Queplix Launches Cloud Service to Integrate Cloud Systems

The company launched a service called QueCloud

The company launched a service called QueCloud, which is a cloud application that securely integrates—you guessed it—cloud applications, such as Salesforce, NetSuite, and LinkedIn.

Before long, we'll be able to get any type of IT service through a cloud-based connection. In fact, we're virtually at that point now—and modern-era cloud services are still only toddlers at 5 years old or less.

Data integration and management software maker Queplix, a relatively new name in the cloud scene, is a good example of where all this is going.

The Sunnyvale, Calif.-based company has launched a service called QueCloud, which is a cloud application that securely integrates—you guessed it—cloud applications, such as Salesforce, NetSuite, LinkedIn and Facebook, to their systems without needing an IT person to write scripts.

"Our mission is to turn capex [costs] into opex," Queplix CEO Mark Cashman told eWEEK. "We can take the data from cloud-based applications or even on-premise apps, because we have a persistent metadata storage. We don't physically retain a copy of the data itself; we are just capable of moving it from Point A to Point B using something we call Data Harmonization, our own automated data-synchronization process.

"We don't care where your data exists; we're providing you with a wonderful object-oriented user interface which allows you to move your data without having to program SQL and write scripts to do that. And the data resides with the application or the supporting database for that application."

Configures Intelligent Blades

Queplix Virtual Data Manager, the company's flagship product, runs the QueCloud application and data-integration process. The software enables the configuration of a series of intelligent Application Software Blades that identify and extract key data and associated security information from many different target applications, such as Salesforce, Google Apps, Amazon and others.

The blades identify and extract metadata from the data stored within these applications, then bring it into the Queplix Engine to support data integration with other applications, Cashman said.

Once applications are integrated, QueCloud then keeps customer, product and financial data consistent between applications—even legacy applications, such as SAP PeopleSoft—with what Queplix calls Data Harmonization, its own automated data-synchronization process, Cashman said. QueCloud can scale up to the largest enterprise, or more cost effectively for small or medium businesses, he said.

QueCloud, which was introduced May 8 at NetSuite's SuiteWorld in San Francisco, is available now.

Queplix, founded in 2004 as a database tools provider but reset in 2009 to do virtualization services, has customers that include The Home Depot, Homesite and Sony Ericsson.
