Itai Lahan, CEO of Cloudinary, explained to Datamation that his company is aiming to make it easier to help websites and online services to store and manage images in the cloud. Lahan noted that many websites have different needs for images including tagging and moderation as well as manipulation.
In terms of direct customers, Lahan said Cloudinary already has over 20,000 registered customers in the one and half years since the company was officially launched. From a funding perspective, Lahan has not taken any venture financing and the company is completely bootstrapped. Currently he said that Cloudinary is managing over 100 million images in its cloud.
