TEL AVIV, Israel & SUNNYVALE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--env0, a developer of Infrastructure-as-Code (IaC) management software, today introduced the public beta of the env0 platform, the first cloud management platform built to enable self-service with complete governance and cost control in AWS, Azure and Google Cloud Platform. env0 also announced $3.3 million in initial funding co-led by Boldstart Ventures and Grove Ventures, with participation from angel investors including Guy Podjarny of Snyk.
“When it comes to the cloud, every enterprise is struggling to find the right balance between speed, governance, and cost”
“Shifting to microservices and cloud native architectures has made cloud applications much more complicated, increasing developer frustration with DevOps bottlenecks,” said Ohad Maislish, CEO and co-founder of env0. “env0 reduces inefficiency by creating an engine that simplifies IaC governance while increasing accessibility of self-service infrastructure, doing for infrastructure-as-code what GitHub does for Git.”
As companies of all sizes move into the cloud, monolithic software suites have grown into vast ecosystems of cloud native solutions and microservices. This has put an increasing strain on finite infrastructure resources and the developers responsible for provisioning them for application and operations teams. Although IaC frameworks solve some of these problems, managed cloud environments inevitably create new bottlenecks that decrease the efficiency of CI/CD pipelines. env0 overcomes these bottlenecks by shifting testing, developer, and production workloads into standalone, ephemeral environments.
“When we moved to infrastructure-as-code, it became clear that having a flexible way to orchestrate our environments was essential and using Jenkins was not enough,” said Shaked Shauli, DevOps Lead at Curv. “env0 solved several of our problems, but its greatest advantages were its automated TTL environment policies. It allowed our team to control and manage environments while driving costs down.”
env0 – pronounced env-zero - was founded in December 2018 by CEO Ohad Maislish and CTO Omry Hay, both bringing extensive experience solving complicated infrastructure challenges from companies including Ravello Systems, VMware, Proofpoint and eToro. The company will use its initial funding to accelerate the product’s general availability, and establish a Silicon Valley based headquarters. Podjarny and former VMware executive Reza Malekzadeh will join the company as advisors.
“When it comes to the cloud, every enterprise is struggling to find the right balance between speed, governance, and cost,” said Ed Sim, founder and Managing Partner at Boldstart Ventures. “env0 is the first SaaS solution that meets all of those needs by offering self-service cloud environments with centralized governance. Ohad, Omry and the rest of the env0 team are extremely well-positioned to deliver on the promise of dynamic environments and infrastructure automation, and we are thrilled to be a part of their journey.”
“We are very excited to invest in env0, a company which has the skills, vision and deep technology to allow developer teams to easily manage all their cloud environments in one self-service Infrastructure-as-Code platform while reducing costs significantly,” said Omri Green, Partner at Grove Ventures.
The public beta is free. To find out more about env0’s features, visit www.env0.com. General availability of env0 is expected in Fall 2020.
