Scaling is a challenge for most businesses. Scaling sustainably takes strategy, support, skillful execution, and — you guessed it — funding. Following its $23M Series D round of funding, global data stream network (DSN) PubNub has the funding it needs to achieve its next stage of growth. PubNub is planning international expansion that includes a strong focus on emerging markets.
Distillery has been fortunate to partner with PubNub on a range of products over the past several years. We couldn’t be happier for the deserving PubNub team as they celebrate this latest achievement.
Demand only continues to grow for the kind of real-time notifications, messaging, updates, collaboration, and IoT device control supported by PubNub’s DSN. Tech-savvy investors have taken due notice. In the Series D round, Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) joined prior investors Cisco Investments, Bosch, Ericsson, Sapphire Ventures (backed by SAP), Relay Ventures, and Scale Venture Partners. To date, PubNub has raised approximately $70M.
In TechCrunch’s announcement last week, HPE company Aruba COO Vishal Lall summarized it well: “PubNub’s global Data Stream Network has demonstrated extensive accomplishments powering both enterprise and consumer solutions. HPE is thrilled to be investing in PubNub’s fast-growing success, and to accelerate the commercial and industrial applications of PubNub’s real-time platform.”
The San Francisco-based infrastructure-as-as-service (IaaS) company focuses on helping businesses solve the challenges of building and scaling real-time apps. PubNub’s cloud technology provides fast, secure, reliable, and scalable infrastructure, APIs, and SDKs to support large-scale, real-time deployments. PubNub powers thousands of apps globally for companies like Adobe, eBay, Yelp, HubSpot, Atlassian, and Samsung.
Currently, Distillery is one of only six PubNub Certified Development Partners. Our ongoing partnership helps us deliver top-quality expertise and expedite development on PubNub-powered products. For example, we recently enlisted PubNub to drive the backend messaging infrastructure and new features for MedX’s real-time messaging solution.
PubNub’s robust DSN helps businesses worldwide to scale their application infrastructure. It only makes sense that they get the help they deserve to scale their own business. We’re excited to see what’s next for PubNub!
