Aviatrix Systems, a pioneer in hybrid cloud networking, today announced that it has raised $15 million in Series B funding. The oversubscribed round, which brings the company’s total funding to $25 million, was led by new investor CRV and joined by existing investors Formation 8 and Ignition Partners. The funding will enable Aviatrix to expand its operations to support its rapidly growing customer base, help drive new strategic partnerships, and expand the reach of its market-leading cloud networking solutions.
As enterprises increasingly migrate their development and test environments, disaster recovery, identity management, and other business-critical applications to the cloud, some components still reside in on-premise data centers, necessitating a hybrid cloud model. Aviatrix helps customers accelerate their hybrid cloud strategies by abstracting, automating, and simplifying networking across data centers and different cloud providers.
“Aviatrix’s disruptive vision is to make hybrid cloud networking as simple, dynamic, and elastic as compute and storage,” said Steven Mih, CEO of Aviatrix. “This is an exciting time for Aviatrix, as we expand on the success of our one-click hybrid cloud networking solution which helps our customers simplify and accelerate migration of their applications to the cloud. We look forward to working with our financial partners and advisory board to further develop our business and continue to bring meaningful cloud networking products to market.”
“CRV looks for talented teams and companies with leadership positions in high growth markets like hybrid cloud networking, and we’re very excited to work with Aviatrix to help scale their business and continue their impressive traction,” said Devdutt Yellurkar, general partner, CRV. As part of today’s announcement, Yellurkar has joined the Aviatrix board of directors.

Modern applications are driven by vastly different needs than those of the past. Today’s applications require resources from multiple providers, and are not tied to a single location, such as an on-premises data center or a single, public cloud provider. These applications require rapid changes in design to meet workload or customer needs, and cannot be constrained by traditional networking architecture.
Networking startup Aviatrix enables enterprises to build scalable and secure private networks across multiple public cloud providers. Enterprises can build a hybrid cloud network via Aviatrix’s central controller, which is deployable either in the cloud or in the enterprise data center.
Leveraging in-depth interviews with Aviatrix customers, this paper identifies the use cases enterprises can pursue with this hybrid cloud networking solution, and it quantifies the cost savings and business benefits that can be realized.
To keep up with rapid prototyping, continuous development and integration, enterprise IT organizations are transforming their traditional server deployment and maintenance functions to a more strategic role that handles the selection, integration, and delivery of IT services for the cloud.
