Kubernetes Troubleshooting Firm Komodor Raises $42M

Komodor, a Kubernetes troubleshooting tool provider, has announced a $42 Million Series B funding round led by Tiger Global with participation from Felicis and existing investors Accel, NFX Capital, OldSlip Group, Pitango First, and Vine Ventures. Since emerging from stealth less than a year ago to help clients optimize Kubernetes operations, the firm has raised a total of $67 million.

“There’s a real challenge with day two operations when it comes to Kubernetes,” said Itiel Shwartz, CTO and Co-Founder of Komodor. Troubleshooting Kubernetes and resolving incidents at scale can be overwhelmingly complex. Komodor’s platform bakes in all of the necessary intelligence and expertise required to make any engineer a seasoned Kubernetes operator.”

Komodor’s automated incident resolution strategy would shorten response times, decrease mean time to resolution (MTTR), and empower development teams to fix issues quickly and autonomously.

Every day, the platform ingests millions of Kubernetes events and bakes the critical insights into the platform. Playbooks & Monitors, a new product from the firm, will warn operators to impending issues, determine their core cause, and give straightforward repair instructions.

Fast-Growing Company

“We’re scaling incredibly fast, directly alongside the massive adoption of Kubernetes,” said Ben Ofiri, CEO and Co-Founder of Komodor. “Since the Series A, we’ve tripled the size of our team, and we plan to double again before the end of the year. We have talented engineers researching all of the ways things go sideways in Kubernetes, and we package this knowledge into automated playbooks for the benefit of our customers.”

Komodor’s company growth highlights would include:

  • Accel, Felicis Ventures, NFX Capital, OldSlip Group, Pitango First, and Tiger Global contributed a total of $67 million in investment.
  • Jason Warner, CTO of GitHub; Mike Tria, Head of Platform at Atlassian; Danny Grander, Co-Founder of Snyk; Tomer Levy, CEO of Logz.io, and others are among the industry’s top angel investors.
  • Based on the research ‘Cool Vendors in Monitoring and Observability – Modernize Legacy, Prepare for Tomorrow’ published on October 11, 2021, we were named a Cool Vendor.
  • In the previous nine months, the team has grown by about 50 percent, with aspirations to reach 100 by the end of the year.

“Komodor is loved by teams adopting Kubernetes because it makes every engineer a confident technical leader and operator,” said John Curtius, Partner at Tiger Global. “We are thrilled to be backing Ben and the Komodor team and believe Komodor is a special company.”
