LIBERTY LAKE, Wash., September 29, 2022 (Newswire.com) - Vega Cloud, a leader in automating cloud optimization, announced today that it has completed a $9 million equity and debt funding round led by Album VC and Sun Mountain Capital, respectively, including participation from Kick-Start, Incisive Ventures, Rudeen & Company, the Cowles Company, Tacoma Ventures, Tapas Capital, the Seattle Alliance of Angels, and other new and existing Vega investors.

With the support of highly motivated, successful investors who see the disruptive potential of Vega in the multi-cloud FinOps space, Vega can continue to help more companies to optimize their cloud usage and minimize their cloud spend," said Kris Bliesner, co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Vega Cloud.

The Vega Platform helps clients with better visibility and organization of their cloud infrastructure with an industry-first unified view across major providers, with simplification of core optimization routines and with a concentrated focus on what matters most: lowering the cost of cloud consumption.
"Enterprise organizations are primed to benefit from Vega's proprietary unit economics and value-based automation approach to cloud optimization. Today's organizations demand cloud spend to be tied to business value and are looking for meaningful ways to accomplish that," said John Mayfield, Partner, Album VC. "The collaborative working relationships between client teams and their ability to use data-driven insights to make iterative improvements to unit economics speaks to the effectiveness of this platform."
"Vega helps customers better consume public cloud by eradicating waste and simplifying optimization in highly complex cloud environments." said Kevin Barber, Managing Director, Sun Mountain Private Credit.
