Cluster HQ is a Saas service to make container virtualisation (eg Docker) useful for database driven services. The company is based in Bristol, UK but is global in its ambitions.
Why we invested
Luke is exactly the sort of founder we enjoy working with. He started his own web hosting company as a teenager and ran it throughout his studies at Oxford University. Because of his problems of maintaining servers remotely he decided to build automatic backup, replication and load balancing software.
We invested because Luke had built an awesome world class technical team which solved the problems for the web hosting industry. The company recently pivoted and is building ClusterHQ – the ops service which enables container services like Docker to include and automatically manage databases.
