Pixeom, Inc., a Silicon Valley-based software defined edge computing company, secured $15m in funding.
The round was led by Intel Capital, National Grid Partners and others.
The company intends to use the funds to continue scaling operations and expand its reach.
Founded in 2014 by CEO Sam Nagar, Pixeom provides an end-to-end edge computing enterprise software platform, which recreates cloud functionality on-premise. Pixeom delivers all the power of the cloud with the speed of on-premise edge computing, running a suite of recreated edge-compatible versions of services found in public clouds like Google Cloud Platform, Amazon Web Services, or Microsoft Azure, with matching APIs (e.g. machine learning, FaaS, stream processing, etc.).
The platform’s API makes it easy to deploy and manage large-scale, geographically distributed infrastructure and workloads, and offers a seamless developer experience with tools for building and debugging containerized applications that are intended to run on the edge.
The system is used by some of the biggest technology companies in the world, such as Intel and Google, as well as energy, manufacturing and telecom clients such as SK Telecom, Vodafone, to manage a high quantity of sensitive data processing and workload information.
