LA’s Replicated looks to increase R&D and hiring for its operations management software after raising $25 million

Published

on

The Los Angeles-based operations and security management software service, Replicated has raised $25 million to ramp up its staffing and scale its sales and marketing efforts.

The funding, which was led by Two Sigma Ventures and included existing investors like Plexo Capital, Amplify, and BoldStart values the company at over $100 million.

Replicated began as a developer of software security and management services for Docker containerized development tools, but as the market shifted to Kubernetes, the company shifted to service those applications.

Last year, the company unveiled its tools for managing Kubernetes deployments and immediately saw sales increase.

“That new offering changed the direction of the company and added velocity and customers and the market responded so well to it,” said Replicated chief executive, Grant Miller. “Once we started building on that success.. We brought on UIPath, Puppet, who created the software automation stuff, TripWire, and then these cool emerging software companies like FlatFile and Fishtown Analytics.”

Replicated now counts 85 customers who pay for access to the platform and for every on-premise deployment that customers develop through the platform. “If you are a company like Puppet, you have hundreds of on-premise customers.”

The company has already been staffing up with key c-suite hires including a chief product officer, a chief revenue officer and vice presidents of marketing and sales. Some of the money will support Replicated’s continued hiring push, while another chunk will go into product development.

“We’re automating as much of the manual software processes that require IT admins to put their hands on keyboards to adjust and optimize things,” said Miller. “With Replicated, half of the services are for tooling for the software vendor to manage release and licensing and the other half is for the IT admin. It’s about how they automate the integration of the applications.” 

The company, which currently has 28 employees expects to grow to 75 staff members by the end of 2021, Miller said.

“The on-prem software market is four times larger than the SaaS market,” Miller said in a statement. “Replicated lets software vendors unlock the opportunity of the on-prem software category with lower engineering overhead and faster time to market. This is a market change made possible by the convergence of cloud native computing and Kubernetes.”

Apple will replace AirPods Pro for free with faulty noise cancellation, static or crackling

Published

on

Today, exactly one year after Apple first launched the AirPods Pro — and thus the same day the very first AirPods Pro owners will see their one-year warranties expire — Apple has launched a repair program that offers free repairs or replacements for another whole year if your AirPods Pro experience issues with noise cancellation or static.

Specifically, Apple will fix:

Crackling or static sounds that increase in loud environments, with exercise or while talking on the phone

Active Noise Cancellation not working as expected, such as a loss of bass sound, or an increase in background sounds, such as street or airplane noise

Apple says only a “small percentage of AirPods Pro” are affected by the issues, but it apparently wasn’t just an early batch — Apple says affected units were manufactured “before October 2020,” meaning every AirPods Pro ever made might be eligible. That’s quite a recall if so. Apple says it will repair faulty AirPods Pro for two years after you first buy them.

We’ve heard complaints about degraded noise cancellation before, and at least one Verge editor has replaced their AirPods Pro under warranty. It’s nice to hear that Apple isn’t just cutting buyers off as soon as that warranty expires.
