bit.io, a San Francisco, CA-based fastest way to build and collaborate on Postgres databases, raised $7.5 million in a seed funding round led by Battery Ventures and GreatPoint Ventures, with participation from Neo and Combine.
Database industry leaders, including Battery Operating Partner and former MongoDB CEO Max Schireson, and GreatPoint Managing Partner and former Oracle President and COO Ray Lane, are joining the cap table with this investment.
bit.io Serverless Postgres launches publicly, the first truly serverless Postgres offering that, with a single click, can be spun up, shared with others, and edited instantly in a browser – no sign-up or provisioning required.
"Working with data is now a team sport, and that means it needs to be easier to spin up databases, easier to collaborate, and without all of the operational headaches of working with databases in production," said Adam Fletcher, co-founder, and CEO of bit.io. "This is why we're launching bit.io Serverless Postgres today. It's never been simpler to create a Postgres database, share it with others in a single click, and work in Postgres even from the comfort of your browser."
Since its private beta opened in 2021, bit.io has grown quickly, with more than 15,000 users and 30,000 Postgres databases on the platform. Developers like Ford, Visa, NHS, P&G, and Morgan Stanley use bit.io to produce OLTP workloads and build web applications, low-code/no-code backends, data analysis, and mobile applications.
