Summary (IA Generated)

Temporal, a Seattle-based startup that is building an open-source, stateful microservices orchestration platform, today announced that it has raised an $18.

Founded by Maxim Fateev (CEO) and Samar Abbas (CTO), who created the open-source Cadence orchestration engine during their time at Uber, Temporal aims to make it easier for developers and operators to run microservices in production.

Those servers could go down at any time, so engineers often spend a lot of time building custom reliability code to make calls to these services.

As Fateev argues, that’s table stakes and doesn’t help these developers create something that builds real business value.

“This means developers spend far more time writing differentiated code for their business and end up with a more reliable application than they could have built themselves,” said Fateev.

The company also doesn’t have any plans to create a no-code/low-code workflow builder, Fateev tells me.

However, since it is open-source, quite a few Temporal users build their own solutions on top of it.

The company itself plans to offer a cloud-based Temporal-as-a-Service offering soon.

“After spending a lot of time thinking it over, we decided a hosted offering was best for the open-source community and long term growth of the business,” he said.

Unsurprisingly, the company plans to use the new funding to improve its existing tool and build out this cloud service, with plans to launch it into general availability next year.

At the same time, the team plans to say true to its open-source roots and host events and provide more resources to its community.
