5 freshly-funded cloud computing companies worth watching

Bob Brown | March 30, 2015
Venture capitalists pour funds into cloud companies old and new, including Aryaka, Hedvig and BetterCloud

According to a blog post from CELO Politis, "We plan to use our current position as a launching point for even more innovation in the cloud insights, management, and security space. We have taken a number of big risks recently and the market continues to validate that the direction we're moving in is the right one. So, we will continue to evolve and aggressively go after our big vision."

Finally, the newest of all of these cloud companies is software-defined storage startup Hedvig, which after three years of stealth development emerged this week and announced it had received $12.5 million in seed/Series A funding led by True Ventures and Atlantic Bridge.

The company is the brainchild of CEO Avinash Lakshman, who while at Amazon co-created Dynamo (genesis of NoSQL) and while at Facebook co-developed the open source Cassandra distributed database management system.

Hedvig's products are designed to work in data centers and across private/hybrid/public clouds.
