After two years of research & development, the Nantes-based startup Clever Cloud releases today its cloud computing service (of type Platefom as a Service). The service brings for the first time a “pay-as-you-go” payment model, as well as automatic scalability of hosting’s performances. Clever Cloud also raised money from Kima Ventures this year.

A PaaS hosting with scalable and automatic performance management :

Compared to other PaaS services on the market, Clever Cloud automatically adjusts its infrastructure to deliver the performance needed by applications and websites, guaranteeing reactivity.
The second innovation lies in its ability to support multiple languages (PHP, Java, Ruby and Scala), without any code modification required to be compatible with Clever Cloud’s service. Clever Cloud also innovates with its business model: the service charges only "computing power" (bandwidth, storage, computing power, electricity) used by the application, in real time.
