CloudMine will use the proceeds to enrich its product and expand marketing and sales functions.

Since its founding in 2011, CloudMine’s platform has become a key element of mobile development strategy and architecture for enterprise IT departments of all sizes.

“CloudMine is revolutionizing the way mobile apps are developed in the enterprise,” said Philip Moyer, Managing Director, Technology at Safeguard. “Most enterprises are dealing with three infrastructures—their legacy environment, their cloud, and their infrastructure needed to build mobile applications. CloudMine unifies these infrastructures making it easy for an enterprise to create scalable enterprise-grade mobile applications that are first-class citizens of their infrastructure and governance model. Brendan and his executives have assembled a strong entrepreneurial team who have demonstrated tremendous traction in just a few short years. We are excited to be a part of CloudMine’s growth story.” Mr. Moyer, along with David Luk, Principal, Technology at Safeguard, will join CloudMine’s board of directors.

It operates, for instance, with a single camshaft, and a single pair of cam gears mesheddirect. There is no chain. This motor is two small, simple fours mergedinto one at the base. Thats why you get that wonderfully smoothperformance of the multi-cylinder motorcoupled with the strict economy of the four.

The greater portion of the area thus bounded be-came at last sheeted by a web composed of the innumerable lines emittedby the little spinners, so that the whole presented a quite good miniatureof the canvas tents of a traveling circus company. For long periods the little creatures would hang (|uite still, separatedfrom each other by distances varying from three-fourths of an inch toone, two, and three inches.
