Monitoring continues to be a valuable part of the hybrid cloud, as Sensu raises $10M
“Sensu Enterprise is the commercial version of that project, and it costs between $99 and $999 depending on how many servers you’ll need to monitor your cloud environment. You also get customer service that you won’t get if you try to install the open-source project on your own, a key part of the strategy of many enterprise startups building around open-source projects.”

Growing Pains: The 2018 Internet of Things Landscape
‘The promise of the IoT was always to create “smart” objects – it is certainly nice to get data from the physical world and gain more insights, but ultimately the whole point is to act on that data, ideally in an automated, real-time and intelligent way. This is exactly what AI enables.’

Also, some notes on VC investments and startups: 'As in previous years, one of the peculiarities of the IoT VC market is that the most active investors in the space are disproportionately corporate venture arms.'

Tasktop receives $11m series A to fund its ALM and devops integration ambitions
One of the companies I’ve followed closely over the years took funding recently, for the first time. This short Analyst Note covers the funding, including this quick market overview: We expect to see more interest in the development space, driven not only by devops but also by companies’ increasing desire to use custom-written software to expand their business. Vendors like Atlassian are also riding this wave – Atlassian reported fiscal 2013 revenue of $149m for its ALM offerings. The developer tools space should be fun over the next year. The most recent, fuller report we did TaskTop is from April.

Concurrent crams venture capitalist cash into its big Hadoop port • The Register
In many ways the turnaround at the company is a reflection of trends in the broader Hadoop community, which spent much of last year dealing with the fallout of hyped tech claims and false promises. This year, by contrast, some businesses seem to be finally squeezing some real value out of the tech, bringing a new round of enthusiasm (and cash) into the startups involved with the tech.

Slack is a chat app that lets robots speak to humans – Quartz
By way of example, Butterfield said that there are about 2,000 messages a day written by humans in Slack at his company. Another 6,000 more are generated automatically by machines. With such a high volume of information, having it all in one place, ordered, highly searchable, and with human chat layered on top helps make a fragmented and overwhelming amount of communication easier to deal with. Sounds good to me; I wonder if the email zombies will see the light this time.

IT ops startup Boundary raises $22m C round to expand R&D, sales and marketing
I put up a short, “analyst note” on Boundary’s funding today, which 451 clients can read in full. Tracking from our last report on them in November 2013, they’ve increased both customer count and average deal size, so good for them. I always found it hard to find the market sizing for “systems management delivered over public cloud” (or “IT Management as a Service”/ITMaaS) market when I was at Dell looking at that. Thankfully, we track ITMaaS at 451. As I put in the analyst note: Boundary participates in the ITMaaS market, which was at $1.1bn in 2013 and growing at ~35% CAGR to $2.5bn in 2016, according to our Market Monitor service estimates.

Cloudera Raises $900 Million, Declares War On Legacy Data Center Vendors – ReadWrite
Mike Olson of Cloudera on the Intel relationship: It genuinely is true that the important story here is the commercial relationship we’ve crafted with Intel. We go to market together, and that’s fantastic for us both—we reach many more customers directly and through our partners. We build better software that takes advantage of Intel silicon innovations, and get it into the open source sooner. Our customers get the best product earlier and get more value from their data. And then Matt Asay to drive the point home: By claiming $740 million of Intel’s money, Cloudera now has its attention in a big way. The cash is nice, but it’s the relationship that matters. The official Cloudera press release on the $900m round puts Intel’s stake at 18%. Also, Matt Aslett over at 451 has an analysis on who Cloudera might acquire with that pile of cash: While we expect Cloudera’s M&A strategy to be driven by products that complement Cloudera Manager, we also see opportunities for the company to purchase vendors and technologies that complement the core Hadoop distribution. At this level, we are not talking so much about Cloudera wanting to ‘own’ Hadoop-related projects in the traditional sense, but to boost its own talent in key areas as well as bring its resources to bear to accelerate adoption.

The influx of cash in technology is largely the result of the low interest-rate environment, Bill Gurley, a partner at venture firm Benchmark, said in a March 12 interview on Bloomberg West. Yields on 10-year Treasuries have hovered below 3 percent since 2011. “There’s a lot of capital searching for a home,” said Gurley.

Linux cloud world's best kept secret DigitalOcean just bagged $37m • The Register
Some pundits may argue that it is also going up against Amazon Web Services, but this is not the case: at around 5,000 Intel-powered Dell and SuperMicro servers the company fields around five percent of Rackspace’s fleet, and at most one per cent of Amazon’s. … This funding caps off a period of torrential growth for the company. In January 2013, it had about 2,000 customers and by the end of the year it was closer to 100,000, Uretsky said. Hey, that SoftLayer investment worked out well.

How to Raise Money
Paul Graham on how startups should deal with asking for investment: I mentioned earlier that investors prefer to wait if they can. What’s particularly dangerous for founders is the way they wait. Essentially, they lead you on. They seem like they’re about to invest right up till the moment they say no. If they even say no. Some of the worse ones never actually do say no; they just stop replying to your emails. They hope that way to get a free option on investing. If they decide later that they want to invest—usually because they’ve heard you’re a hot deal—they can pretend they just got distracted and then restart the conversation as if they’d been about to. In my experience working on business development and M&A, this is true of partnerships and buyers as well. The good startups I’d work with would take one or two meetings, and if it went nowhere, they’d want very clear, actionable next steps to talk more. Occasionally, often in the parking lot walking some startup executive to their rental car, I’d say, “look, we’ll always take a meeting with you, but it’s probably going to go nowhere, so manage appropriately.”

Exclusive: Jawbone raises more than $100 million - The Term Sheet: Fortune's deals blogTerm Sheet
“We’ve been experiencing crazy sell-through demand, particularly since the relaunch of Up,” explains Hosain Rahman, Jawbone’s founder and CEO. “It’s been faster than anything we’d had before, and equity is not the most efficient way to scale all that. If you’re a software company with high demand, you just call Amazon (AMZN) and add more servers to your AWS account. But when you build a physical good, there is a lot more that goes into it – ordering materials, manufacturing, delivery… Debt is the most efficient way to finance that.”
