Codefresh's business is growing rapidly and the funds will be used to further accelerate growth of the company's engineering, customer success, and business operations with the aim of making agile software development and release cycles using containers radically easier and faster.
"We founded Codefresh to address a huge pain-point we had seen first-hand: the need for a development, testing and deployment platform that was built from the ground up with microservices in mind, and treats containers as first-class citizens," said Raziel Tabib, CEO and co-founder of Codefresh. "This new capital will help us take microservices architectures mainstream."
Tabib and co-founder Oleg Verhovsky, the company's CTO, have extensive experience in the software development industry and held engineering and product leadership positions with HP.
Codefresh is already being used in production by dozens of companies such as IronSource, JFrog and HPE, who are benefiting from it as their CI/CD and Docker image management platform. Codefresh seamlessly integrates with best-of-breed container technologies and toolsets, such as testing, orchestration and registries, enabling a holistic approach to container lifecycle management.
Founded in 2014, Codefresh is changing the way companies build and deliver software. It is an end-to-end container lifecycle management platform and enables enterprises and startups alike to immediately benefit from microservices and Docker-based technologies. Based in Silicon Valley and Israel, Codefresh is backed by Carmel Ventures and other world-class investors. Learn more about Codefresh at https://codefresh.io/
