BOSTON, Sept. 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Cloud Technology Partners™, the leader in transforming businesses with cloud solutions, today announced the closing of a $2 million series A-2 round.

"Cloud computing has changed the way we think not only about technology, but business itself. It's not just about driving out costs anymore.

"Our early and significant success has enabled Cloud Technology Partners to attract highly experienced A+ professionals that are truly the cream-of-the-crop – each boasting many, many years of acquired knowledge and expertise, as well as direct hands-on experience. It's what our clients depend upon." He concluded, "We are deeply gratified with the continued vote of confidence from our world-class investors, and thrilled with the opportunity it will afford us to maintain our growth trajectory. I am particularly excited about the significant contribution to this round from employees. It shows how much we all believe in the potential of this company."
