Today the UberCloud announced a Pre-A $1.7M funding round led by Earlybird Venture Capital. In addition, Roland Manger, co-founder and partner of Earlybird, has joined the UberCloud Board of Directors.
“UberCloud has created an entire cloud computing ecosystem for complex technical simulations, leveraging cloud infrastructure providers, developing and utilizing middleware container technology, and bringing on board established and proven application software providers, all for the benefit of a growing community of engineers and scientists that need to solve critical technical problems on demand,” said Roland Manger, co-founder and Partner at Earlybird. “While technical computing has been slow to adopt the benefits of the Cloud, we are convinced that UberCloud can be a catalyst for change.” Roland combines a long-standing investment track record with entrepreneurial and operational experience in leading roles at early stage companies, and has been involved in several successful startups, most recently at Hazelcast, UiPath, and Peak Games.
UberCloud is the online Community, Marketplace, and Software Container Factory where engineers, scientists,and their service providers, discover try, and buy ubiquitous high-performance computing power and Software-as-a-Service from Cloud resource providers and application software vendors around the world. Engineers and scientists can explore, discuss, and use computing power on demand to solve critical design and developmentproblems. Unique UberCloud software container technology (based on Docker) simplifies software packageability and portability, enables ease of access and instant use of engineering SaaS solutions, and maintains scalability across multiple compute nodes.
“We here at Plug & Play are super excited for UberCloud, and their extraordinary growth in the field of High Performance Cloud Computing alongside other big players in the market,” said Alireza Masrour, Managing Partner at Plug & Play Ventures and Founding Partner of the Plug & Play Startup Camp. “We’re looking forward to being a part of the UberCloud team in the future!”
