Scalability is part of our DNA

At Cleondris, we are always looking for ways to make our solutions scalable - it's in our DNA. Our founder, Dr. Christian Plattner, originally worked as a scientist and researcher in database scaling at ETH Zurich, one of the top 10 universities in the world. He invented DBFarm, a cluster-based database server that can run on hundreds of nodes. His scientific work has been presented in major international computer science journals and conferences.

Dr. Christian Plattner is proud to have worked with legendary computer scientists such as Dr. Gustavo Alonso (Prof. Computer Science, ETH Zurich), Dr. Tamer Özsu (Prof. at the University of Waterloo) and Dr. Swami Sivasubramanian (VP, Amazon AI). Cleondris' scalability is based on Dr. Plattner's years of research in large database replication. This experience gives us a unique understanding of how to build scalable and reliable systems.


Technology leader for NetApp add-ons

Many of the features included in our software were first-to-market innovations. When it comes to NetApp add-ons, Cleondris has always been one step ahead and has always set new standards.

The wide range of add-ons and the comprehensive support for different NetApp ONTAP versions is absolutely unrivaled. Cleondris' particular strengths lie in developing additional integrations with other products, such as VMware vSphere and vCloud Director, which help NetApp customers get the most out of their NetApp installations.

The Swiss quality (100 % developed in Switzerland) of the software and the close partnership with NetApp enable Cleondris customers to add value to their NetApp environments.
