“When NEA first invested in CloudFlare in 2011, I thought it was one of the most exciting companies I’d ever seen,” said Scott Sandell, General Partner at NEA. “That conviction has only increased with the company’s continued technological innovation and extraordinary growth.”
$50 million Series C funding
After quietly raising a $50 million Series C funding round from Union Square Ventures and Greenspring Associates, with existing investors NEA, Pelion Venture Partners, and Venrock participating, the content delivery network (CDN) provider has further expanded its global infrastructure.
With the capital infusion from its series C round that closed in December 2012, CloudFlare quadrupled its network capacity across 23 global data centers and established an engineering office in London. The company plans to continue its rapid network expansion in 2014 with new data center locations coming soon in Latin America, the Middle East, Africa and China.
The CloudFlare CDN
CloudFlare’s content delivery network would make sites twice as fast. The CDN solution also protects websites from attacks, ensures they are always online, and makes it simple to add web apps with a single click. CloudFlare supercharges websites regardless of size or platform with no need to add hardware, install software, or change a line of code. CloudFlare is headquartered in San Francisco, California.
