Spheron Network is a decentralized cloud hosting platform that enables developers to host and deploy their decentralized applications (dApps) by utilizing various decentralized storage networks like IPFS, Arweave, and Filecoin.

Spheron focuses on providing Platform as a Service (PaaS) specially designed for startups, optimizing scalability and minimizing infrastructural costs to boost growth and profitability. The network was co-founded by Mitrasish Mukherjee and Prashant Maurya.
With the successful completion of the $7 million fundraising round in August, Spheron has entered the second phase of its roadmap to foster growth and development in the existing Web3 Infra layer.
