Mountain View, CA (PRWEB) April 27, 2012
Cloudmeter (previously Atomic Labs), the big data capture and analytics company, today announced that it has closed a $5 million Series A round of financing. The round was led by Meakem Becker Venture Capital (MBVC) and will support the company’s introduction of its next generation Real User Monitoring as a Service (MaaS) offering. The Cloudmeter MaaS solution, to be introduced later this year, is designed to help customers understand and improve their end-users’ experiences. It targets cloud-based as well as datacenter and hybrid applications, and focuses on providing the most relevant and effective information with ease of use and cost in mind.
The investment will also allow the company to expand development, sales and marketing to support growing demand for its current Pion Enterprise and Pion Replay products. Pion Enterprise is a real-time big data capture, processing and integration solution that helps companies maximize the value of the massive amounts of information available within their network traffic. Pion Replay is a customer experience management product that enables companies to identify, find and replay individual website visitor sessions.
Concurrent with the investment, the company has also changed its name from Atomic Labs, Inc. to Cloudmeter, Inc., aligning its name with its future direction. The company expects to finalize the rebranding process over the next few months.
“I am thrilled to be working again with Glen Meakem and Dave Becker, and am very excited about our soon to be introduced Cloudmeter MaaS solution,” said Mike Dickey, Cloudmeter Founder and CEO. “Cloudmeter’s MaaS solution is designed to allow customers of all sizes to improve their end-users’ experience without breaking their budgets. It is the result of our team’s many years of experience helping customers leverage the large amounts of data that go through their networks for the benefit of their end-users and businesses.”
“I am very excited about working again with Mike and about Cloudmeter’s upcoming MaaS product as well as the growing demand for its current real-time big data analytics and replay solutions”, said Glen Meakem, Managing Director of MBVC. “We invested in the previous company Mike founded (BeatBox, acquired by Mercury/HP) and were very impressed with Mike’s ability to introduce pioneering and innovative solutions that become market standards. We believe Cloudmeter is uniquely positioned to help customers of all sizes meet the mounting demand to provide positive user experiences while at the same time curbing costs.”
