Infrastructure automation company QualiSystems has raised $8 million. The financing round was led by the venture capital arm of a leading cloud company with participation from Qualisystems’ current investors Evergreen Venture Partners, Gemini Israel Funds and Fishman Investments.
QualiSystems will use the proceeds to grow customers and partnerships for CloudShell, its orchestration and automation platform that assists with deployment of heterogeneous, multi-generational IT infrastructures and networks. The company will also continue to maintain and grow its global base of test lab and test automation customers.
CloudShell enables self-service, auto-provisioning and reclamation, and continuous integration over complex environments including physical, virtual and public cloud infrastructure. QualiSystems' lead product also allows IT to deliver agile infrastructure to speed provisioning of converged infrastructure and data center reference architectures, support DevOps processes, and build continuous network certification cycles for SDN and NFV.
The funding reflects not only QualiSystems’ commitment to meeting this need, but also growing recognition of QualiSystems’ leadership as seen by partnerships with industry leaders such as Brocade, Cisco, EMC, Ixia Communications and Mellanox Technologies.
QualiSystems CEO Lior Koriat said, “As organizations evolve their IT and network infrastructure to software-defined and cloud models, achieving rapid time-to-value is a key objective. Securing this funding will allow us to continue to develop our platform to meet the needs of our customers, and to leverage go to market opportunities afforded by our strategic technology and channel partnerships. We anticipate continuing our growth and raising the industry standard.”
