The French startup Koyeb has completed a pre-seed round worth USD 1.6 million (EUR 1.4 million). The company focuses on data processing workflows across multiple cloud providers. It hides a lot of complexities using a serverless model.
ISAI’s Jean-David Chamboredon and Juliette Mopin are leading the way with Plug & Play Ventures, Kima Ventures, AceCap and a long list of business angels also attending, including Zachary Smith, Justin Ziegler, Alexis Lê-Quôc, Sébastien Lucas and Marc Jalabert, Amirhossein Malekzadeh, Philippe Besnard, Eric Ouisse, Dominique Vidal and Fabrice Bernhard.
Koyeb expects companies to take advantage of the best cloud-native APIs and storage services in the future. To combine these different providers, Koyeb offers the serverless glue that connects everything together.
For example, you can store videos in an object store managed by DigitalOcean, transcribe the audio from those video files in Google Cloud using Google̵
You can move and process data on a fixed schedule or according to events. For example, if there is a new file, you can trigger Koyeb with an API call. Everything is automatically scaled to handle your task. Once your workflow is completed, you will no longer be billed for the duration.
Koyeb supports many different storage providers like AWS, Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure, Wasabi, Backblaze B2 as well as object storage products from DigitalOcean, Linode, Scaleway, Vultr, etc.
The company has also worked on a feature that will allow you to deploy your own Docker container to create your custom functions. You can also delegate your role directly from GitHub.
This way, you don’t have to start up new servers and shut down later. You don’t have to manage your cloud infrastructure with Terraform and Kubernetes, as Koyeb abstracts your infrastructure for you.
