vFunction has emerged out of stealth with the announcement of the platform purpose-built to transform complex, monolithic Java applications into microservices with a scalable, repeatable factory model. vFunction has also announced $12.2 million in seed funding.
Following the pre-seed by Engineering Capital, Shasta Ventures and Zeev Ventures led the round with participation from Engineering Capital and Khosla Ventures.
According to the company, vFunction enables IT teams to rapidly scale their modernization initiatives, with a repeatable self-service factory model: monoliths in, microservices out. Prior to refactoring, vFunction assesses the complexity of hundreds of legacy apps in production then prioritizes which applications to modernize first.
vFunction then estimates schedules, and manages the modernization process, including the actual auto-extraction of microservices into separate compilable projects.
vFunction has also partnered with Systems Integrators to accelerate cloud native modernization projects for customers, including HCL Technologies, Tata Consulting Services, and Wipro.
Additionally, vFunction partners and integrates with cloud native platforms including Red Hat OpenShift.
The vFunction platform is currently available, is running in production at leading enterprises and is based on a per-app pricing model.
vFunction was cofounded by experienced serial entrepreneurs CEO, Moti Rafalin, CTO, Amir Rapson, and Systems Architect, Ori Saporta, following the acquisition of their previous company, WatchDox, by Blackberry in 2015.
