CoreOS, a San Francisco, CA-based Linux operating system for massive server deployments, raised $8m in Series A funding round.
The round was led by Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, with participation from existing investors Sequoia Capital and Fuel Capital.
The company intends to use the funds to grow the company, product development, and expand globally.
Led by Alex Polvi, founder and CEO, CoreOas has just released CoreOS Managed Linux, which will provide businesses with optional support subscriptions. It is delivered as an OS as a Service, meaning companies will receive a continuous stream of updates and patches, eliminating the need for major OS migrations every few years.
CoreOS is a new Linux OS that has been re-architected to provide the foundation of warehouse scale computing. It runs on existing hardware and on cloud providers.
