Mesosphere Raises $36M for Application Data Center OS

Startup Mesosphere today announced it has raised $36 million in a Series B round of funding, to fuel its efforts in supporting and extending the open source Apache Mesos technology platform. The B round brings the total capital raised to $48.8 million.

Apache Mesos is an open source project that enables an application to harness the power of multiple distributed servers by abstracting the physical compute, memory and storage into a larger logical unit. Mesosphere is using its new funding to build out a larger vision for Mesos that will see it transformed into a full fledged data center operating system (DCOS).
