About Cloudsoft

Learn more about our team, our culture and background.

Cloudsoft is a cloud software and services company specialising in Applications, Automation and the Cloud. We believe that, by taking an application-oriented view that governs infrastructure, software applications can drive business value.

Cloudsoft has built up years of experience working with applications and automation in the cloud. The Cloudsoft AMP product blueprints and manages your complete application lifecycle in the cloud. The CloudFormation Composer helps cloud users to visually compose applications for AWS without the complexity of CloudFormation language. Cloudsoft is also one active contributor to the open source Apache Brooklyn project.

In addition to cloud software, Cloudsoft has bundled up their cloud software, patterns and practices into specially designed services to Migrate, Run and Evolve business applications on Amazon Web Services (AWS). These services have delivered real business outcomes for our customers: reducing costs, increasing uptimes, improving performance and responsiveness while continuously exploiting the pace of AWS innovation.

How did Cloudsoft get here? For the last decade they have delivered successful outcomes through software development and service delivery, both locally and internationally, for companies as large and diverse as BT, IBM, Criton and Giumarra - see Case Studies.

Having developed cloud capabilities, software, patterns, practices and people solving complex cloud problems with large organisations, Cloudsoft is now democratising access to these special skills by making our services available to a broader range of UK and Ireland organisations.

Cloudsoft is a privately held company headquartered at Codebase in Edinburgh in the UK. Cloudsoft has a highly talented and experienced team of "Triple A" (applications, automation and AWS) engineers and business consultants led by seasoned executives backed by a world-class advisory board.
