Today, we announced that CloudQuery has raised $3.5 million in seed funding led by boldstart ventures, with participation from work-bench, Mango Capital and Haystack. We’d love to share a bit about CloudQuery, our journey, and what the future holds for our open-source project and the community.
CloudQuery is the open-source cloud asset inventory powered by SQL, enabling developers to assess, audit, and monitor the configuration of your cloud assets.
CloudQuery came into the world from our personal pain. As developers in various roles we interacted with cloud infrastructure across security, SRE, devops, development. Very often for both basic and complex tasks we couldn’t find the right abstraction layer and always had to fallback to writing the same code over and over again. Just a few examples to keep it short but concrete:
The common pattern that you are probably starting to see here:
It became clear that for every task we do 80% of the time is spent on similar busywork and only 20% of the time is spent on the actual business objectives. This is why we created CloudQuery - to eliminate all this developer toil, and create an open-source cloud asset inventory powered by standard SQL.
We are going to focus on expanding CloudQuery platform both in terms of in-depth features and breadth integrations, and, most importantly, building a vibrant community which we believe is a key to the success of the project. In terms of features, We won't spoil some of our news in the upcoming weeks so stay tuned as we have exciting stuff coming up!
As already noted CloudQuery couldn’t and can’t exist without the community which means that everyone who’s ever fixed a bug, updated docs, written a feature, opened an issue or a feature request deserves a big thank you! And of-course to our team who is working on making CloudQuery what it is every single day.
For CloudQuery to become the open-source standard with the big eco-system and roadmap that we envision, we are looking for smart people to join us. So if you are into working on open-source projects, Go, Security, and Cloud, please drop us a line at jobs [at] our domain.
