ZeroStack announced its road map and the first suite of AI capabilities today as part of its efforts to disrupt the economics of the cloud.

ZeroStack, a self-driving private cloud company, has a cloud platform that leverages self-healing software and algorithms developed from millions of datagrams, according to a company announcement. This “disruption” means businesses have to choose clouds for application development based on data locality, governance, performance, and more.

The cloud platform was designed by engineers from VMware and Google, and the company’s vision is to extend existing functionality in three phases: delivering the self-driving capability in three levels of cognitive capacity planning; releasing a cloud optimization suite; and adding automated performance troubleshooting.

More information on the suite can be found here.
