Orchestrate.io, a technology startup founded in March 2013, has just announced that the company has obtained a seed investment round of $3 million. Orchestrate.io is a brand new data API designed to eliminate the need for deploying databases when building new applications or when adding new features to existing applications. In addition to developing and deploying the Orchestrate.io service for strategic partners, the seed funding will be used to expand the core development team and deploy the service across multiple cloud providers on several continents. True Ventures leads the Orchestrate.io funding which has also been joined by Frontline Ventures and Resonant Venture Partners.
One of the most fascinating, yet frustrating, aspects of anything to do with APIs is how rapidly the technology that serves as the foundation for the programmable web evolves. That dynamic volatility was in full view last week at the API Strategy and Practice conference in New York in the form of Daniel Jacobson, director of API engineering at Netflix.
