Describe the company – the elevator pitch …
Morpheus Data is an award-winning cloud management platform. Morpheus gives developers, IT managers, and DevOps professionals full control over both VM and container-based systems across any cloud or infrastructure. In a single platform, Morpheus provides complete application lifecycle management, including one-click provisioning, backup, recovery, logging, monitoring, reporting, and access control.
How are you different?
First and foremost, Morpheus is the only infrastructure-agnostic cloud management platform on the market so it works with nearly any system. It offers today’s tech leaders capabilities they never thought possible: instant one-click application provisioning, fast and simple database management, easy workload migration, automatic monitoring, logging and backups, dynamic admin management, and much more.
Additionally, Morpheus has a unique perspective and history since it was born out of necessity—not to exploit a market opportunity. Morpheus started inside of Bertram Capital (a Silicon Valley P/E firm with +$1 billion in committed capital) to solve technology problems facing its portfolio companies. Bertram Capital built a world-class team called Bertram Labs and they built an in-house cloud management solution called Morpheus. While Morpheus found applicability across the portfolio, demand increased until it grew to become what it is today, a stand-alone company serving a quickly growing client base.
