Mesosphere picked up $125 million funding in a deal announced Monday to help it navigate the increasingly competitive waters of the multicloud orchestration market.
Mesosphere specializes in providing open source tools to help cloud operators orchestrate both infrastructure — the server, storage and networking resources needed to run cloud applications — as well as platform tools, such as AI and data analytics software.
Mesosphere’s flagship product is DC/OS, which the company bills as a data center operating system, orchestrating operations across multiple public and private clouds. DC/OS deploys and manages Kubernetes for containers, TensorFlow for machine learning, Apache Kafka for data transport, Cassandra for distributed data storage Apache Spark for analytics, and more — over 100 software utilities.
