Cloud Sherpas announced Series A funding of around $1M in May 2010. The company has now raised close to $3M in funding.
Cloud Sherpas will use the new capital to accelerate adoption of Google Apps across major industries. Retail, manufacturing, high-tech, real estate, healthcare and government have been particularly fertile markets.
These and other enterprises are benefiting from Cloud Sherpas expertise migrating users from on-premise platforms-like Microsoft Exchange, IBM Lotus Notes and Novell GroupWise-to the cloud with Google. Implementation sizes range from 75 users to 75,000, with average deployments of around 2,000 seats. As well, customers are aggressively leveraging Cloud Sherpas' proprietary SherpaTools application. Currently the top IT admin tool in the Google Apps Marketplace and one of the "Original 50" apps in the store, SherpaTools is used by over 8,000 companies in 85 countries, with more than 1,200 domains being added every month.
Cloud Sherpas' proven intellectual property, coupled with deep industry expertise and best practices gleaned from hundreds of Google Apps implementations, has been key to accelerating cloud migration, cloud integration and cloud management for enterprises, according to Hallett.
"Partnering with Cloud Sherpas represents the highest value, highest success rate option for enterprises large and small," said Hallett. "We'll use the additional funds to expand our software portfolio so that clients can fully maximize the Google Apps platform. The capital will also allow us to expand our services capability to provide enhanced 3rd party integration to Google's software stack. We're excited to welcome new investors and we look forward to accelerating successful market adoption of Google's enterprise cloud offerings. "
