Middleware Raises $6.5M Seed Funding to Simplify Cloud Observability

Middleware, a disruptive AI-based cloud observability platform provider, raised $6.5 million in seed funding to simplify cloud observability. The capital infusion will enable the company to transform how businesses use observability stacks in the age of AI.

8VC led the round and was joined by Fin Capital, Vercel CEO and founder Guillermo Rauch and Tokyo Black. Additionally, several notable angel investors and other funds participated including Decent Capital, Begin Capital, Beat Venture and Gokul Rajaram.

The funding enables Middleware to expand its team, develop features and grow its customer base. The company also plans to build an advanced AI advisor based on generative AI to further improve the cloud observability stack.

“We continue to build out our platform and help our customers achieve greater visibility and control over their systems,” said Laduram Vishnoi, CEO and founder of Middleware. “Our AI-based approach provides better insight into applications and infrastructure, making it easy for customers to debug issues faster and minimize downtime.”

Middleware’s cloud observability platform amalgamates data from various sources and leverages machine learning algorithms to identify patterns and anomalies that indicate performance issues and other problems.

The platform also can provide recommendations for how to resolve issues and automate the resolution process.

The observability market has changed significantly in recent years with companies seeking faster and more cost-effective debugging. However, the proliferation of microservices and distributed systems has made it more difficult to understand real-time system behavior, which is critical to problem-solving. That’s why businesses are using automation that monitors distributed architecture and enables deep-dive tracking and real-time observability.

Middleware’s ultimate objective is to provide development and operations teams with effortless access to observability data throughout the entire software development lifecycle, reducing mean time to detection (MTTD) and mean time to resolution (MTTR).
