Last9 raises $11M in Series A round led by Sequoia Capital India, and Better Capital


Last9 has raised $11 million in a Series A round. The funding round was led by Sequoia Capital India, with participation from Better Capital and angel investors.

After recovering from the stealth mode, so far, the startup has raised $13 million in funding to enable software systems to scale reliably.

Last9 was founded by Nishant Modak and Piyush Verma in early 2020. Company Last9 is a software reliability platform that enables engineering and DevOps teams to measure, track, and improve software reliability.

The startup builds Search equivalents and also Google Maps for microservices. Last9 builds a “Knowledge Graph” for microservices to take an aerial view of their software architecture to visualize the most minute metric-level data.


Nishant Modak, Founder and CEO, Last9, said, “Having been software reliability engineers (SREs) for over a decade, this platform is born out of our struggles. What firefighters are to civil engineering, DevOps and site reliability engineers (SREs) are to software engineering. The world of microservices needs to have sprinklers and smoke detectors."

He added, "Last9 provides engineering teams with the control room and levers to manage their microservice environments, significantly reducing alert fatigue and MTTD.”

Harshjit Sethi, Managing Director, Sequoia India, said, "Last9's value proposition is simple and very powerful. The cloud has led to an explosion of infrastructure data, which has made an engineer’s job of understanding dependencies to pinpoint a root cause much harder. Last9's secret sauce of building a map of the company’s architecture allowing companies to do this quickly has seen strong reception from marquee customers. Nishant and Piyush are among the strongest SREs in our region, and we are excited to double down on our partnership with them and the Last9 team."
