Yotascale ,US startup involved  in next-generation cloud cost management software, has secured $13 million for its Series B round, bringing its total capital raised to $25 million.

The round was led by Felicis Ventures' Aydin Senkut, alongside existing investors, Crosslink Capital, Pelion Ventures, and Engineering Capital.

Yotascale's software provides engineering teams, who are the subject matter experts for their cloud workloads and applications, complete visibility of cloud costs for example Amazon Web Services and Azure, so they can make more cost-effective decisions and independently validate planned usage for faster buying cycles and increased savings of 50%.

Unlike first-generation cost management products on the market, Yotascale's next-generation approach to cloud cost management provides three pillars for a truly collaborative, optimized framework: unified cost management, collaborative cost optimization, and predictive capacity planning.

Yotascale's solution focuses on making the understanding of cloud spend seamless and builds trust with engineering teams--not just providing piecemeal reports that require manual administrative configuration and siloed communications. Yotascale has been widely adopted industry-wide by leading Fortune 1000 companies globally, such as Zoom Video Conferencing, Hulu, and Doordash, driving its 4x revenue growth year-over-year.

Asim Razzaq, Co-Founder and CEO, Yotascale: "For organizations to have effective cost management, there must be a solution that deeply understands the enterprise business and system context; scales with complexity introduced by modern architectures like Kubernetes, containers, micro-services, and multi-cloud deployments; and empowers engineering teams with actionable recommendations they can trust and seamlessly implement. That's why we built Yotascale with engineering teams in mind. Yotascale is trusted by engineering teams at many Fortune 1000 companies. We've made cloud cost management practical and exciting for these teams with the sophistication and effectiveness of our approach."

Yasin Mohammad, Engineering Manager of Cloud Operations, Zoom: "As Zoom has scaled its systems exponentially in current times, Yotascale has been a trusted partner to help keep our massively increasing cloud costs in check. I have been very impressed with the huge ROI they delivered, and I am glad that we had Yotascale already in place prior to the pandemic."

Aydin Senkut, founder and managing partner, Felicis: "As the use of cloud platforms skyrocket, understanding and optimizing cloud costs has become an existential issue for nearly every major company. Yotascale not only provides complete visibility and significant savings, but also allows for accurate cost attribution including usage of micro services. We are pleased to partner with Asim and invest in Yotascale on their journey to become the system of record for cloud cost optimization."
