Mesosphere has almost tripled its revenue year-on-year, according to the company. The company is currently used by over 125 businesses including Tommy Hilfiger, Royal Caribbean, Deutsche Telekom, and NBCUniversal leverages DC/OS.

This investment brings the company’s total funding efforts to over $250m since its foundation in 2013.

T. Rowe Price, KDT and DTA share our vision for building a category-defining company and product are joining forces with ZWC and QIA, who will extend our global footprint, fuelling expansion in APAC and the Middle East.”
