Pulumi, the leading open source Infrastructure as Code platform, announced $41 million in Series C funding led by Madrona with participation from NEA, Tola Capital, and Strike Capital. This round brings Pulumi’s total funding to $99 million. Pulumi will use the investment to make cloud infrastructure easily accessible to everyone – innovating on its open source platform, advancing infrastructure security and bringing the power of generative AI to cloud engineers and developers.
Pulumi is critical to global enterprises now that it is the leading open source Infrastructure as Code provider,” said S. Somasegar, Managing Director of Madrona and Pulumi board member. “With the size and complexity of cloud infrastructure rapidly increasing as enterprises continue their digital transformation journey, the scale, power, and ease of use that Pulumi provides is more valuable than ever.”
The new funding builds on a strong period of innovation and growth for Pulumi, which doubled revenue over the past year and now counts over 2,000 customers and 150,000 users on its platform. New enterprise deployments in the last year include Univision, Moderna, Pinecone, the LEGO Group, and many others, all of whom are using Pulumi to accelerate their own innovation. More than half of the Fortune 50 now use Pulumi to help tame cloud complexity.
“We run due diligence calls every day, and we were awestruck by how much customers love the product,” said John Lagomarsino, General Partner at Strike Capital. “Pulumi has created incredible fans and a loyal following among cloud engineers and developers.”
Pulumi recently announced Pulumi Insights, which provides analytics and search across cloud infrastructure, and Pulumi AI, which allows developers to generate infrastructure as code using natural-language. The company has also seen mounting industry accolades this year, having been named among the top 5% of the Inc. 5000 Fastest Growing Companies in America and listed among Redpoint Ventures’ InfraRed 100 transformative companies in cloud infrastructure.
Pulumi also announced the appointment of Bob Laskey as Chief Customer Officer (CCO). Laskey brings more than 25 years of cloud software leadership experience to Pulumi, having led highly-successful revenue teams at Cloudflare and Microsoft. As CCO, Laskey will focus on improving the experience of Pulumi’s growing customer base, and developing its partner ecosystem and professional services.
“This funding will accelerate our growth and enable us to solve even more of our customers’ toughest cloud challenges,” said Pulumi co-founder and CEO Joe Duffy. “The modern cloud changes everything and, as the leading open source Infrastructure as Code provider, we look forward to continuing to work closely with our community to reimagine how the world programs the cloud.”
