CliQr, a provider of hybrid cloud management services, has secured $20m in series C funding in an investment round led by Polaris Partners with participation from Foundation Capital, Google Ventures and TransLink Capital.
It can be tricky managing workloads that sit on diverse public and private cloud platforms, within one pane of glass, and even more difficult making sure those workloads port over to different cloud platforms that are distributed to varying degrees.
That’s the space CliQr fills with its flagship software offering, Cloud Centre; the company says its offering is based on proprietary “app-centric” technologies that enable hybrid cloud workload lifecycle management without having to do any scripting or tweaking under the hood of the migrated apps.
The latest funding round, which brings the total amount secured by the company since its founding to $38m, will be used to bolster CliQr’s expansion globally.
“CliQr built its technology and reputation by listening to customers about their requirements for the cloud,” said Gaurav Manglik, chief executive officer and co-founder of CliQr.
“To meet our customers’ needs, we are delivering on our vision for unshackling applications from the complexity of ever-changing hybrid cloud environments. Our approach is validated by a strong product platform, enterprise customers, worldwide partners and top-tier investors. We’re ready to put this new investment to work by helping us expand globally to meet skyrocketing demand for our platform,” Manglik said.
