Weaveworks Heads to the Cloud

VIDEO: The CEO and COO of Weaveworks discuss the container networking and monitoring vendor's debut of a beta of a new cloud service.

On May 11, container networking and monitoring vendor Weaveworks announced that it had raised a $15 million Series B round of funding. At the time of the Series B news, Weaveworks Chief Operating Officer Mathew Lodge hinted at some cloud news to come, which did in fact come on June 20 with the public beta of the Weave Cloud.

Weaveworks has several core applications, including Weave Net, which is a software-defined networking (SDN) technology for containers, and Weave Scope, a visualization tool for container microservices. Weave Cloud provides a software-as-a-service (SaaS) version of Weaveworks' application, together with a dashboard to help organizations make the best use of out container deployments.

In a video interview with eWEEK, Lodge and Weaveworks CEO Alexis Richardson, detail what Weave Cloud is all about and where the company is seeing some early interest.
