Golioth, a San Francisco, CA-based cloud platform for IoT, raised $2.5M in seed funding.
The round was led by Zetta Venture Partners with participation from Chris Aniszczyk (CTO of CNCF), Sam Ramji (CSO of Datastax), Shiva Rajaraman (Former CTO WeWork,) and Stephen Blum (CTO of PubNub.)
The company intends to use the funds for the expansion of its developer community.
Led by Founder Jonathan Beri, former Product Manager at Nest, Google, and early product leader at Particle, and CTO Vit Prajzler, who was on the original team at IBM Research which developed the LoRaWAN® protocol and was the Founder & former CTO of Loriot, a SaaS provider of carrier-grade LoRaWAN® networks, Golioth is a platform that allows hardware developers to build end-to-end IoT-connected products using their choice of hardware and connectivity, all without the need for a team of cloud engineers. From device messaging to security, updates, analytics, and more, the system provides device services that work with every developer’s hardware and firmware requirements.
The company also announced the private beta of its first Device SDK, which is built on The Zephyr™ Project, an open source project under the Linux Foundation that offers flexible RTOS for the IoT in space-constrained devices. During the private beta, Golioth Cloud will be free for beta testers. Pricing and additional deployment options will be announced later this year.
