Coiled Announces $5M Seed Funding to Meet the Needs of Modern Data Teams

SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 29, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Coiled, the trendy answer for seamlessly scaling knowledge science, machine studying, and AI in Python, at the moment introduced it has raised a $5 million Seed spherical co-led by Costanoa Ventures and IA Ventures, with different backers together with Kaggle co-founders, Anthony Goldbloom and Ben Hamner, and Techammer, spearheaded by Cloudera co-founder, Jeff Hammerbacher

Coiled boasts a formidable and respected management workforce together with CEO and Founder Matthew Rocklin, who’s finest identified for creating Dask, in addition to Hugo Bowne-Anderson and Rami Chowdhury, each of whom are long-time leaders within the open-source group.

Dask has grow to be the main Python technique to natively scale out open-source expertise, together with:

But so far, the open-source software program ecosystem didn’t present the instruments for enterprises to do Dask work in a safe, collaborative method. That is why Rocklin began Coiled–to allow current Python workflows for knowledge science and machine studying to scale in a method that works higher for enterprises. Coiled’s preliminary product will:

  • Allow knowledge scientists to distribute workloads between cloud and on-premise clusters with out having to contain devops groups.
  • Enable knowledge groups to raised share workflows.
  • Meet safety, monitoring and authentication wants of enterprise IT.

“As data science goes from prototyping to production, it’s crucial to be able to scale workloads. Dask (and Coiled) allow data scientists to scale using workloads using the libraries they know and love. That’s why I’m excited to be an investor in Coiled.

Anthony Goldbloom, CEO and Cofounder of Kaggle


“I’m excited to see the Dask community growing with Coiled building products around this essential scaling technology. I was so proud to be associated with the creation of Dask at Anaconda that arose from our broad efforts to scale the PyData community. At Quansight and OpenTeams, we look forward to partnering with Coiled to ensure Dask continues to grow as a trusted backbone for scaling data science and machine learning workflows.”

Travis Oliphant, Creator of SciPy, NumPy, and Numba


“The Coiled workforce are world consultants in scaling Python and are deeply conscious of the ache factors knowledge scientists face on a regular basis. It has been a pleasure

collaborating with Matt and Dask builders lately in our work on Apache Arrow, and we’re excited for what’s up subsequent for this open supply ecosystem.” 

Wes McKinney, creator of Pandas and Apache Arrow


“There is a huge gap between tools that data scientists love and those that are fit for the enterprise. Coiled brings these two together and will be the crucial connective tissue that enables organizations to do productive data science at scale.” 

Tony Liu, Senior Associate at Costanoa Ventures


“It’s rare to get the caliber team that founded the original open source project to lead it’s commercialization for enterprises. Matt Rocklin knows exactly what needs to be done and has the credibility with the PyData community to make Coiled a great company.” 

Greg Sands, Managing Partner at Costanoa Ventures


“When Matt originally developed Dask as an open-source project, his vision was to enable every data scientist to scale their python code. Today, it is relied on by tens of thousands of users globally. Coiled builds on this framework to provide a complete solution for individuals and enterprises alike to simply and seamlessly scale their machine learning code and data from local workstations to data centers, traditional clouds, and even GPU clusters. Coiled’s rapid ascent is impressive and we at IA are thrilled to be partnering with the team on this journey.”
