The Ajubeo service offering includes virtual datacenters, virtual desktops, cloud-based disaster recovery, cloud-based data backup and restore, and cloud-based systems and application monitoring. Cloud hub locations include data centers in Denver, New York, and London, accessible via secure, private network connections from anywhere in the world. Ajubeo is headquartered in Boulder, CO (www.ajubeo.com).
The new capital will be used to support strong demand, 600% quarterly revenue growth over the past 12 months, for Ajubeo’s enterprise-class Virtual Datacenters, Virtual Desktops, Backup and Restore-as-a-Service and Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service. Specifically, the new capital will fund continued expansion in the New York Metro Area, new product development, staffing, and sales and marketing initiatives.
“The cloud infrastructure market continues to expand at a rapid pace,” said Chuck Price, president and CEO of Ajubeo. “The question is no longer whether infrastructure-as-a-service is a viable alternative to traditional methods. Instead, customers are architecting their IT-based products and services around a diversified cloud strategy. This shift has led to strong demand for high-performance, production-ready cloud services from providers such as Ajubeo.”
