Having this capital allows us to bring the vision of accelerated cloud adoption to a wider audience.” Aya Peterburg, Founder and Managing Partner of S Capital also added, “as companies increasingly move their business-critical workloads to the cloud, it is more important than ever that their cloud infrastructure offer them the performance these workloads demand.
