Enterprise Ireland High Potential Start-Up

“CloudRanger’s proprietary approach to visual server management has driven incredible growth, including a 150 percent increase in monthly recurring revenue and doubling the number of users, since the launch of our Server Management Platform in June 2017,” said Mr. Gildea. “The support of Enterprise Ireland and our other investors enables CloudRanger to further develop its platform, with the ultimate aim to become the leading provider of cross-cloud automation and disaster management worldwide.”
