The gradual transition to the cloud over the past several years has introduced a seemingly endless number of newer niche markets. For instance, as the selection of business-enhancing cloud solutions continues to grow and companies invest heavily in cloud infrastructure, those companies need a monitoring tool to optimize their infrastructure. Several startup companies, such as Israel’s Cloudyn, aim to meet this need by offering solutions that facilitate operations of business cloud infrastructure deployments.
Cloudyn is a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS (News - Alert)) solution that is essential for optimizing deployments across public, private and hybrid clouds, and a customized version can be selected for users of Amazon Web Services, Microsoft (News - Alert) Azure, Google Cloud Platform or OpenStack. The platform is a vital tool for making sure a given cloud deployment is the right price and size for the business using it, and that resources are being utilized to their full potential. Cloudyn also offers intelligent analysis of usage and performance trends, provides in-depth insights into these figures, and encourages improvement through customized alerts and actionable recommendations. In turn, the service offers businesses a clear picture of their cloud spending and illuminates opportunities for cutting back on costs, such as through comparisons with similar deployments on competing cloud infrastructure platforms.
Cloudyn recently announced that it has secured an additional $11 million in funding during its latest funding round, for a cumulative total of $16.5 million since the company’s inception in 2011. Carmel Ventures was the major investor in this latest round, with additional contributions supplied by Titanium Investments and RDSeed.
Cloudyn is a simple-to-deploy solution that has now been implemented on more than 200,000 virtual machines and over 12,000 applications. This massive funding round demonstrates the increasing emphasis companies are placing not only on deploying cloud infrastructure, but on ensuring deployments are doing they most they can to make the business successful.
