Architect.io provides an architecture-as-code framework and cloud platform that promises to automate different DevOps tools and practices.
The Boston-based startup has a platform with capabilities around container delivery, external dependency resolution and injection, recursive provisioning and other actions, according to Architect. The platform can automatically generate strict network policies with each deployment for network security.
In February, Architect raised a $5 million seed round, according to the startup. Next Coast Ventures led the round, which included Abstraction Capital, Spike Ventures and angel investors Jean Sini, JJ Fliegelman, Chris Nguyen, and Marc Chenn. Previous investors NextGen Venture Partners and Comcast Ventures also participated.
Architect is using the money for developer relations, go-to-market functions and engineering efforts, according to the company.
