Quali, the agile infrastructure automation company, today announces that it has received $8M in funding. The round was led by the venture capital arm of a leading cloud company with participation from Quali's current investors Evergreen, Gemini and Fishman Investments. Quali will leverage this funding to grow customers and partnerships for CloudShell, its orchestration and automation platform that assists with deployment of heterogeneous, multi-generational IT infrastructures and networks, while continuing to maintain and grow its global base of test lab and test automation customers.
Quali’s award-winning CloudShell enables self-service, auto-provisioning and reclamation, and continuous integration over complex environments including physical, virtual and public cloud infrastructure. CloudShell 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.
A key driver in the growth of Quali has been the overall push for cloud adoption. Businesses are seeing the benefits of moving beyond virtualization and creating self-service access to IT infrastructure environments. Likewise, IT organizations recognize the need for orchestration that goes beyond virtualization to address all their diverse infrastructures. The funding reflects not only Quali's commitment to meeting this need, but also growing recognition of Quali's leadership as seen by partnerships with industry leaders such as Brocade, Cisco, EMC, Ixia Communications and Mellanox Technologies.
“As organizations evolve their IT and network infrastructure to software-defined and cloud models, achieving rapid time-to-value is a key objective,” said Lior Koriat, CEO at Quali. “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.”
Quali offers orchestration and automation solutions that deliver agility, productivity and cost savings to data centers, converged infrastructure, software defined networks and test labs. CloudShell and TestShell automate provisioning, self-service, validation and deployment of heterogeneous infrastructure from bare metal to operations, development to deployment, and legacy to cloud and SDN. Quali solutions are deployed by hundreds of service providers, enterprises, government agencies, and technology manufacturers worldwide.
