Bengaluru (Karnataka) [India], April 26 (ANI): San Francisco and Bengaluru based developer tools startup, Hasura on Thursday announced that it has raised a USD 1.6 million seed round investment from Nexus Venture Partners and GREE Ventures. The round was led by Nexus Venture Partners.

"The Hasura team has been operating some of the world's largest Kubernetes clusters and has been the first to create the necessary tooling for developers. Using Hasura's platform, developers can now create cloud-native, portable and "elastic" applications within a few minutes without knowing anything about Kubernetes in the beginning," said MD, Nexus Venture Partners, Sameer Brij Verma.

The Hasura platform gives developers an extremely high-performance data layer (GraphQL and JSON), API gateway with authentication middleware, and GitOps automation.

Hasura also provisions Kubernetes clusters on different cloud-vendors in a single command for developers and allows complete porting of a application from one cloud-vendor to another automatically.

The platform is a certified Kubernetes provider and a member of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation.

"Today, if a fullstack developer learns how to write a Dockerfile and the basics of Kubernetes they can take complete control of their stack, end to end. They can build, deploy, operate and scale their microservices application to millions of users entirely by themselves. This will completely change the dynamic everywhere applications are built, from indie projects, to startups to Fortune 500 companies and this power will disrupt how development and operations are done today," said Tanmai Gopal, CEO, Hasura.

"We were one of the earliest adopters of Docker and Kubernetes in the world and we've been running Kubernetes clusters for application developers across all the major cloud providers. Our team's DNA at its core is to create magic for developers and we're going to lead the charge in accelerating how cloud-native applications are built," Gopal added.

"Ultimately, containers and Kubernetes are just details on the road to helping teams build, iterate and maintain with maximum agility. Creating an environment for developers to collaborate, build and iterate rapidly without compromising on their ability to control lower layers of the stack is a powerful value proposition in the cloud-native landscape. Hasura lets you deploy anything from a Jupyter notebook to a chatbot to a fullstack react-graphql application by running a single command: "git push hasura master"," said Nikhil Kapur, Principal, GREE.
