Cambridge, MA – April 24, 2018 – The 15th annual MIT Sloan CIO Symposium just announced CloudZero as one of the ten finalists for the 2018 Innovation Showcase, as its Serverless Reliability Management platform represents a cutting edge solution that provides both strong value and innovation to the enterprise IT space. CloudZero will receive key exposure to many of the world’s most creative and influential IT executives at the Symposium on May 23, 2018.

“Not since the introduction of cloud computing have we seen a more transformative technology than serverless computing”, said Erik Peterson, CloudZero CEO. “Serverless enables organizations to focus on value creation as opposed to building and managing the infrastructure needed to support the business logic. Serverless also represents a fundamental shift in how software is constructed and has the potential to revolutionize the software industry.”

CloudZero’s platform is built to accelerate this transformation and empower the people responsible for serverless operations. With the platform you can easily monitor and understand your serverless systems as they rapidly evolve. CloudZero is a hosted service with no agents or software to deploy and can connect to your cloud accounts in seconds.

“We are thrilled to award these 10 companies for our 2018 Innovation Showcase,” said Anton Teodorescu, Co-Chair of the Innovation Showcase. “The finalists represent leading edge technologies that will enable enterprises to up their digital game from vision to execution.”

After careful consideration, the Innovation Showcase Judges evaluated and selected CloudZero for this honor based on four important criteria:

  • Have an enterprise IT solution product in the market;
  • Are a start-up with less than $10 million in 2017 annual revenues;
  • Are selling enterprise IT solutions to CIOs or corporate IT departments; and
  • Show innovation and/or strategic value and potential impact on the top and/or bottom lines.

The Innovation Showcase will take place at 5:30 p.m. in the Kresge courtyard tent on Wednesday, May 23, 2018, at MIT in Cambridge, MA. The full agenda for the MIT Sloan CIO Symposium is available at
