Queplix Corp. has unveiled its QueCloud platform, designed to accelerate migration of enterprise applications to private and public cloud infrastructures. The company also announced that it has closed a $1.5 million Series A investment from Javelin Venture Partners to expand its cloud computing and enterprise search offerings. Additionally, Mark Cashman has been named as CEO of the company, and Silicon Valley veterans Kevin Brown and Carl Wright have joined the company's Board of Directors and Advisory Board, respectively.

"Queplix fills two critical IT needs -- accelerated migration of legacy applications to the cloud, and secure access to structured data across legacy, SaaS, and cloud environments," said Noah Doyle, Managing Director at Javelin Venture Partners. "We were impressed with the team's enterprise application expertise, and the fact that they have bootstrapped a substantial business with two market-leading products and multiple Fortune 500 customers."

Mark Cashman brings a wealth of enterprise computing experience to Queplix as the company's new Chief Executive Officer. Prior to joining Queplix, Mr. Cashman served as Vice President of Business Development at Agito, a leading provider of enterprise mobility technology. He has served in management roles at IBM, GoRemote, and Fiberlink, and received a BS in Management and Marketing from the Krannert School of Management at Purdue University. The company also named Kevin Brown, former CEO of Kidaro, to the Board of Directors, and named Carl Wright, Senior Vice President at InstallFree and former Chief Information Security Officer of the U.S. Marine Corps, to the company's Advisory Board (See separate Queplix Board of Directors announcement for more details).

"Enterprises see massive benefits in SaaS and cloud computing, but they need help migrating their existing applications to run in these environments," said Mark Cashman, CEO of Queplix. "Queplix provides a unique platform to rapidly move mission-critical applications and information into a modern infrastructure, while at the same time enabling universal and secure search access to enterprise data across private and public clouds."

QueCloud: Accelerating Cloud Adoption

The new QueCloud platform builds upon the company's widely deployed third-generation QueWeb platform for legacy application migration. QueCloud enables customers to rapidly extract structured data, business logic, and security access controls, and publish cloud-ready applications to private or public cloud infrastructures. For private cloud deployment, QueCloud applications can run standalone or in popular virtual machine formats such as VMware ESX and XenServer. For public cloud deployment, QueCloud enables publishing of a dynamic web-based application to the Amazon Web Services EC2 platform.

The QueCloud 3.2 platform, with private cloud support, is shipping and available immediately. The QueCloud 3.5 platform, including advanced support for VMware and Amazon EC2 platforms, is in private alpha testing with customers, and is expected to be available in the fourth quarter.
