VKernel Raises $7.1M B Round

Portsmouth, NH-based VKernel, which makes software that helps companies extract better performance from virtualized servers, has raised $7.06 million in Series B venture funding, according to documents filed yesterday with the Securities and Exchange Commission. New investor Longworth Venture Partners led the round, which was joined by existing investors Polaris Venture Partners and Hummer Winblad Venture Partners. Together with a $4.6 million Series A round in January 2008, that brings VKernel’s total funding to about $11.7 million. VKernel executives, who had planned an official announcement about the funding round for next week, were unavailable for comment today.
