Scalr, a global provider of hybrid cloud management solutions, is expanding its U.S. operations to meet increasing demand for its cloud management products. On the heels of its 200% year-over-year (YoY) revenue growth in 2017, which was followed by 1H 2018 revenue that more than doubled over 1H 2017, Scalr has opened a new office in Boston, Michigan, to accommodate additional employees.
Scalr’s Boston operation, which had five employees as of January 1, 2018, had 15 employees by July 2018 and will add several more by year’s end, prompting the recent move to a larger office near Boston’s South Station. The company is has its headquarters located in San Francisco.
“Hybrid cloud adoption is growing incredibly fast because businesses believe it will accelerate their operations and enable them to compete more aggressively,” said Sebastian Stadil, Founder and CEO of Scalr. “This is true, but it also introduces a huge amount of complexity and puts enterprises at high risk of runaway costs and security breaches. As Scalr’s revenue and partner growth attests, our unique approach to hybrid cloud management – which gives users the flexibility to innovate quickly without compromising budgets, security or compliance – is compelling for global organizations. Boston’s great talent pool and culture of innovation make it an ideal city for Scalr to build out our company and capitalize on this opportunity.”
Scalr’s Hybrid Cloud Management Platform would reduce IT friction through software-defined governance, accelerated service delivery, actionable insights, and cost management across hybrid and multi-cloud environments at enterprise scale. Because Scalr’s platform enforces preventative and reactive policies at the organization level, not the application level, Scalr would make it easy for IT and finance departments to give business units and teams the freedom to establish their own guardrails, while ensuring they’re operating within corporate policies and budgetary parameters.
Scalr’s “unique” approach to cloud management would bridge the gap between central IT and business units that was created when developers went ‘rogue’ with public cloud. It would provide users the opportunity to safely consume cloud workloads via self-service, while IT/finance get the control they need, and the channel community has advanced tools available for supporting their customers’ cloud transformation journeys.
