SolidFire Raises $25 Million for SSD for Cloud Providers

SolidFire, a start-up based in Boulder Colorado, raised $25 million in second round funding for its all-solid-state (SSD) primary storage systems for cloud service providers,

SolidFire has developed a Flash based storage node and an Element Operating System to solve the unique technical and economic requirements of primary block storage in the cloud. Storage systems (clusters) are built through the combination of multiple SF3010 Storage Nodes over a 10 Gb iSCSI Ethernet grid.

NEA, Valhalla Partners, and Novak Biddle participated in the round. This brings total funding for SolidFire to $37 million.
