Bringing Dynamic Cloud Infrastructure to a Constantly Changing World: Zesty Announces $75 Million Series B

Read More >

I’m proud to share that less than one year after our Series A, Zesty has raised a $75 million Series B to bring our vision of Dynamic Cloud Infrastructure to the DevOps world. 

Dynamic Infra is the antidote to the technical limitations we’re facing in today’s fast-paced business environment. In the past couple of years, we have seen the market fluctuate, our business needs shift at a moment’s notice, and cloud offerings that are constantly growing. Despite all these changes, our infra is static and unable to adapt, leading to rampant cloud inefficiency.

At Zesty, we believe we don’t have to accept this status quo. We believe the cloud is meant to be flexible, scalable, and most of all, efficient. 

It’s this vision that has driven the creation of our products, Commitment Manager and Zesty Disk –– and it’s the North Star that will guide our business forward with all future products, features, and new releases. 

So after this incredible milestone and $116 million in the bank, how do we plan on fulfilling this commitment to our customers? We’ll share our plans below.

The Problem with Static Infrastructure in a Modern World

With this new funding round, Zesty is changing the way modern businesses achieve efficiency with their cloud infrastructure –– transforming resource allocation from a static to a dynamic approach. 

While we initially moved to the cloud to enable rapid business transformation, these dreams have not fully come to fruition due to restrictions inherent to static cloud infrastructure. Such limitations include discount program commitments, pre-set storage volume capacity, CPU and RAM, all of which cannot be continuously adjusted to suit changing demand. With the constant change, there is also the need to monitor and predict workloads in advance and once live, make manual adjustments that are applied far too slowly to keep up with the pace of change.

Developers write code that evolves with changes in technology and business requirements. Yet the cloud infrastructure, which is meant to support growth, scale, and rapid technological advancement remains static. This static infrastructure is too slow and restrictive to accommodate all the changes the applications go through at any given moment. The results are countless wasted engineering hours attempting to predict and manually adjust cloud infrastructure to fit application demand as well as billions of dollars thrown away each year. 

Static infrastructure simply is not working. It limits growth, puts a burden on DevOps engineers, and needlessly inflates cloud costs.

The Promise of Dynamic Cloud Infrastructure

To break the status quo, Zesty is proud to offer a better way to manage infrastructure. Dynamic Cloud Infrastructure means having infra that automatically scales cloud resources to optimally match application demand at any given time, adjusting immediately to any changes as they occur.

Dynamic Cloud Infrastructure is the best practice for any organization looking to run an efficient business that ebbs and flows with demand. 

Our offering for compute predicts EC2 usage and automatically buys and sells AWS Reserved Instances, making adjustments to meet the change in demand. For storage, our offering scales up and down storage volumes, adapting to the specific requirements of each workload, the performance required, and cost limitations. Both solutions enable organizations to dramatically reduce cloud costs, maintain perfect app performance, and minimize the stress of adjusting infrastructure. 

Dynamic Cloud Infrastructure is the answer modern businesses have been looking for, enabling full cloud flexibility and scalability without driving up costs. Finally, businesses can be agile enough to keep up with the pace of change and efficient enough to continue to scale for years to come. 

We’re excited to make dynamic cloud infrastructure achievable for more businesses around the world so they can continue to grow without limitations.

$75 Million to Build the Future of Cloud Infrastructure

With a total of $116 million raised so far, we’re thrilled to see that so many of our investors, customers, partners, and employees believe in our vision of Dynamic Cloud Infrastructure and its promise to accelerate business growth for millions of organizations around the world.

With this new round, Zesty is going to expand our team, build new features, and create new products that radically improve the way infrastructure teams work, turning our vision of Dynamic Cloud Infrastructure into a reality. 

We have a lot of people to thank for bringing us to this milestone. First and foremost, thank you to our dedicated Zesters who spend countless hours going above and beyond for our customers, building our company, and our products. Thank you to our customers and partners for trusting us, challenging us, and pushing us to become the best version of ourselves.  And finally, thank you to our investors for your unwavering support, feedback, and strategic input. 

We are lucky to have all of you by our side, helping us make cloud dreams come true.
