Arrcus, the hyperscale networking software company and a leader in core, edge and multi-cloud network infrastructure, announced the close of a financing round “that brings to $50 million the total capital raised since the last venture financing round.”

Prosperity7 Ventures is leading the Series D investment round.

Shekar Ayyar, CEO and chairman at Arrcus, said:

We believe Arrcus is a disruptive leader in next generation network infrastructure that is software defined, flexible, programmable and efficient; and we are excited to support the company and its distinguished team.”

In this round of financing, Prosperity7 is “joined by existing investors Clear Ventures, General Catalyst, Liberty Global and Lightspeed, as well as Silicon Valley Bank, which provided credit facilities.”

Upon completion of this financing round, “in an investment climate where many companies are being marked down, Arrcus’ valuation will nearly double, which is a true testimony of the company’s leadership.”

The new funds will be “used to grow Arrcus’ global go-to-market presence, in addition to strengthening engineering and R&D talent.”

Even as markets overall were skittish and flat-to-declining revenue was the norm for most companies at the end of 2022, Arrcus claims that it “finished the year strong and has a powerful advantage going into 2023. Key data points that demonstrate its strong performance include:”

Brad Casemore, IDC research vice president, cloud and datacenter networking, said:

“As organizations worldwide adopt truly digital infrastructure to further their business strategies, they increasingly recognize that network modernization is essential to success. Network modernization involves greater network agility, flexibility, programmability and resilience, achieved through software-defined automated network intelligence. The Arrcus Connected Edge (ACE) platform has been designed with these capabilities in mind, addressing use cases that span the data center, core and edge, while providing operating efficiencies that allow customers to control infrastructure costs and accelerate the launch of revenue-generating network services.”
