Wercker, an Amsterdam, The Netherlands-based platform to automate development of microservices and applications, raised $4.5m in funding.
The company, which has now raised $7.5m in total funding, intends to use the funds to continue to drive developer adoption, expand into the enterprise market, and deepen its automation capabilities with more complex development pipelines.
Led by Micha Hernández van Leuffen, founder and CEO, and Andy Smith, CTO, who is the former co-founder of OpenStack, wercker provides developers with a continuous delivery platform to improve and speed up the app building and deployment processes via custom automation pipelines which uses steps that produce containers as artifacts. Once the build passes, users can continue to the deploy steps as specified in the wercker.yml.
In addition to the funding, the company open sourced its Command Line Interface (CLI) technology to further empower the developer community to develop, build and deploy containerized applications and microservices on desktop environments (The CLI runs on both OSX and Linux machines)
Wercker also has offices in San Francisco.
