Avassa Raises €5.8 Million to Develop its Platform for Managing Massively Distributed Edge Clouds

Avassa, a pioneer in the management of distributed edge clouds, announced it has secured €5.8M in a funding round co-led by Fairpoint Capital and Industrifonden. The funds will go toward accelerating the development of its Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) for managing massively distributed edge clouds for container applications.

Avassa’s founding team has a string of successful ventures building software for automating and orchestrating distributed systems between them. The most recent company, Tail-f Systems, was acquired by Cisco Systems in 2014.

Distributed Cloud – the next generation of computing – builds on the advantages created by cloud computing while extending the range and use cases to specific and distributed locations.

Running applications across vast numbers of edge locations brings many advantages over centralized cloud environments. Done right, the edge cloud approach provides increased autonomy, resiliency, and data privacy paired with blazing fast local execution. Additionally, regulations and local requirements demand applications and data to stay within the well-defined administrative boundaries of enterprises.

Avassa’s management platform for distributed clouds enables infrastructure and operations teams to deploy, monitor, and observe container applications across massively distributed locations where the location truly matters.
