Usage.AI: $9 Million Secured To Identify Cloud Savings

By Amit Chowdhry • Sep 18, 2023

Usage.AI – a leader in identifying cloud savings – recently announced that it had raised $9 million in a round led by Amity Ventures and existing investors TenVC, JAM Fund, and Backend Capital. Prominent private investors, including Justin Mateen, led Usage.AI’s previous round. The company also quickly became the world’s most accessible and fastest way for companies to save money on their cloud spend.

Usage.AI’s savings platform includes multiple modules covering a customer’s compute and database services, enabling organizations to consolidate their cloud savings program to a single platform that is built natively for the cloud. And Usage.AI scans every layer of a customer’s cloud environment to provide complete visibility and uses its Autopilot software to immediately identify and implement the savings with zero code change, zero downtime, and zero risk. 

Customers can achieve savings as high as 60% in as little as five minutes. And customers can try Usage.AI’s optimization tool with a no-obligation read-only savings test and then only pay a percentage of any realized savings.


“I am grateful that so many customers, from 100 at the beginning of the year, to 300+ global enterprises now including the likes of Deel, Zumba, EVGo, FabFitFun, Secureframe, and Motive, have trusted in Usage.AI to help them save on cloud costs and accelerate the growth of their businesses. We will use this capital to stay aggressive on the product roadmap and ship features and products that our customers want. Our vision is to consolidate many fragmented cloud savings and management tools into one end-to-end AI-driven platform”.

– Kaveh Khorram, founder and CEO of Usage.AI

“Each partner only makes 0 to 2 investments per year and, while there are other cloud savings offerings in the market, Usage.AI’s explosive growth validated that they have a best-in class product that customers of all sizes can trust. Even though they were already profitable, Kaveh wanted more capital to move faster on his vision to become a compound startup, similar to the likes of Rippling or Wiz, that will help companies manage and optimize their entire infrastructure stack. We are excited to be a part of their journey and look forward to helping them define an emerging category.”

– Patrick Yang, Co-Founder and General Partner at Amity Ventures

“At Deel, efficient cloud operations are essential. We selected Usage.AI for its comprehensive coverage, cost-saving capabilities, customer-centric approach, and automation. Now, our engineering team can focus on customer-centric tasks, not just cloud expense management.”

– Alex Bouaziz, Chief Executive Officer at Deel
