Former Amazon, Microsoft engineers raise $120K for Seattle cloud startup Cloudshim – GeekWire

A new startup out of Seattle called Cloudshim just raised $120,000 to help grow the company’s self-serve cloud management platform.

Founded by two brothers who previously worked at Microsoft and Amazon — Lokesh Taneja and Vishal Taneja — Cloudshim aims to help companies manage cloud infrastructure services and track associated cloud costs.

“Most competitor products have gone upmarket, tailoring their product around enterprise requirements,” said Lokesh Taneja. “This has left a void to be filled for customers that just want a simple and quick way to manage their cloud without heavy contractual processes.”

The software currently supports Amazon Web Services users but will soon expand to Google Cloud and Microsoft Azure.

Black Lion Ventures was the sole investor in the “pre-seed” round. Cloudshim plans to raise a larger round in the next year. The company employs nine people.
