About CloudZero

Founded in 2016 and based in Boston, Massachusetts, CloudZero is SaaS site reliability management platform that allows companies to make cloud system resilient and secure. The company’s core technology platform continuously models the fast-changing surface of today’s cloud computing environment. The system provides insights to better manage and deliver trusted cloud reliability.

CloudZeros’ platform is based on open source technology. But unlike the other technology providers in the market, CloudZero’s platform can predict system fragility, allowing IT engineers to optimize site reliability before trust is compromised. The startup helps companies automatically distribute their data across various cloud servers and providers. The idea is that when one part of that IT system crashes, those companies won’t down with it, the Boston Business reported.

This is not the first time CloudZero has received funding from Matrix Partners and Underscore VC. The startup has already raised $500,000 in seed funding from the two investors last September.

According to CrunchBase, CloudZero has made a total of $5.5 million in venture capital funding. The company has only two investors, Matrix Partners and Underscore VC.

In addition to its latest funding round, CloudZero also announced a new open source project, which they called CloudZero Reactor for AWS. The newly announced open source project will enable the company’s technology platform to model an IT system’s surface, providing more useful insights about the past, present and even future state of the company’s IT systems, according to Finsmes.
