StreamNative, the unified messaging and streaming platform founded by the original developers of Apache Pulsar, has raised $23 million in its Series-A round led by Prosperity7 Ventures, the diversified growth fund of Aramco Ventures, and followed by Sequoia Capital. The funding will enable StreamNative to advance the state-of-the-art in streaming, stream storage and messaging technologies.
The investment in StreamNative underscores the market shift from legacy messaging technologies to real-time data and streaming on Kubernetes. StreamNative provides an enterprise-ready, turnkey solution to help organizations make the transition to event-driven architectures.
StreamNative will also be integrating Data Lakehouse technologies such as Databrick’s Delta Lake and Apache Hudi to allow batch access to data stored in Pulsar. This will enable near real-time access to data with industry standard batch data processing tools like Spark, AWS Redshift, Presto/Trino. StreamNative is also working to build connectors for Apache Flink and Apache Spark to bring next-generation capabilities with unified batch and stream connectors.
The funding will also help StreamNative triple its global staff across all departments to accelerate product development, ecosystem expansion, and customer acquisition.
