Israeli platform for developers building cloud-native applications, Helios, has picked up $5 million in funding. The round was co-led by Entrée Capital (which backed Beanstock and Payaut) and Amiti VC. A number of angel investors also joined, including Benny Schnaider, Guy Podjarny (co-founder of Snyk), Adi Sharabani and Yair Amit (co-founders of Skycure) and Guy Fighel (GM at New Relic).

How will Helios use funds?

Helios will use the funds for the launch of a new free tier for their platform. Also, it will focus on making it easier to understand, troubleshoot, and test distributed systems during development.

“As applications and companies grow, development slows down because it’s harder and harder to understand how one small change might affect the system,” said Ran Nozik, co-founder and CTO of Helios. “A small change or bug in a microservice or API can ripple out through a distributed app; perhaps twenty microservices later the change causes an error, or data is silently lost. Devs spend more and more time troubleshooting and less time on what they want to be doing — creating new features.”

“Growing tech companies often grapple with scaling their cloud-native architecture,” said Eran Bielski, General Partner at Entrée Capital. “Companies want to focus on building a successful business, but often the day-to-day work of developers is full of friction that slows down progress. Helios’ focus on both developer velocity and productivity is exactly what the market needs, and I have little doubt that every software development company in the world will soon be using such a tool.”

Eli Cohen, co-founder and CEO of Helios, said “We built Helios to give developers the cloud-native dev platform we wish we’d had ourselves. Helios gives the right data with the right context at the right time, throughout the entire development lifecycle, streamlining activities from design and collaboration to troubleshooting and testing. The best feedback we get from our customers is that Helios makes their developers happier and helps them build better together.”

What does Helios resolve?

As companies and apps grow and become more complex, codebases and developer teams expand and these challenges become more acute. However, developers have been left behind, missing out on new tooling for a world of cloud-native apps.

To resolve this, Helios was founded by Eli Cohen and Ran Nozik in Tel Aviv. It is the first developer platform built specifically for cloud-native application development. It gives developers a full understanding of how their code interacts with the distributed app as a whole so they can build, troubleshoot and test more easily, significantly increasing development velocity.

Helios enables Dev teams to easily track how a request flows through their application and gives them the context they need to quickly resolve issues. The platform can automatically replay inputs at any point in the application flow, allowing developers to reproduce issues with ease.
