Cloud Networking-as-a-Service startup Alkira emerged from stealth mode in 2020 with its consumption-based Cloud Services Exchange (CSX), a unified, on-demand offering that lets cloud architects and network engineers build and deploy a multi-cloud network in minutes. Since then, the company has unveiled a close collaboration with the Microsoft for Startups program, as well as a deeper relationship with Amazon Web Services, whose Marketplace includes Alkira CSX.
San Jose, Calif.-based Alkira in October announced a $54 million Series B funding round led by Koch Disruptive Technologies, raising its total funding to $76 million to date. The three-year-old startup is going to market primarily though channel partners, Alkira told CRN.
