Andreessen Horowitz Invests $20 Million in Distributed Computing Company Improbable

London-based Improbable has raised $20 million from Andreessen Horowitz, and general partner Chris Dixon is joining the startup’s board, it announced today. The company simplifies the distribution of computing across thousands of servers to enable large-scale simulations — for example, the expansive virtual world of a video game, or a simulation of a city’s traffic patterns. Although Improbable’s current focus is on games, CEO Herman Narula said it hopes to apply its simulation technology to fields like defense, health care and finance.
