Upbound, a Seattle, WA-based cloud-native computing company enabling organizations to run, scale and optimize their services across multiple public and private cloud environments, closed a $9m Series A financing.
The round was led by GV (formerly Google Ventures).
The company intends to use the funds to expand its core engineering and product team, whose current members have experience working at HBO, Lyft, Microsoft, Nutanix, and Symform. In addition, the company also announced that it’s joining the Cloud Native Computing Foundation.
Founded in late 2017 by Bassam Tabbara, CEO, Upbound delivers a multi-cloud platform based on Kubernetes to run, scale and optimize their services across multiple public and private cloud environments.
Its multi-cloud platform will also cater to independent software vendors offering solutions that scale across cloud environments. The company provides ISVs with a multi-cloud control plane to deploy, manage, and optimize their services across multiple clusters.
