Spark and Shark company Databricks raises $14M from Andreessen Horowitz

Spark and Shark getting wings:

A team of professors who has created the in-memory Spark and Shark platforms for analyzing big data has raised nearly $13.9 million to commercialize those products. The company is still in stealth mode, but it’s called Databricks and Andreessen Horowitz led the round. […] It also lists Databricks’ very impressive board of directors: Co-founder and CEO Ion Stoica (University of California, Berkeley professor and former co-founder and CEO of Conviva); Co-founder and CTO Matei Zaharia (MIT professor); Ben Horowitz (general partner at Andreessen Horowitz and former Opsware co-founder and CEO); and Scott Shenker (University of California, Berkeley professor and former Nicira co-founder and CEO).

You should have probably heard already of all these guys.
