Clustrix Collects $12M

San Francisco-based Clustrix said today that it has closed a $12 million Series B financing round, joined by existing investors U.S. Venture Partners, Sequoia Capital, and ATA Ventures. The company makes database appliances that are equally capable of handling SQL, MySQL, and “NoSQL” databases. It was founded by Isilon Systems founder Paul Mikesell and has now collected $30 million all told. “We have been impressed with the strong momentum that the company has built not only during its product development, but especially since its official launch in May of this year,” Sequoia partner Greg McAdoo said in a statement. “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 $2.25 billion valuation is no surprise to us.”
