Clustrix, the leading scale-out SQL database engineered for the cloud, announced the completion of a $16.5 million round of funding by current investors Sequoia Capital, U.S. Venture Partners, ATA Ventures, and Don Listwin. This represents Clustrix’s third round of funding, bringing total capital raised to date to $46.5 million. With more than 30 customers worldwide, Clustrix will use the funding to expand distribution of its software to a variety of public and private cloud platforms.
Clustrix has delivered on a complete reinvention of the relational database,” said Chris Rust of U.S. Venture Partners. “The result is a highly differentiated platform that is ideal for the industry transition to cloud computing. The company now has the proven technology, experienced management, and customer traction to disrupt a $28 billion dollar market.”
This funding round comes on the heels of an exciting past few months for Clustrix. The company recently went live on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) with Clustrix 5.0, and it just published a breakthrough real-time analytics performance benchmark for its scale-out SQL database – demonstrating a 50x advantage compared to legacy scale-up databases on AWS.
