Mirantis just raised a $100 million Series B round, one of the largest Series B ever, and by far the largest in OpenStack. Backed by Insight Venture Partners, August Capital, Sapphire Ventures, Intel Capital, Ericsson, Dell and Red Hat, Mirantis emerged as the strongest pure play OpenStack company. So what worked and what didn't for both the investors and Mirantis? What's the right scenario to consider corporate investment vs traditional VC? Does the company regret taking money from it's #1 competitor - Red Hat? Hear answers to all of these questions in a fireside chat between Heidi Bretz and Adrian Ionel, Mirantis CEO, who was on the forefront of Mirantis' fundraising process.
