Cloud9 IDE, Inc., a cloud-based integrated development environment (IDE) for web and mobile applications, raised $5.5 million in a round of funding from Accel Partners and Atlassian Software. The series A funding round provides the necessary support for Cloud 9 IDE to reach its goals in the emerging development-as-a-service (DaaS) market. Within its cloud-based development environment, Cloud 9 IDE will now offer multi-language and multi-platform support, as well as software development kits (SDKs) for both cloud and mobile.
Based in Amsterdam, Cloud 9 IDE plans to open its new U.S. headquarters in San Francisco. Using Cloud 9 IDE, developers can start projects, share code, and collaborate within the cloud. The company was previously funded through self-funding and angel investments.
