EasyStack, China's open source cloud computing market leader, announced that it has completed its Series C++ round financing, led by a strategic investment from JD.com. As part of the agreement, both parties have committed to establishing an all-encompassing partnership in key areas of technology, products and marketing to provide enterprise customers with world-class cloud services.
