Webscale, the world’s safest cloud automation enterprise with dedicated efforts toward eCommerce, on March 4, 2021, broke the news of securing USD 26 million in growth capital financing from investors and Silicon Valley Bank.

The financing event was a Series C round led by BGV, STCAP Ventures, and Mohr Davidow Ventures and witnessed participation from Grotech Ventures.

Investment in Webscale’s comprehensive eCommerce platform indeed is most relevant than ever. Amid the coronavirus restrictions and life-modifying consumer habits, Webscale surged 108% in 2020, driving a large number of storefronts, most significantly the ones making most of newer trends with headless and progressive web app (PWA) architecture.

The company’s growth pattern is expected to persist, considering increasing merchant demand for more flexibility, security, streamlined deployments, and scale for a smooth user experience.

Why Webscale?

A multi-cloud SaaS solution engineered around DevSecOps best practices and displaying the world’s individual predictive auto-scaling engine, the company on the eCommerce grounds is prepared to serve merchants of any size, with any demand. Along with its progressive network of digital agency partners, the company supports merchants of all sizes to stay competitive at a high scale to compete with the likes of Amazon, without the prerequisite of bank-breaking investments into technology.

Unlike headless-first tech players, Webscale aids merchants to adopt new technologies and enhance their significant investments in CRM systems and ERP without the need for “rip and replace” of their ongoing solutions.

The company provides flexible, cloud infrastructure for several eCommerce platforms and architectures, with deployments from headless/JAMStack solutions, to PWAs and end-to-end managed hosting setups from platforms such as Magento, SAP Hybris, and WooCommerce.Additionally, the company made a recent addition with an introduction to a variety of edge solutions that address the well-known security and performance loopholes in platforms like Salesforce Commerce Cloud, Shopify, and BigCommerce.
