Bracket Computing was a cloud computing company.[1] It was founded in 2011 by Tom Gillis and Jason Lango, both previously of Ironport Systems, and was based in Mountain View, California.[2] In 2015, the company raised $45 million in an investment round led by Fidelity and Goldman Sachs, bringing its funding total to $130 million.[2] Its primary software offering was called the Computing Cell.[2] As of October 2015, the company employed about 70 people, but planned to hire more software engineers.[3]

On 1 May 2018, VMware announced that Tom Gillis will lead VMware's Network and Security Business Unit. VMware intends to acquire Bracket Computing's intellectual property and other members of Bracket's staff.[4] The Bracket Computing website now redirects to a "403 Forbidden" page.
