3Crowd, a startup that provides management tools for cloud-based services, is announcing the public availability of its platform, CrowdDirector.
Founded by BitGravity co-founder Barrett Lyon, 3Crowd’s management tools give enterprises greater controls over content delivery and other cloud services, enabling them to use multiple services at once.
CrowdDirector serves as a content load balancer on a network, allowing enterprises and content owners to manage their sites across multiple CDNs, cloud services, and web servers. The offering allows users to implement rule based load balancing, monitoring and analytics and interoperability with various cloud environments.
The startup, which now counts Break Media and Revision3 as customers, just raised $6.62 million in Series A financing from Canaan Partners and Storm Ventures. The startup previously raised an undisclosed amount of angel funding from investors, including Jay Adelson, Kevin Rose, Storm Ventures, and Greenwich Technology Associates.
