Data access infrastructure company Hasura has raised $25 million in series B funding, bringing the total raised to $36.5 million. The latest round comes just six months after the company’s $9.9 million Series A round.
The round was led by Lightspeed Venture Partners with participation from existing investors Vertex Ventures US, Nexus Venture Partners, Strive VC and SAP.iO Fund and new angel investors including Microsoft current chairman John Thomspon.
Hasura plans to use the funding to accelerate its hiring and investment in its open source and commercial product development.
Further, Hasura has added GraphQL support for MySQL and early access support for SQL Server to its existing support for PostgreSQL. The company now supports three of the most popular database technologies.
A great deal of valuable data lives inside existing MySQL and SQL Server databases, and developers want to access that data to build new applications.
By expanding its support to more database types, Hasura makes it easy for developers to access that data with a modern GraphQL-based API with inbuilt security, scalability and governance.
