Cloudkick was a cloud computing server management and monitoring software as a service based in San Francisco. Products include a centralized server monitoring tool for multiple cloud server providers, as well as dynamic server management tools. Users manage and monitor their cloud servers, known as nodes, through a dashboard, which lists the names and performance metrics of each node.
Cloudkick supports multiple cloud server providers (such as Amazon EC2, GoGrid, Linode, Rackspace, Joyent, OpSource and SoftLayer), virtual machine management, user management (allows admins to set user permissions for different nodes), an in-browser web-based SSH terminal (allows users to access any server on the dashboard) and changelog tracking
Cloudkick was founded by Alex Polvi, Dan Di Spaltro, and Logan Welliver in January 2009, upon acceptance to the Y Combinator startup incubator, from which they received initial funding. The company raised $750,000 from Avalon Ventures and Nueva Ventures, later that year. Paul Querna, former VP of Infrastructure at the Apache Software Foundation, joined soon after.
Rackspace has announced that Cloudkick is End of Life and all accounts were disabled on May 31, 2013. 
Libcloud is an open-source software project founded by Cloudkick as an abstraction layer that allows applications function across multiple cloud service providers without the need to write alternate software for each. Libcloud was adopted into the Apache Software Foundation's incubator program.
