Cleric announced an autonomous AI site reliability engineer (SRE) teammate to free engineering teams from the burden of providing on-call support.

Cleric has secured $4.3M in Seed funding led by Zetta Venture Partners with participation from AI infrastructure angel investors including leaders at Google Cloud, Sysdig, Tecton and Neo4J.

Cleric enables engineering teams to resolve orders of magnitude and many issues in a fraction of the time. Cleric operates 24/7, autonomously navigating complex infrastructure and observability systems to identify the root cause of an issue within minutes. It integrates various data sources like code, documentation, and logs to provide a root cause and resolution suggestions with supporting evidence.

"For the first time, AI can use judgment to operate tools on our behalf. We've unlocked a new level of automation that frees up engineers to focus on higher-value work," said Shahram Anver, CEO and co-founder of Cleric.

"The way our AI agent solves problems is fundamentally different from a human. Just as AI transformed strategies in games like Chess and Go, we foresee a similar shift in engineering operations with the introduction of AI teammates," said Willem Pienaar, CTO and co-founder of Cleric.

Cleric is leveraging its funding to scale R&D efforts in its San Francisco and Singapore offices, with a focus on expanding its suite of integrations and fostering strategic partnerships.

"Shahram, Willem, and the Cleric team hold iconoclastic beliefs about how language model agents will reshape engineering tasks like incident response, observability, and infrastructure provisioning," said James Alcorn, Partner at Zetta Venture Partners. "Zetta was immediately attracted to those bold ambitions, and is thrilled to help make them a reality as Cleric's seed partner."

Cleric is in early access.
