Edge management and orchestration provider Zededa has raised $26 million in Series B funding, which brings the total investment in the company to $57 million.
Both new and existing investors participated in the funding round, including Almaz Capital, Coast Range Capital, Chevron Technology Ventures, EDF North America Ventures, Energize Ventures, Juniper Networks, Porsche Ventures, Rockwell Automation, and Samsung Next.
Founded in 2016, the California-based company offers a cloud-native edge management and orchestration solution to process data at the edge of the network.
Zededa aims to bank on the recent explosion of data at the edge of the network, which is driven by the connection of more applications, devices, machines, and sensors.
Utilizing an open architecture built on the Linux-based EVE-OS, the company claims it can simplify the remote management and security of edge applications and infrastructure, at scale, providing organizations with increased visibility and control.
Zededa plans to use the new investment to accelerate research and development, attract new customers, and expand its marketing and sales teams.
“Hardware diversity on the edge is a challenge for many global companies. Zededa’s technology has the potential to unify an entire ecosystem of hardware and apps. The technology is designed to enable remote device management and application orchestration that could improve data visibility, control and security,” Chevron Technology Ventures president Jim Gable said.
