FieldView Solutions, a maker of data center infrastructure management software, has closed on $2 million in fresh capital from SJF Ventures, Milestone Venture Partners and Osage Venture Partners. The money will help the company expand its development team, among other efforts. Edison, New Jersey-based Fieldview closed a $2.75 million Series A round in 2009.
FieldView Solutions, a provider of industry-leading data center infrastructure management (DCIM) software, today announced it has completed a $2 million growth capital round from investor partners SJF Ventures, Milestone Venture Partners and Osage Venture Partners. The new funding will be used to help the company expand its growing market share and expand FieldView’s go-to market and development team.
FieldView Solutions’ core platform — FieldView — allows data center managers, IT personnel, facilities managers and even C-level executives, a view into the performance of their mission-critical data center environments. Every aspect of data center operations — from the IT device and rack through the power and cooling infrastructure — is instantly visible and accessible. The powerful metrics and reporting engine provides real-time information, enabling data center operators to optimize rack/room space utilization, energy efficiency, and infrastructure resiliency.
“The extraordinary successes we have had over the past 18 months since our initial funding is due to the value proposition we bring to customers and to the fact that our solution is able to be deployed across a broad spectrum of locations at the enterprise level,” said Fred Dirla, CEO of FieldView Solutions. “We are privileged to have some of the top international names in financial services, co-location, publishing, insurance and more as our customers. These customers as well as respected industry investors, who continue to invest in FieldView, are a true indicator to the value we bring within the DCIM space. This latest round of funding will ensure our accelerated trajectory, while delivering the highest quality product in the market.”
“FieldView Solutions has experienced strong demand by addressing a significant pain point in the rapidly growing data center market,” said Nate Lentz, Managing Partner of Osage Venture Partners. “The company continues to meet our strict investment criteria: showing significant positive momentum, offering an innovative solution to address an unmet need in the market, and demonstrating a compelling return on investment to their customers.”
