Verecloud, Inc. Selected by Leading Analyst Firm in "Who's Who in Cloud Services Brokerage" Report

ENGLEWOOD, CO--(Marketwire - Dec 1, 2011) - Verecloud, Inc.® (OTCBB: VCLD), creator of the Cloudwrangler™ Marketplace, the innovative app store for businesses, reported today they have been selected as one of Gartner's companies in "Who's Who in Cloud Services Brokerage" released on November 21, 2011 by Benoit J. Lheureux, et al. Verecloud's Cloudwrangler app store is able to integrate SaaS (Software as a Service) offerings from multiple providers to make it easier for a business to manage and an end-user to access.

Like most new technology innovations, the Cloud has become the Wild West of the Web. SMBs (small to medium size businesses) are finding it increasingly difficult to make sense of the rapidly growing universe of cloud services. Verecloud's enabling platform cuts through all these difficulties and provides SMBs with capabilities that traditionally were available only to large enterprises. Verecloud's mission is to provide SMBs with a single place to discover, buy, monitor and manage all their cloud services. After originally building a cloud integration and marketplace platform for the telecommunications industry, Verecloud® shifted focus and launched the platform as Cloudwrangler™ on August 2, 2011 selling direct to SMBs.

"Verecloud built the Cloudwrangler platform to be a carrier-grade cloud service brokerage for high throughput and low latency transaction processing, which allows us as a cloud services broker to create innovative offerings. There's a huge opportunity for the currently underserved SMB market when it comes to cloud services, and telecoms, including cable and wireless carriers as well as web portals and other service providers, are not capitalizing on it because they are simply not nimble enough to deal with the rapidly emerging opportunities," said Russell Wurth, VP Product Strategy for Verecloud. "Verecloud made the strategic decision to operate the Cloudwrangler platform ourselves to go directly after the small and mid-market businesses. In the short time we have had our marketplace running, we have seen tremendous response, and have been able to deliver cloud services as well as free cloud management tools to our customers. We are proud to be recognized by Gartner in this report. Verecloud is the only company to operate our own marketplace with aggregated provisioning, billing, management and integration of multiple cloud providers."
