It has today announced a Series A funding of $1.5 million from Sequoia Capital. The company also announced full support for Amazon Web Services’ (AWS) Virtual Private Cloud (VPC).

The company’s new support for AWS' Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) allows users to take advantage of advanced AWS features. VPCs bring additional security to applications along with a new layer of complexity that is especially hard to handle without a visual representation of its configuration. Users can simply drag and drop subnets, route tables, elastic network interfaces, and more to a canvas and provision that to a real running environment with a single click.
With the new funding, MadeiraCloud will continue to enhance its Visual Cloud Management Platform by expanding the development team and establishing a sales and marketing office in San Francisco. In addition, Madeira will expand to provide more comprehensive support for mobile and tablet users.
