Cloudscaling Raises $10 Million In Series B From Trinity, Juniper, and Seagate

Posted May 22, 2013

Cloudscaling is an elastic cloud computing company that has raised $10 million in funding from Trinity Ventures, Juniper Networks, and Seagate Technologies.  Cloudscaling offers an OpenStack-powered cloud infrastructure system for large organizations, SMBs, and software-as-a-service companies.

Last month, Cloudscaling launched Open Cloud system (OCS) 2.5, which was integrated with Juniper’s virtual network control (VNC) technology known as JunosV Contrail.  This signaled that the companies had a partnership already in place before the investment was made official.  Cloudscaling also recently joined the Seagate Cloud Builder Alliance Partner program to focus on developing optimized storage solutions for OpenStack.  Some of CloudScaling customers include LivingSocial, EVault, and Ubisoft.

?This financing round caps a tremendous year of momentum for the company,? stated Cloudscaling CEO Michael Grant. ?That momentum affirms the voice of the market, clearly stating that customers want more than OpenStack. They want an on-premise, OpenStack-based private or public cloud turnkey system solution that delivers architectural and behavioral fidelity with major public clouds like Amazon Web Services. Our Open Cloud System product delivers on that need to enable hybrid cloud application deployments that span private and public cloud services.?
