Mesosphere announced it has raised $36 million in a Series B round of funding, to fuel its efforts in supporting and extending the open source Apache Mesos technology platform. The B round brings the total capital raised to $48.8 million.
Apache Mesos is an open source project that enables an application to harness the power of multiple distributed servers by abstracting the physical compute, memory and storage into a larger logical unit. Mesosphere is using its new funding to build out a larger vision for Mesos that will see it transformed into a full fledged data center operating system (DCOS).
Matthew Trifiro, SVP at Mesosphere, told Enterprise Apps Today that the Mesosphere DCOS will be commercially available early next year. The plan is for Mesosphere to have both enterprise (paid) and community (free) editions.
“It is built around open source tools, but has a lot of secret sauce,” Trifiro said.
