Boston Business Journal, 1-15-14
ClearSky Data, a Waltham stealth-mode startup co-founded by veterans of EqualLogic and Netezza, has disclosed that its recent funding round totaled $12 million and came from General Catalyst Partners and Highland Capital Partners.
Co-founder Laz Vekiarides confirmed the funding in a message Wednesday. The news was first reported by Boston.com's Scott Kirsner.
ClearSky Data co-founder Ellen Rubin said in a tweet on Jan. 2 that the company has raised funding, but Vekiarides declined to provide details in a message at the time.
Update: A Jan. 16 filing with the SEC from the company put the total amount of the round at $12.35 million.
Vekiarides was formerly a senior engineering manager at EqualLogic — acquired by Dell in 2007 for $1.4 billion— and an executive director of engineering at Dell after that.
Rubin was formerly head of marketing at data warehousing firm Netezza, which went public in 2007 and was acquired by IBM for $1.7 billion in 2010. After that she was co-founder of CloudSwitch, acquired by Verizon in 2011.
