PernixData: Do You See What I C…Series C That is!
Storage acceleration startup PernixData has announced they have acquired a Series C funding of 35 Million dollars to continue to innovate their popular PernixData FVP product. Along with the funding announcement they opened the doors on their customer growth stats from their fiscal year end, and the results are looking very positive.
200 Customers – Already Growing Horizontally and Vertically
From the graphs and data they illustrate in the press release to bring forward this announcement, you can see that the customer base has increased up to approximately 200, and the existing customers are already coming back for more FVP.
The fact that customers are increasing adoption as well as new customers coming on board is a testament to the work being done by CEO Poojan Kumar, CTO Satyam Vaghani and the entire PernixData team.
Advisory Role Added to Board
Along with the funding announcement and customer reveal, there was also a new advisory position added to the Board of Directors. Mark Siegel, Managing Director at Menlo Ventures will take the new board seat, and with a powerful history in the industry, it will be interesting to see the next year ahead for PernixData as they continue to build on their fantastic growth.
