Encore, the backend development engine for rapidly building scalable distributed systems, today announced $3 million in its seed round led by Crane Venture Partners with participation from Acequia Capital, Essence Venture Capital and Third Kind Venture Capital. Notable angel investors include Bucky Moore, partner at Kleiner Perkins, and head of product at Google DeepMind Mehdi Ghissassi, among others.
Encore is also announcing the general availability of Encore Backend Engine based on the open source Encore Go Framework.
The Encore framework, coupled with static analysis, enables Encore to deeply understand the application developers are building and unlike most tools, Encore is not a cloud hosting provider. With Encore, developers can use their own cloud account with all the major cloud providers, keeping them in control of their data. Encore’s Backend Development Engine offers the features needed for modern cloud software without the setup. Features include writing code free from boilerplate, built in CI/CD, automated provisioning of infrastructure in AWS/GCP/Azure, live reload, PR environments, distributed tracing, authentication, secrets, automatic documentation, generated frontend clients, and more.
