Besol was founded in 2009 in Seville Spain with the aim of designing and providing our clients with high-quality High-Performance solutions. During 2009 and 2010, our expertise with the technologies of High-Performance and High-Throughput Computing, virtualization or cloud computing was appreciated and engaged us in several demand-designed projects in Spain. These projects ranged from a Tier-2 supercomputer configuration to the deployment of a scalable videoconference application on the cloud.
Right from the start we understood how valuable the flexibility and cost-saving nature of cloud computing technologies could be to our clients, but it worried us that too technical a knowledge was required of them in order to make use of cloud IaaS(Infrastructure as a Service) services. We also noticed that for our customers, both avoiding vendor lock-in with the providers of these services and selecting the most appropriate service offering, were no trivial questions. Our customers confirmed these ideas, and with these needs in mind, we started to design and develop Tapp, a management platform for servers deployed on the cloud.
At the beginning of 2010 we received public funding and since then we are focusing exclusively on the development and maintenance of Tapp.
