Israeli startup Firefly, which offers a Cloud Control Plane solution, lost one of its founders and CTO Sefi Genis when he was murdered at the Nova Festival massacre during the brutal Hamas terrorist attack of October 7, 2023. The firm just raised $23 million in a Series A round of funding.

Sefi Genis died a hero as he tried to stop the terrorists during the attack; even though, he was unarmed.

The control plane automates the deployment and management of your cloud resources. This includes provisioning virtual machines, storage, and network resources as needed by your applications. It also ensures all your cloud resources are configured consistently and meet your organization’s security and compliance standards. The control plane can deploy and manage your cloud applications. This can involve scaling applications up or down based on demand, and ensuring they are running in a healthy state.

Founded in 2021 by by CEO Ido Neeman, CPO Eran Bibi, and the late CTO Genis,
Fireflys is a Cloud Control Plane solution that enables DevOps, SRE, and Platform Engineering teams to rediscover their entire cloud footprint, understand which parts of it are codified vs unmanaged, detect drifts to prevent service failures, classify assets using Policy-as-Code, and manage a single inventory of all their cloud resources across Multi-Cloud, and Kubernetes clusters.

“With this new funding, Firefly is poised for rapid growth and innovation,” said CPO Eran Bibi. “We plan to expand our go-to-market team, enrich our product offerings, and cater to a broader spectrum of challenges faced by the cloud teams. In the next year, expect to see more sophisticated AI-driven capabilities and an expanded global presence. Looking further ahead, our vision is to make Firefly a benchmark for cloud operations across industries.”
