Stratoscale Raises $32M for Data Center OS

Stratoscale, a start-up based in Herzeliya, Israel, raised $32 million in Series B funding for its distributed data center operating system.

Stratoscale’s rack-scale architecture aims to transform standard x86 servers into a hyper-converged infrastructure for cloud services while supporting both containers and virtualization on the same platform.  Stratoscale’s true “plug and play” architecture supports OpenStack and Docker.

The funding round was led by Intel Capital, with participation by Cisco® Investments and SanDisk, as well as other investors including the original series A investors, Battery Ventures and Bessemer Venture Partners (BVP).
