to virtualization but they lack knowledge and ability to move to the cloud.

Solution

Our goal is to bridge this gap by allowing IT staff with no prior virtualization knowledge to build a virtual network. We thought that such solution will allow tech people with no background knowledge about virtualization to build quickly and easily clouding solutions.
Nubes and Nubes Pro are our main products. They are web-based simple network designing software. The user is presented on a web browser allowing them to create a virtual network in a way similar to how Visio work. The user is presented with set of building components on the left and can drag & drop them on the designing canvas. The user can change their specifications (like number of ports of a router, memory for a server, size of Hard disk... etc) and can connect them together. The user can check his design for any consistency errors and can check connectivity between two points. Finally the user can click on a "generate" button to generate a virtual network identical to the design that he/she has entered.

Development

The development has gone through many different stages. Our methodology was agile development with many quick iterations to get more feedback from customers.
We started with a subset of features and released an early version in 2012. We kept on improving and adding features to these versions until we have an excellent version that can easily compete in features with Whatsapp and Viber. Our solution is totally customizable from the server side. We also added lot of exciting features such as anonymous and geo-location chats.
