TEL AVIV, Israel, May 12, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --

 Advisory board of International industry leaders; Paul Otellini former CEO of Intel and Google board member, Atiq Raza former President and COO of AMD, Irwin Federman General Partner USVP, Eyal Waldman  CEO of Mellanox and Yonel Cohen former CEO of Migdal

The three founding partners in Eucalyptus Growth Capital will be Dadi Perlmutter, Rami Hadar and Eldad Tamir. Eucalyptus will focus on investing and helping late stage Israeli companies grow their business, penetrate international markets and achieve successful IPO's as part of their growth while creating revenues in the $100Ms. Investment focus will be on companies with experienced management teams that have developed disruptive technologies and can become world leaders in the new Digital Revolution. The founding partners plan on taking proactive board seats, leveraging their personal experience to help the companies grow and maximize shareholder value. An important part of Eucalyptus strategy is the assembly of an advisory board with world class industry leaders to help portfolio companies scale and penetrate international markets.

Dadi Perlmutter served as an executive vice president and general manager of the Intel Architecture Group (IAG), and Chief Product Officer of Intel Corporation. During this period (2009-2013), he was responsible for the business and development of Intel's platform solutions for all computing and communication segments covering data centers, desktops, laptops, handhelds, embedded devices and wireless communication that generated sales growth from $34B to $52B and made acquisitions that totaled $2.4B. Prior to this role for 29 years, Dadi held various management and technology positions at Intel and was directly responsible for developing several of Intel's major products, businesses and technologies that impacted its business and transformed industries.

Rami Hadar is the former CEO of Allot [NASDAQ:ALLT]. During his 8 years in Allot, Rami grew the company's sales to over $100M, made three acquisitions and led its public offering in NASDAQ. In 2012 the company reached over $900M valuation. Before Allot, Rami was the CEO of two other Israeli companies with successful exits; CTP which was acquired by DSPC [NASDAQ:DSPC] and Native Networks acquired by Alcatel [NASDAQ:ALU]. Rami was also a cofounder and board member at Combox acquired by Terayon [NASDAQ:TERN].

Eldad Tamir is the Founder & CEO of the Tamir Fishman Group (http://www.TamirFishman.com ), which today manages over 16 Bill NIS in different asset classes, and one of Israel's leading economic public figures. Eldad has over 25 years of experience in investments, investment banking and venture capital. Eldad was the sole founder and  partner at all TF VC funds that have created some of Israel's greatest companies and exits, including companies such as Chromatis, Allot, Modem Art, Copergate, Radware and many others. Prior to that, Eldad was the EVP of the Evergreen Group & Venture Funds, executive in Clal Holdings and as an analyst at one of Israel's first ever venture funds.  

"There is a large funnel of Israeli companies with sales over $10M that can grow to be billion dollar companies in sales and multi $B in value. But they need appropriate funding, long term strategy and experienced guidance in order to achieve their full potential, rather than sell out at an early stage," said Dadi Perlmutter Managing Partner at Eucalyptus. "We plan to work with the right teams and companies and help them grow. Our mission is to maximize investors' returns and help build more very large companies like Teva and Checkpoint and others."

With the rise of Docker, Kubernetes, and other container technologies, the growth of microservices has skyrocketed among dev teams looking to innovate on a faster release cycle. This has enabled teams to finally realize their DevOps goals to ship and iterate quickly in a continuous delivery model. Why containers are growing in popularity is no surprise — they’re extremely easy to spin up or down, but come with an unforeseen issue. However, without the right foresight, DevOps and IT teams may lo...

As you know, enterprise IT conversation over the past year have often centered upon the open-source Kubernetes container orchestration system. In fact, Kubernetes has emerged as the key technology -- and even primary platform -- of cloud migrations for a wide variety of organizations. Kubernetes is critical to forward-looking enterprises that continue to push their IT infrastructures toward maximum functionality, scalability, and flexibility. As they do so, IT professionals are also embr...
Kubernetes is a new and revolutionary open-sourced system for managing containers across multiple hosts in a cluster. Ansible is a simple IT automation tool for just about any requirement for reproducible environments. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, Patrick Galbraith, a principal engineer at HPE, will discuss how to build a fully functional Kubernetes cluster on a number of virtual machines or bare-metal hosts. Also included will be a brief demonstration of running a Galer...
DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
Cloud-Native thinking and Serverless Computing are now the norm in financial services, manufacturing, telco, healthcare, transportation, energy, media, entertainment, retail and other consumer industries, as well as the public sector. The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in enterprise IT. Now as never before, development teams must communicate and collaborate in a dynamic, 24/7/365 environment. There is no time to wait for long development cycles that pro...
Docker is sweeping across startups and enterprises alike, changing the way we build and ship applications. It's the most prominent and widely known software container platform, and it's particularly useful for eliminating common challenges when collaborating on code (like the "it works on my machine" phenomenon that most devs know all too well). With Docker, you can run and manage apps side-by-side - in isolated containers - resulting in better compute density. It's something that many developer...
Technology has changed tremendously in the last 20 years. From onion architectures to APIs to microservices to cloud and containers, the technology artifacts shipped by teams has changed. And that's not all - roles have changed too. Functional silos have been replaced by cross-functional teams, the skill sets people need to have has been redefined and the tools and approaches for how software is developed and delivered has transformed. When we move from highly defined rigid roles and systems to ...
In a recent survey, Sumo Logic surveyed 1,500 customers who employ cloud services such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). According to the survey, a quarter of the respondents have already deployed Docker containers and nearly as many (23 percent) are employing the AWS Lambda serverless computing framework. It's clear: serverless is here to stay. The adoption does come with some needed changes, within both application development and operations. Th...

If you are part of the cloud development community, you certainly know about “serverless computing,” almost a misnomer. Because it implies there are no servers which is untrue. However the servers are hidden from the developers. This model eliminates operational complexity and increases developer productivity. We came from monolithic computing to client-server to services to microservices to the serverless model. In other words, our systems have slowly “dissolved” from monolithic to function-...
