Lagrange Systems is the company behind CloudMaestro, one of the first cloud-based Application Delivery Controllers. The company was founded in 2012 in Boulder, Colorado and has raised nearly $8 million in funding. Their cloud-based ADC optimizes traffic management using a proprietary ‘price-setting’ auction methodology. It also offers dynamic scaling at both the traffic management and application tiers, as well as secures applications using WAF and advanced DDoS protection.
Their platform sits on top of existing public clouds and is meant to complement (or even replace) next generation CDNs that specialize in application delivery for ecommerce and enterprise. They are partnered with many of the major cloud providers including AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, SoftLayer, and Rackspace. Some of their customers include Playstation, Skinit, and Leatherology.
Unlike traditional ADC hardware appliances, Lagrange CloudMaestro is a SaaS ADC and utilizes existing public clouds like Amazon Web Services. The decentralized software delivery network is capable of replacing components when they fail and automatically adding system capacity when needed. Each software delivery system is typically deployed across multiple cloud vendors making the availability of the platform significantly higher than with a single provider. With CloudMaestro, you can proactively scale your infrastructure in and out as needed, improve performance for end users, and secure your cloud-based applications.

Why Choose Lagrange Systems?
While the cloud-ADC market is still in its infancy, you will likely see it explode over the next several years as more ecommerce and enterprise applications move into the cloud and need to maximize application performance, security, and availability. For companies who are running applications in the cloud and don’t necessarily need a global CDN, Lagrange is the perfect choice. Not only does CloudMaestro improve availability and security, but it can reduce costs over the long term by scaling your applications based on demand.
