Mesosphere raises $36m to push DCOS development

Mesosphere's data centre operating system treats all servers as one resource.

By CBR Staff Writer

Mesosphere has raised $36m in funding which it will use to push developments in its leading-edge data centre operating system (DCOS).

New investor Khosla Ventures led the round, with additional investments from Andreessen Horowitz, Fuel Capital, and SV Angel. The Mesosphere DCOS allows developers and operators to treat all servers as one resource.

"The industry needs a new type of operating system to optimise and automate the complex landscape inherent to the agile IT era," said Vinod Khosla, founder of Khosla Ventures and co-founder of Sun Microsystems.

"Mesosphere has assembled a world-class team to deliver this software foundation that makes it as easy to run massive distributed server applications as it is to run an app on your smartphone or PC."

The Mesosphere DCOS means operators, rather than having to focus on individual virtual or physical machines, can build and deploy applications and services that span entire data centres.

Mesosphere’s DCOS is built on Apache Mesos and provides developers with an application programming interface to automate the allocation of data centre resources for the use of distributed software.

The current round brings Mesosphere’s total funding to approximately $50m and the company plans to increase investment in its global growth programme.
