Pica 8 Raises $12.5 Million for its Open-vSwitch SDN

Pica 8, a start-up based in Palo Alto, California with R&D in Beijing, China, secured $12.5 million in Series B funding for its open SDN system.

Pica 8 leverages commodity bare metal switches for its Open-vSwitch (OVS) SDN solution aimed at high-end data centers. PicOS provides extensive support for traditional switching and routing protocols.  Pica8 can provide PicOS, switching hardware or both in a fully integrated package as part of an end-to-end data center SDN solution.

The new funding came from a group of investors led by VantagePoint Capital Partners, Cross Head and Pacific Venture Partners (PVP), bringing its total funding to date to over $20 million.
