Pachyderm Raises $2 Million To Power Big Data Processing For The Docker Era

Pachyderm Raises $2 Million To Power Big Data Processing For The Docker Era

 

Pachyderm, the startup that has built an open source platform for employing containers, such as those made in Docker, for running big data analytics and processing jobs, has raised $2 million in a new round of funding.

The funding, which is Pachyderm’s seed round, comes from a cadre of venture capital firms including Data Collective, Foundation Capital, Blumberg Capital, Susa Ventures, Crunchfund (which, for disclosure’s sake, was founded by TechCrunch founder Michael Arrington), Caffeinated Capital, Soma Capital, and Ace & Company. Also pitching in were angel investors Paul Buchheit, Jonathan Abrams, Avichal Garg, and Jay Jamison.

Pachyderm is an open source tool that lets programmers run analysis of large amounts of data without writing a line of Java or knowing a thing about how MapReduce works. This purportedly makes big data processing and analytics accessible to a much wider swath of developers than has historically been possible. Pachyderm’s tagline is that it provides “the power of MapReduce without the complexity of Hadoop.”
