Benjamin Thomas has been appointed as the new CEO of EDJX, the serverless edge computing company. EDJX also announced that they secured an additional $3M in funding, bringing their fundraising to a total of $15M. Developers can sign up for EDJX serverless to build and scale apps free of charge.
EDJX announced that it has hired a new CEO while simultaneously raising a seed round of funding. EDJX’s CEO Benjamin Thomas has assumed day-to-day leadership of the company and joined EDJX’s Board of Directors. Thomas is a serial entrepreneur and founder of two companies, which combined sold for over two hundred million dollars in enterprise value to strategic acquirers on less than $60 million in equity investment.
Additionally, EDJX closed $3M in new funding led by Intersouth Partners, bringing EDJX’s overall fundraising to date to $15M. These developments attest to the tremendous momentum EDJX continues to gain in the market, reinforcing its dedication to making a meaningful contribution to serverless edge computing.
Serverless edge computing company EDJX appoints Benjamin Thomas as the new CEO
"The Board and I are confident that Benjamin is the right person at the right time for EDJX. He is an experienced leader with a track record of success and a great understanding of what it takes to manage a young hyper-growth company and evangelize a corporate vision. We feel privileged that he has agreed to be EDJX’s CEO during this time of rapid growth and market traction for the company," said Mitch Mumma, Managing General Partner, Intersouth Partners.
EDJX brings compute, storage, and sensor hosting services close to the developer, making it easy to write, deploy and execute applications without paying for servers and maintaining infrastructure. The EDJX serverless edge computing environment allows developers to build instantly global, powerful applications closer to endpoints and users than ever before. EDJX has recently opened its platform to developers to build and scale apps free of charge on EDJX Serverless. Developers can sign up for the EDJX Platform here.
Future of IoT technology
"Serverless is the future for IoT technology because it’s nimble, cost-effective, and close to the action. Think ‘computing-as-a-service,’ where servers are used for capacity when needed. The world’s next-gen IoT applications must be able to move from server to server in near real-time, which requires a completely different architecture than current cloud tools. I am honored to join EDJX at this exciting time in the company’s growth trajectory. I look forward to leading the company and offering our amazing platform available to the market. EDJX’s multi-tenant mesh compute, storage, and sensor hosting network makes it incredibly easy for developers to deploy to the edge. As our recent round of funding attests, now is the time to bring a serverless edge to the mainstream, and EDJX is on the cusp of this shift," said Benjamin Thomas, CEO of EDJX.
