CyberTech VyperCore nets £4m in seed raise


VyperCore, a startup that claims it is delivering a new paradigm in data centre compute performance security, has scored £4m in a seed funding raise.

The funding was provided by Octopus Ventures, Foresight WAE Technology, Science Creates Ventures, British Growth Fund and Silicon Roundabout Ventures.

This will be used to open design centres in Cambridge, UK and Bristol, UK, and to develop its first generation of accelerated compute silicon. In addition, the firm said it is also hiring.

VyperCore claims its technology accelerates existing high performance general purpose compute workloads by a factor of up to 10x, without modifying the original code.  It also securely blocks out the highest risk technical cyber-attack vectors at gate-level within the processor.

VyperCore said its memory management technology moves away from the processor’s traditional view of its memory as being a single linear space.  By defining an object-based view of the memory from within the core of the processor, substantial optimisations in execution of existing code can be achieved, while blocking memory-oriented cybersecurity attack vectors such as memory leaks and buffer overflows.

VyperCore CTO and co-founder Ed Nutting said, “Moore’s Law stalled for general-purpose compute several years ago, and processor architectures stopped evolving to meet the needs of modern programming languages such as Python and C#. VyperCore releases processors to perform optimally for the current generation of languages without compromising their power, flexibility or compatibility.”

Russell Haggar – Vypercore executive chairman and co-founder – added, “VyperCore’s proprietary memory management technology can be integrated into all leading processor architectures.  Its ability to accelerate existing complex workloads in the data centre delivers huge cost and energy savings in the data centre, without any rewriting of existing code bases.

“We’re delighted to be working with the UK’s leading hardtech investors to deliver breakthrough cost/performance benchmarks using VyperCore’s paradigm-setting processor technology.”
