We are delighted to announce a new round of funding led by new investors
Tenaya Capital and Dragoneer Investment Group, with participation from our
existing investors Benchmark Capital, Index Ventures and Yahoo!.
I guess the rumors about a possible acquisition of Hortonworks aren’t true.
✚ If you are interested to see the history of rounds of the three major Hadoop players, here’s a summary:
- 2009: $5M
- 2009: $6M
- 2010: $25M
- 2011: $40M
- 2012: $65M
Note: the data I had for the MapR raises $30mil in Series C seems to be a bit different to the data I’ve collected today.
