Ably provides cloud infrastructure and APIs to empower developers to overcome these complexities and deliver rich live experiences to their users. Companies such as HubSpot choose Ably to change the way to deliver real-time messaging services globally.
With this £5.6M investment, the company will provide the new standard of real-time messaging infrastructure required for a connected future. The funding will also help to scale the team and focus on three things:
“Ably has come a long way since 2013 when myself and Paddy Byers, Ably’s CTO, were unable to find a realtime solution that provided adequate guarantees for performance without compromising on data integrity or reliability. We launched Ably in 2016 after three years of intense research and development, investing over 50,000 hours into building the foundation of Ably’s complete realtime edge messaging platform.” – Matthew O’Riordan, CEO and co-founder of Ably
