Instead of an acquisition, Hortonworks announces $50 million in new financing

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:

Cloudera: $141M

  • 2009: $5M
  • 2009: $6M
  • 2010: $25M
  • 2011: $40M
  • 2012: $65M

Hortonworks: $70M

  • 2011: $20M
  • 2013: $50M

MapR: $52M

  • 2011: $20M
  • 2013: $32M

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.
