Komodor, an Israeli startup that offers troubleshooting for Kubernetes automation software, has raised $ 21 million in funding when it emerges from stealth.
The startup provides a platform for companies using Kubernetes, promising a more fluid resolution of problems.
Kubernetes too the popular open-source container orchestration software originally conceived and promoted by Google, but now managed by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation. In 2017, 54% of Fortune 100 companies were estimated be using the software. Although widely adopted, Kubernetes it is famous complex, and problems can be complicated to solve, according to Komodor CEO Ben Ofiri.
“Until recently R&D in companies was a big piece of code, a monolith, which meant to change it, you have to release a new version every time,” Ofiri said. “Kubernetes helps dev-ops maintain various microservices that are easier to manage, but if the system crashes you need to be an expert to solve the problem. Komodor solves the problem by constantly taking data so you can find out exactly what the problem is. reduces troubleshooting times. “
The company’s Serie A was led by Accel when the business went out of stealth alongside angel investments from GitHub CTO Jason Warner, Atlassian CTO Sri Viswanath and Synk co-founder Danny Grander. Komodor previously raised $ 4 million in initial funding from NFX Capital and Pitango Venture Capital.
Funding will go towards tripling the current number of the company’s 15 employees and developing new products.
“Kubernetes is a trend we’ve been following for a while and it’s becoming uncommon to hear about companies that haven’t used it,” Accel partner Seth Pierrepoint told Insider. “Software engineers who use the system don’t have the skills required to do detective work when things go wrong but Komodor summarizes a lot of this complexity.”
