|Venture Round, 1/13 |
OnApp develops cloud software for hosting providers. Using OnApp software, any hosting provider can build and manage their own cloud hosting service, rapidly and at low cost.
OnApp was founded in July 2010 after two years of development. Since its launch, OnApp has deployed well over 275 clouds for some 250 hosting companies around the world. More than 100,000 virtual machines run in OnApp-powered clouds, and OnApp states that it deploys 2-3 new clouds every day for its clients.
OnApp has over 70 employees in the US and EU, and is headquartered in London, UK.

OnApp is a cloud deployment and management tool for hosting providers. It turns any commodity hosting infrastructure into a cloud (public, private, hybrid or VPS) and provides rich functionality for managing a cloud hosting service, including cloud resources, failover, users and billing.
OnApp cloud software is unique in that it is the only cloud-enabling product designed for the hosting industry. It differs from generic cloud management products in a number of ways:
Speed of deployment. OnApp is designed for hosting environments and deploys in as little as 24 hours.
Cost of entry. OnApp builds clouds on any commodity hardware and is available for a low monthly license fee, reducing the set-up costs for hosts.
Density & profitability. OnApp maximizes the density of VMs on each hypervisor, by deploying customer resources intelligently, and through advanced VLAN management. This leaves more cloud resources available for hosts to sell to customers.
Features designed for hosts. OnApp provides the comprehensive user and billing management functionality a host needs, ready to run out of the box. It also integrates with the leading billing/CRM applications in the hosting industry: WHMCS, Ubersmith and HostBill, and includes an open API to facilitate integration with third party systems. Other notable features are automatic failover, IOPS monitoring and billing, 60 second VM deployment using OnApp templates and an extensive VM template library.
Ease of use and customization. OnApp has a consumer-oriented front end control panel for a host’s customers, billing teams and system administrators to use. It can be customized completely with a host’s own branding.
Heavyweight cloud architecture. While the front end is very easy to use, it controls an enterprise-class back-end that is extremely robust and scales from 10s to many tens of thousands of VMs with ease.
