Cloud computing solution provider Cloud Sherpas has secured $1.6 million in series A-1 funding, cash the company will use to continue boosting its cloud computing profile and its offerings around Google Apps.
In two and a half years, the Atlanta-based cloud VAR has moved more than 600,000 enterprise users to the Google Apps platform, Google's cloud computing communication and collaboration offerings. Additionally, Cloud Sherpas' software is in use at more than 8,000 companies, representing more than 1.5 million Google Apps users. Cloud Sherpas has done this while realizing zero percent lifetime churn on annual software license renewals.
"Things have just continued to accelerate," said Cloud Sherpas founder Michael Cohn.
And the $1.6 billion funding boost will help Cloud Sherpas continue its path. The company has now raised close to $3 million in funding, with about $1 million coming during Series A funding in May 2010
Cohn said Cloud Sherpas successes in part stem from the cloud computing market maturing, the functionality and cost savings offered by Google Apps and more interest in cloud solutions as a whole.
