It’s still 7 weeks out but it’s time to start gearing up for GigaOM’s second annual Structure: Europe event which will focus on the intersection of cloud computing, big data and the promising European market for all the related technologies.
Ten cool and promising startups will take the stage in London to talk about the problems they’re attacking and why their solution merits our attention. So, without further ado, here are the Structure: Europe Launchpad finalists (in alphabetical order):
Aquamatix: A U.K.-based software and services company that applies smart grid and internet of things technologies to water and wastewater operations and management.
Cloud66: The idea behind Cloud66’s application management as a Service is to combine the best aspects of PaaS (ease of use) and IaaS (flexibility and control) to make system operations simple.
Cloudbase.io: This cloud Backend-as-a-Service (BaaS) for mobile developers also offers enterprise middleware edition option to allow deployment on a private cloud or internal servers.
ECmanaged: This SaaS management system lets customers keep track of their multiple clouds from the development of an application onward, and lets customers pay as they go.
Import.io: The company’s “data browser” turns the web into organized and useable data without requiring anyone to write code.
Lunacloud: A startup that’s building a full-service cloud services provider offering a full range of Infrastructure as a Service capabilities — along with multi-lingual support and service level agreements.
SecludIT: The company’s Elastic Detector services are designed to secure data and workloads running in third-party cloud infrastructure including Amazon Web Services, HP Cloud and Verizon Terremark VMware based clouds.
Stackdriver: This service, which targets devops personnel, applies real-time data analytics to identify issues in distributed systems — whether they are in the cloud infrastructure, system, or application tier.
Waymate: This service lets travelers compare multiple train and plane schedules and fares to take some of the headaches out of travel planning.
So there they are. Oh, and SaltStack, our defending Launchpad champion from Structure San Francisco, will demo at the show as well. Be sure to come check them out at Structure: Europe September 18-19.
