Caylent Raises $16M in Growth Equity Funding


Caylent, an Irvine, Calif.-based cloud computing services company, raised $16m in growth equity funding.

East Los Capital made the investment.

The company intends to use the funds to open new service lines in the areas of data analytics, machine learning, and cloud application development alongside expanding its geographical footprint across the Americas.

Founded in 2015 and led by JP La Torre, CEO, Caylent is a cloud native services company working with customers to build, scale and optimize cloud solutions using deep subject matter expertise and an agile co-delivery model.

The company was an early contributor to the development of container orchestration software.  Its work with the Cloud Native Computing Foundation as a services provider brought Caylent to broaden its offerings to cover a wide range of cloud native solutions. In addition to its investment round, the company is also announcing a substantial expansion of its relationship with Amazon Web Services (AWS).
