Diagrid, a Seattle, WA-based firm that focuses on application developers by building APIs and removing the hard distributed systems, raised $24.2 million in total funding. The sum consists of a $20 million Series A led by Norwest Venture Partners and a $4.2 million seed round led by Amplify Partners.
The capital raised by Diagrid will expand the company's product offerings. In addition to improving Diagrid Conductor, the business is expanding its product line with cloud runtime APIs to enable developers to run their code on systems other than Kubernetes.
A portion of the funding will also help grow the Diagrid team across engineering, sales, customer support, incident management, and developer advocacy.
Diagrid provides Diagrid Conductor, a fully managed service to help companies accelerate Dapr development, improve reliability and reduce infrastructure costs when building distributed applications on Kubernetes.
“We at Diagrid have produced a SaaS service called Diagrid Conductor that enables you to operate and manage Dapr on Kubernetes,” Mark Fussell, Diagrid co-founder and CEO said. “It’s a SaaS service that we host that you can point at your Kubernetes clusters that manages the data lifecycle and deployment inside Kubernetes.”
Diagrid Conductor deploys and upgrades Dapr and provides developers with insights into their applications’ health and behavior. It also manages Dapr on multiple Kubernetes clusters.
