CloudBees Secures $10.5 Million in Funding
CloudBees, which offers a cloud-based Platform as a Service (PaaS) for Java applications, has secured $10.5 million in Series B financing from Lightspeed Venture Partners.
The startup company, founded last year by former JBoss CTO Sacha Labourey, offers a Java development- and deployment-based PaaS.
Waltham, Mass.-based CloudBees currently offers two core services: DEV@cloud, which provides a Java-based development infrastructure for building and testing of apps, and RUN@cloud, which provides an app server in the cloud for deployment.
Among CloudBees' customers are Cisco, Digg, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and Sandia National Laboratories.
The company received $4 million in Series A financing in November from Matrix Partners, which also participated in the current round. CloudBees said it will use the funds for product development and to expand sales and marketing efforts.
