CloudPhysics Announces $15 Million in Funding From Jafco Ventures, Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers and Mayfield

Series C Financing to Fuel Adoption of Predictive Analytics for Virtual Datacenter Management

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/24/14 -- CloudPhysics, who provides predictive analytics for virtual datacenter management, today announced it has secured $15 million in a Series C round of funding, led by venture capital firm Jafco Ventures with participation from the company's existing investors Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers and Mayfield. CloudPhysics, who has raised $27.5 million to date, will use the funding to invest further in developing its groundbreaking SaaS solution, which leverages Big Data analytics to enable IT to uncover hidden operational hazards before problems emerge and identifies radical efficiency improvements in virtualized IT operations management. The company will also use the funding to expand go-to-market activities and scale the company's business.

The company today also announced the general availability of Storage Analytics, a new release of its predictive analytics solution that dramatically simplifies the overwhelming complexities of managing storage resources in the virtual datacenter: http://www.cloudphysics.com/press_releases/cloudphysics-releases-storage-analytics-for-virtual-datacenters.

"This is a very exciting time for CloudPhysics as it brings to market a fundamentally new approach to IT operations management," said Jeb Miller, General Partner at Jafco Ventures and CloudPhysics Board Member. "Through Big Data analytics, CloudPhysics is shifting the focus of infrastructure management from reactive to predictive, enabling more intelligent and cost-effective IT. Jafco Ventures didn't want to miss this opportunity to invest in CloudPhysics and its vision, and we're excited to bring the full range of Jafco's resources into the mix to help the company ramp in the market."

CloudPhysics was founded in 2011 with the mission to continuously deliver insights to IT teams for actively managing the dynamics of their virtualized infrastructures. To that end, the company's servers collect a daily stream of more than 140 billion samples of configuration, performance, failure and event data from its global user base, with a total of 50+ billion samples collected to date. This "Collective Intelligence," combined with CloudPhysics' patent-pending data center simulation and unique resource management techniques, empowers enterprise IT to drive Google-like operations excellence, using actionable analytics from a large, relevant, continually refreshed dataset.

"Big Data technology is used by companies across numerous industries to discover new ways to improve operations. Ironically, one industry that is missing from the list is IT itself -- and our vision is to remedy that," said John Blumenthal, CloudPhysics co-founder and CEO. "The new funding will help us accelerate product innovation as well as fuel our sales and marketing efforts, expanding our growing base of users and bringing the power of data-driven decision making to IT admins everywhere."

Since its initial product release at VMware's VMworld 2013, the company has garnered numerous awards and accolades in recognition of its innovation, which include being named a Top 10 Virtualization Company to Watch in 2014 by TechTarget SearchServerVirtualization, a Top 10 Big Data Startup to Watch by Network World and one of the 21 hottest startups by Business Insider.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

The only way to get CICD to work in a highly secure environment takes collaboration, patience and persistence. Building CICD in the cloud requires rigorous ar...
Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
