“Cloud governance, cost management and utilization will continue to be major problems to solve in the world of multiple cloud environments. CoreStack’s product offering is uniquely positioned to become the foundation for multi-cloud governance in a modern enterprise. In addition, as an enterprise focused seed fund, Z5 Capital and its investment team will bring significant value to Corestack as it goes to market” adds Raymie Stata, Ex CTO of Yahoo!, Founder & CEO of Altiscale (acquired by SAP).
