$9.25M for Datameer

San Mateo, CA-based Datameer, which offers data analytics and business intelligence software for companies using the open source Hadoop distributed computing framework, said today it has raised $9.25 million in a Series B financing round led by new investor Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers. Existing investor Redpoint Ventures also chipped in. “We are impressed with Datameer and the innovation they have demonstrated in a very short period of time,” said Kleiner Perkins partner Ellen Pao, who has joined Datameer’s board, in a statement. “Datameer’s ability to open up the power of Hadoop to business users is key to this next wave of business intelligence known as big data analytics.”
