Neurelo Radically Eases Developer Pains with the Cloud Data API Platform

Neurelo, Inc., the Cloud Data API innovator, is emerging from stealth to debut its data access platform designed to solve the layer of issues that exist between the developer-built software and its underlying database. Backed by $5 million in seed funding—led by Foundation Capital with participation from Cortical Ventures, Secure Octane Investments, and Aviso Ventures—Neurelo’s Cloud Data API Platform empowers developers to easily build modern cloud apps while overcoming their hardest data challenges, according to the company.

The Cloud Data API Platform aims to refine the layers between a developer’s software and their database, offering auto-generated, purpose-built REST and GraphQL APIs, AI-generated custom-query endpoints, deep query observability, and Schema as Code. Each of these functionalities are made by developers, for developers, acknowledging the various complexities associated with app development.

“We want developers to absolutely realize that…everything we build means one less thing for them to do—one less tool for them to use,” explained Chirag Shah, CEO and co-founder of Neurelo. “Every single developer we have on the team who's building this product has their [own] opinion…they've all lived through this problem.”

Tackling these persistent developer challenges, Neurelo’s auto-generated and custom-built REST and GraphQL APIs removes developer dependency on ORM and server-side frameworks. The developer simply brings their data model—which is based on their business logic—to the platform, which then accelerates the delivery of code and its movement to production in mere minutes. Neurelo’s APIs are specifically tailored to meet the needs of a developer’s specific application, further supported by automated API documentation and version control.

With AI-generated, custom-query endpoints, Neurelo enables developers to easily produce and fine-tune custom complex queries. These queries can be further modified with Neurelo’s optimization recommendations using natural language prompts, regardless of the database type or language. This not only alleviates the laborious task of writing hundreds of lines of code for complex queries but leverages Neurelo’s database-specific syntax and semantics training of AI models for highly effective query code generation—ranging in efficacy from 75-90%.

The Cloud Data API Platform’s query observability establishes trust between the platform and the developer, revealing exactly what happens to every API when it’s called. It also improves the developer’s overall comprehension of the read and write operations associated with their application, enabling them to identify and resolve hotspots, bottlenecks, and more.

Neurelo’s platform combines automation with schema creation, deployment, and evolution, ensuring that any app or database changes can be easily managed on behalf of the developer. Existing as a centralized, codified repository and a single source of truth, Schema as Code automates the collection and management of metadata throughout the database.

The Cloud Data API Platform provides a holistic data access layer that streamlines the entire software development cycle, allowing developers to focus more on innovation rather than the various dependencies between the software and the database. This approach is based on a future-proof mindset that ensures that whatever diverse architecture arises, Neurelo can continue to ease developer pains.

“The databases by itself are not innovating as much as we would have imagined. They're incrementally innovating…There are at least 10 different startups [that are] all pushing Postgres-as-a-Service in the market. We personally think that the database by itself—the persistent store where the data you store is going to get pushed down in the stack—is almost like a necessary commodity layer,” said Shah. “This interface layer [the Cloud Data API Platform] is going to unlock a massive amount of value.”
