Supercharging Open Source Ops 🦸‍♀️

When Michael and I joined forces last year and talked about the opportunity for Plural, I got excited – more excited than I had in a long time. Every day, companies are realizing that they need to become software companies in order to stay competitive. Open source will continue to proliferate to accelerate companies’ development, but open source is fragmented, hard to consume and tricky to integrate. The amount of rework done by teams every day to stitch together components and inject basic tools like observability, identity management and security is insane.

That’s what we are setting out to change.

We believe Plural can bring ops teams and open source vendors closer together. By leveraging Kubernetes and a bunch of Plural magic, we can create standardized, production-ready deployments of the worlds best open source infrastructure all managed in one place – the Plural platform and marketplace.

To achieve this vision, I’m super excited to share that we have raised a $6M seed round led by SignalFire with participation from Primary Venture Partners, Susa and not to mention an incredible set of angel investors.

What’s Next for Plural ➡️

Creating the standard for deployment of open source is a big vision and one that I couldn’t be more excited about at Plural. To drive our vision we will be focused on:

  1. Creating a massive and engaged community of Plural users.
  2. Delivering more features and products that make deploying and managing complex infrastructure at scale a seamless experience
  3. Expanding our catalogue of applications to provide users with best-in-breed software across multiple categories.

Thank you’s 🙏

We are super thankful to all those coming along this journey with us. In particular I would like to say thank you to Oana at SignalFire and Brian at Primary – both are tremendous thought partners that any founder would be lucky to have in their corner. We couldn’t ask for a better group of angels, investors, advisors, community members (and friends and family!) to support, mentor and cheer us on.
