SimpliVity Raises $25 Million for Software defined Data Center in a Box

SimpliVity, a start-up based in Westborough, MA, raised $25 million in Series B funding for its "OmniCube" Software Defined Data Center in a Box.  SimpliVity describes its OmniCube as the world’s first truly assimilated IT infrastructure platform.  


The 2U rack-mounted box delivers the functionality of more than 10 products for the virtual machine environment. This functionality encompasses enterprise computing, storage services and network functionality, inclusive of WAN optimization, Unified Global Management, Seamless Cloud Integration, Primary Storage Deduplication, Backup Deduplication, Caching, and Global Scale Out.  Multiple OmniCubes can be deployed together to form an OmniCube Global Federation, a massively scalable pool of shared resources that enables efficient data movement, extensive scalability, and enterprise-class system availability--all managed globally from a single interface.


The new funding was led by Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers (KPCB) and included existing investors Accel Partners and Charles River Ventures.  The company has raised $43 million to date. 

  • SimpliVity is headed by Mr. Doron Kempel, who previously was the Founder and CEO of Diligent Technologies, a specialist in Enterprise Data Deduplication that was acquired by IBM in April 2008. Prior to Diligent, Doron served as Vice President and General Manager at EMC.
