Clustrix, a developer of clustered database systems for internet-scale applications, has raised $12m in a Series B funding round, bringing its total venture funding to date to $30m.
US Venture Partners, Sequoia Capital and ATA Ventures each invested an equal share in the round, which will be used to expand sales, marketing and product development.
Clustrix, which was is headed by Paul Mikesell, co-founder of data storage company Isilon, provides scalable database solutions preconfigured as appliances.
Greg McAdoo of Sequoia Capital said, “As an early Isilon investor, we have known Paul Mikesell since his days as one of the two founders of Isilon, where he was responsible for developing the company’s technology and products.
“Isilon’s technology is still more scalable than any other storage vendor today, and their current $2.25bn valuation is no surprise to us. With Clustrix, Paul and his team have brought unmatched scalability, fault-tolerance and seamless deployment to the database world,” he added.
