vFunction Emerges From Stealth with Cloud Modernization Platform for Legacy Java

vFunction is emerging from stealth, offering a platform purpose-built to automatically, efficiently, and intelligently transform complex, monolithic Java applications into microservices with a scalable, repeatable factory model.

vFunction is a cloud modernization platform that enables the enterprise to modernize legacy Java applications and realize the true benefits of the cloud: elasticity, reduced cost, and restored engineering velocity.

By combining dynamic analysis, static analysis, data science and automation, the vFunction platform is able to extract any service from a monolith and transform it into a compilable, working microservice, according to the vendor.

vFunction helps enterprises achieve:

  • Scale: vFunction enables IT teams to rapidly scale their modernization initiatives, with a repeatable self-service factory model: monoliths in, microservices out. Prior to refactoring, vFunction assesses the complexity of hundreds of legacy apps in production then prioritizes which applications to modernize first. vFunction then estimates schedules, and manages the modernization process, including the actual auto-extraction of microservices into separate compilable projects. vFunction includes a Modernization Factory Dashboard and Application Complexity Assessment feature that allow enterprises to prioritize, manage, control, measure and track enterprises’ full modernization process from start to finish.
  • Built for Cloud Native: vFunction is designed for microservice extraction, creation and deployment to Kubernetes or any cloud native platform. vFunction helps IT teams optimize workflows and improve the software architecture. vFunction also detects and eliminates code that is no longer executed, reducing dead code, security issues, risk and unnecessary maintenance.
  • Modernize Faster, Save Money: vFunction’s automated domain-driven processes accelerate manual refactoring by 10x and save $300-500K+ per app. vFunction delivers engineering and business velocity that is not possible with manual methods.

vFunction also rasised $12.2 million in seed funding. Following the pre-seed by Engineering Capital, Shasta Ventures, and Zeev Ventures led the round with participation from Engineering Capital and Khosla Ventures.

“We spent over three years perfecting the vFunction technology to ensure we were helping our customers unlock the true value of the cloud for the 80% of the workloads that aren’t yet cloud native,”  said Moti Rafalin, CEO and co-founder, vFunction. “vFunction provides developers, CTOs and system architects the opportunity to increase business and engineering velocity, by enabling and accelerating enterprises’ journey to cloud-native architecture, without the steep time commitment, high cost and significant risk associated with the modernization approaches that exist today.”
