Temporal, maker of an open source, stateful, microservices orchestration platform has announced its first production release and Series A funding of $18.75 million. Sequoia Capital led the round and was joined by Madrona Venture Group, along with existing investors Addition Ventures and Amplify Partners which led the seed round. The funds will be used to grow the existing open source community and develop a Temporal cloud offering. This brings the total amount raised to $25.5 million.
Temporal was founded by Maxim Fateev, CEO, and Samar Abbas, CTO, who created and led the open source Cadence project at Uber. Maxim Fateev, Temporal co-founder and CEO said,”Microservice architectures enable businesses to scale their software to meet consumer demand. Unfortunately, microservice architectures introduce significant overhead for developers and reliability problems for applications. Temporal empowers developers to write and operate highly reliable applications on top of scalable microservice architectures, without sacrificing productivity.”
Temporal provides a code-first open source runtime that companies can use in multiple production scenarios to orchestrate microservices, provision resources, build data pipelines and other tasks. The company said that the code written with Temporal is executed directly, which enables developers to use the development, debugging, and testing processes they already know and love.
Bogomil Balkansky, partner at Sequoia said,”Today, developers spend too many hours writing and debugging custom code to mitigate potential failures across microservices. Temporal provides resiliency out of the box, enabling developers to build scalable applications and making it an essential component of any microservice architecture.”
Snap uses Temporal to provide visibility and reliability into long-running critical processes. Instead of spending time debugging failures, Snap engineers get instant feedback about the state of business processes. Steven Sun, Tech Lead, Staff Software Engineer, Snap said,”Temporal enables Snapchat to focus on building the business logic of a robust asynchronous API system without requiring a complex state management infrastructure. This has improved the efficiency of launching our services for the Snapchat community.”
