AtomicJar secures $25M Series A, releases Testcontainers Cloud public beta.
AtomicJar, a commercial sponsor of the open source Testcontainers library, recently secured $25 million in a Series A round of funding. This investment will be used to scale AtomicJar’s development team and go to market efforts. Testcontainers is a software library that helps developers execute integration testing for containers and microservices-based applications. To make this testing process easier, AtomicJar has released Testcontainers Cloud as a public beta.
Testcontainers Cloud is a managed service that developers can use to scale testing operations. It enables developers to do integration testing at the earliest stages of development in an iterative process, allowing them to get immediate feedback on whether their changes are correct or not. Testcontainers Cloud also helps developers offload and scale testing by providing an edge network of cloud compute resources.
The goal of AtomicJar is to make developers more confident in the software they create. To achieve this, they are likely to expand their offering beyond just Testcontainers with other tools that help improve the application testing experience. This will be possible with the help of the $25 million Series A funding round.
AtomicJar is a great example of how open source projects can be monetized. The company has leveraged the popularity of Testcontainers to create a commercial offering that solves a problem that many developers face. The Testcontainers Cloud public beta is a great first step towards helping developers with their testing needs, and the company will likely continue to expand their offering in the future.
