Manifold comes out of stealth to connect developers to cloud services

Cloud service management platform, Manifold, has emerged from stealth with $15 in a Series A funding round.
“The modern development stack is complex. Until now, there has been no easy way for developers to discover and manage the mix of services needed to create modern applications without resorting to the one-size-fits-all offerings of the monoclouds,” said Jevon MacDonald, CEO and co-founder of Manifold. “This has stifled developer freedom and creativity, while also limiting the opportunity for innovative service providers looking to reinvent the way we build applications. Manifold has set out to change this, by providing a simple way for the best developers to connect with their favorite service providers.”
Manifold has created a seamless way to tap into the growing ecosystem of independent developer services across any cloud. The company is launching with the support of more than a dozen handpicked developer favorites including Scout, Mailgun, LogDNA and RedisGreen. With Manifold, developers can manage all of these services in a single platform, streamlining the purchasing and management process, so they can focus on building their apps.
Manifold provides a better way to find and manage the best services, leveling the discovery playing field for service providers. The Manifold platform was built for developers by developers who experienced, and were fed up with, the pain of the current developer services landscape. The funding will allow Manifold to build out its team, which already includes developers from Heroku, Salesforce, Red Hat and other developer focused companies, and to expand its roster of essential services.
Clouds are distributed technology platforms that leverage sophisticated technology innovations to provide highly scalable and resilient environments that can be remotely utilized by organizations in a multitude of powerful ways. To successfully build upon, integrate with, or even create a cloud environment requires an understanding of its common inner mechanics, architectural layers, and models, as well as an understanding of the business and economic factors that result from the adoption and real-world use of cloud-based services.
