Lightcrest Rolls Out Hybrid Cloud Service

Los Angeles-based Lightcrest, a provider of cloud computing software, said it has rolled out a new, hybrid cloud computing platform it calls Kahu. According to the company, its Kahu Compute Fabric provides both a hardware and software stack, which it says is more efficient than both public cloud and virtualization products, and lets users manage their compute, storage, and networking, including through a REST API. Pricing on licensing of its platform--which includes both hardware and software--was not announced.
