Proximal Data Raises $2M for Hypervisor Caching

Proximal Data, a start-up based in San Diego, raised $2 million in Series B funding for its server-side caching solutions specifically designed for virtualized environments.

Proximal Data offers adaptive I/O caching to increase virtual machine (VM) density up to three times. It plugs into hypervisors, such as VMware’s ESXi, and transparently works on all I/O without requiring agents in guest operating systems. By placing hot I/O onto a PCIe flash card or SSD, AutoCache intelligently supplies priority data traffic to VMs.

Funding came from Avalon Ventures and Divergent Ventures.  Proximal has raised $5 million to date.
