David Rosenthal, founder of FoundationDB:
I am pleased to announce today that FoundationDB has raised $17 million
What does this funding mean for you? Most
important, it means that we’ll be hiring more
people to serve you better and continue to push
the product and community forward. It means more
layers, more languages, more performance, more
support, more tutorials, more meetups, and more
FoundationDB. While we’re excited to be
participating and competing in the fast-growing
NoSQL market, this year we’re also going to show
you that FoundationDB is not just another NoSQL
database. Our transactional guarantees
fundamentally put us ahead of the pack and allow
us to deliver multiple data models side-by-side
as layers. Expect some amazing new capabilities,
starting with the upcoming release of our open-
source ANSI SQL layer.
$17mil on the ACID transaction corner. Congrats guys!
✚ I see a trend here: every time a database company mentions my name, it raises money: one week after I joined DataStax they raised $45mil and now one week after Nick Lavezzo posted a Response to Alex Popescu on “The demise of eventual consistency” they’ve raised $17mil.
