I’m proud to announce that CloudBees has just closed an $11.2 million Series C financing round. The round was led by Verizon Ventures, along with our current investors, Matrix Partners and Lightspeed Venture Partners, as well as angel and private investors .
This news comes on the heels of CloudBees being positioned by Gartner in the “Visionaries” quadrant of the newly published Magic Quadrant for Enterprise aPaaS and our recent partnership announcement with Verizon Cloud . Needless to say this is a great time for CloudBees!
2013 has been a very important year for CloudBees. Continuous Delivery is radically re-shaping the way enterprises deliver value to the business by accelerating the way applications are built and deployed. CloudBees holds a strategic position at the core of this phenomenon and has been going through tremendous growth, both on-premise and in the public cloud, thanks to our innovative Jenkins CI and PaaS-based solutions.
I'd like to take this opportunity to share my pride for the amazing work that has been achieved by our team and congratulate them all: working in an environment where the overall good of the company comes before individual egos and performance is very powerful. And humbling.
In 2014, we obviously aim to drive continued sales growth and product expansion, but we will also be announcing more partnerships aimed at bringing the power of Continuous Delivery to more developers, more solutions and more businesses around the globe.
