Infrascale, a provider of cloud-based data protection solutions, announced on Thursday that it has received $16.3 million in a Series B round of funding, led by new investor Carrick Capital Partners.
According to El Segundo, Calif.-based Infrascale, the new funding will be used in part to acquire Eversync Solutions, which the company said it would acquire in order to expand its data protection offerings.
The funding will also be used to support company growth and accelerate its go-to-market strategy, the company said.
Infrascale offers a cloud platform for data protection that delivers backup, disaster recovery, archive and collaboration with military-grade security. The company’s platform currently powers more than 1,000 independent cloud service companies.
Eversync makes data protection products including backup, disaster recovery, compliance, deduplication targeted to mid-sized organizations.
“We see a lot of competitive noise in the backup and disaster-recovery markets, but many vendors disappoint because they aren’t secure or robust enough for the enterprise,” said Ken Shaw Jr., founder and CEO of Infrascale. “Infrascale was purpose-built as a complete data protection solution that can accommodate any computing environment, including servers and endpoint devices.”
With this acquisition, Infrascale extends its data protection platform to include support for the growing list of operating systems, servers and devices critical for corporate computing. The combined technology of Infrascale and Eversync create a complete platform for data protection across mobile devices, workstations, and all forms of servers, physical and virtual, the company said.
“Infrascale’s mission is to eliminate the complexity and offer a scalable, unified platform capable of supporting multiple device types, file formats and operating systems,” said Ken Shaw Jr., founder and CEO of Infrascale. “The Eversync acquisition simply extends our lead in delivering complete, data protection for any device, anywhere.”
