cloudability CEO Series: Mat Ellis, Founder & CEO of CloudabilityWe’ve been covering Cloudability for a while, since back in November 2011 when we introduced the company to our readers. Since then, the company has enjoyed good coverage, some healthy funding and progress with their product.

Cloudability’s platform aggregates customers’ cloud costs into accessible and comprehensive reports to help manage spending, reduce waste, and identify opportunities for cost savings. The company is based in Portland, Oregon, funded by Trinity Ventures, Walden Venture Capital and a consortium of angel investors.

Cloudability was a Tech Stars Cloud and Under The Radar participant.

We had the chance to interview the founder and CEO, Mat Ellis, recently and asked him about his progress and future plans of the company. The interview was led by Martin Tantow, founder and editor-in-chief of CloudTimes.
