US-based ElasticBox which allows developers and enterprises to create, deploy and manage applications, has raised $9 million in series A funding from existing investors Nexus Venture Partners and Intel Capital. The investment was led by Nexus Venture Partners.

Prior to this, the company had raised a $3.4 million seed funding led by Sierra Ventures with participation from A16Z Seed, Nexus Venture Partners and Intel Capital in June 2013.

Elasticbox mentions it will be using this investment raised to develop a simplified modular app development process which will apparently make it easier for creating, deploying and managing business apps on any cloud infrastructure. It will also be using this investment for increasing its sales force, especially in Europe and Asia.

Creating, deploying and managing cloud apps through Boxes

Founded in 2011, ElasticBox offers a modular approach for developers to create, deploy and manage business applications on any cloud infrastructure including Amazon Web services, VMware and OpenStack among others. It encloses fully configured components of an application architecture into ‘Boxes’ which is then made available as a service. App developers can then mix and match these boxes to create applications.

Developers can either choose boxes from a library of publicly available boxes like NGINX, Python, MongoDB, Hadoop and Ruby among others or create their own boxes. Developers can also stack & reuse boxes to create multi-tier applications and collaborate with teams by sharing boxes.

ElasticBox mentions that developers can move their applications between clouds (both public and private), which essentially means developers can build apps in one cloud, test in another cloud and deploy in another cloud.

Pricing: The company currently offers a free SaaS version for individual developers with limited cloud providers (AWS, Rackspace, Google Compute) and a custom version for enterprises with additional cloud providers like HP Cloud, Open Stack and vSphere among others.

Earlier in April 2013, Platform as a service (PaaS) company Shephertz.com had raised undisclosed amount of funding from Kae Capital, Blume Ventures, and Mumbai Angels.
