Manifold comes out of stealth to connect developers to cloud services

Richard Harris Richard Harris in Cloud Services Tuesday, September 26, 2017

Cloud service management platform, Manifold, has emerged from stealth with $15 in a Series A funding round.

Manifold has launched from stealth with $15 million USD in Series A funding from OMERS Ventures, Boldstart Ventures, Version One Ventures, Amplify Partners and Leaders Fund. Manifold is working to redefine the developer services ecosystem with a platform that allows developers to easily find, buy, and manage their favorite services - from email to logging - without being locked into a single cloud platform. With Manifold, developers are no longer restricted by the confines of any particular cloud, allowing them to create stacks tailored specifically for their project needs.

“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.
