$ 73 million for Mesosphere which surrounds itself with Microsoft and Hewlett Packard

by bold-lichterman

Mesosphere, an American company that is developing a solution to deploy applications in data centers, has just raised 73.5 million dollars (approximately 65.8 million euros) from Microsoft and Hewlett Packard Enterprise.

Other investors are also participating in this round table, including Andreessen Horowitz and Fuel Capital, two historical shareholders of the company, as well as A Capital and Triangle Peak Partners. In the end, this new operation brings to 126 million dollars the amounts collected by the company since its creation.

Founded in 2013, Mesosphere develops DCOS (Datacenter Operating System), a solution that functions as an operating system for data centers to deploy applications. The aim is to facilitate the creation and operation of software for data centers via a system interface between applications and infrastructures.

An offer that would have already interested several large groups like Netflix, Twitter or Apple who would use DCOS, details the company in a blog post. Moreover, Microsoft’s interest in this start-up is not new. Before this investment, the Redmond firm had already worked with Mesosphere for its cloud computing offer to Azure companies.
