CloudHealth Technologies – Advancing Cloud Management with $12 Million Series B Funding
CloudHealth Technologies just secured $12 million in series B funding, led by Silicon Valley-based Scale Venture Partners. Existing investors .406 Ventures, and Sigma Prime Ventures also participated in the round. CloudHealth eliminates the complexity of cloud management through a policy-driven platform that allows customers to define, manage and implement changes programmatically, enabling them to optimize cost, availability and performance. With a focus on cloud governance, CloudHealth claims to simplify every stage of cloud management as a company scales, enabling customers to easily align cloud operations with business objectives.
“Enterprise and technology companies on a global scale are turning to the truly disruptive, utility-based cloud computing model. However, these same companies face challenges due to the increased complexity of managing cloud-based services that are magnified by the newly-enabled rapid rate of change. Traditional IT management tools just don’t work in this new model. Managing a cloud ecosystem with an eye toward maximizing the investment presents a real challenge,” said Partner Ariel Tseitlin of Scale Venture Partners. “CloudHealth is the first company to develop and scale a platform that enables ITSM for this very significant market, making it the leader in the space and an ideal investment for Scale Venture Partners. I am excited to join the CloudHealth Technologies board as they transform the way companies manage their cloud environments.”
“As companies increasingly rely on IaaS and the cloud to take advantage of benefits such as usage-based pricing and on-demand elasticity of IT resources, they are turning to CloudHealth, based on our unique approach to policy-driven cloud management,” said CloudHealth Technologies CEO and Co-founder Dan Phillips. “There is an ecosystem of best-of-breed IT tools forming for the management of this very significant new cloud market. And CloudHealth Technologies is the first and only company offering a platform that enables ITSM for the cloud. We are proud to have backing from Scale Venture Partners – one of the most respected investors in game-changing cloud technologies – as we continue to grow.”
CloudHealth Technologies will be using the funds to support the company’s rapid customer adoption, CloudHealth platform enhancements, expansion of services and increased hiring tied to engineering and sales.
