Palo Alto, Calif.-based Macrometa provides a global data network (GDN) and edge computing service for developers.
Macrometa’s GDN is a combination of a globally distributed NoSQL database, a low-latency stream data-processing engine and functions-as-a-service runtime integrated as an elastic, serverless cloud. It enables developers to build and run event-driven, data-heavy, concurrent, serverless cloud applications and APIs that run instantly across 175 global points-of-presence (PoPs).
The company says its customers — global enterprises, 5G telecom providers, web-scale SaaS and web services providers — use its network to add real-time NoSQL databases, stream analytics, instant query and search functionality to their apps and API backends. The mean roundtrip time for a user on their phone or laptop to Macrometa’s edge cloud and back is less than 50 milliseconds globally — 50 to 100 times faster than what current cloud platforms deliver, according to the company.
Macrometa announced a partnership for global data with San Francisco cloud services provider Cloudflare in April. And this month, it disclosed a $20 million Series A funding round led by Salt Lake City’s Pelion Venture Partners, with participation from existing investors DNX Ventures, Benhamou Global Ventures, Partech Partners, Fusion Fund, Sway Ventures and Shasta Ventures. It plans to use the funding to accelerate its customer acquisition and feature development, and integrate with content delivery network, cloud and telecom providers.
