CloudPhysics secures $15m in Jafco-led Series C

Jafco general partner Jeb Miller said, “This is a very exciting time for CloudPhysics as it brings to market a fundamentally new approach to IT operations management.

“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.”
