About Ravello Systems


Ravello was founded in early 2011 with the sole purpose of changing the way companies, large and small consume the public cloud. Ravello is brought to you by the team that introduced the KVM hypervisor (now the standard virtualization technology in Linux). We have deep expertise in virtualization, cloud, networking and storage technologies.

We realized that while cloud computing changes everything, there are significant gaps between the current state of IT and where it will be when the cloud is fully adopted. This creates challenges for enterprises and opportunities for start-ups.

From our own experience, and from conversations with many leaders in the industry, it became apparent that while the public cloud has many advantages, to benefit from them one needs to completely rewrite applications and be fully dependent on a particular cloud provider or cloud management platform. We thought there should be a better way.

We spent some time trying to figure out if what we set out to do can actually be implemented. Ravello is the result of this journey.

Our investors



The Sequoia team helps a small number of daring founders build legendary companies. We spur them to push the boundaries of what’s possible. In partnering with Sequoia, companies benefit from our unmatched community and the lessons we’ve learned over 40 years working with Steve Jobs, Larry Ellison, John Morgridge, Jerry Yang, Elon Musk, Larry Page, Jan Koum, Brian Chesky, Drew Houston, Adi Tatarko and Jack Dorsey, among many others. In aggregate, Sequoia-backed companies account for more than 20% of NASDAQ’s total value. We’re proud that their success also fuels great causes: since 2000 alone we have returned more than $10 billion to non-profits like the Ford Foundation, Mayo Clinic and MIT.
