Tachyon Nexus, Inc., the Berkeley, CA, USA-based company behind the memory-centric distributed storage system, raised $7.5m in Series A funding.
Andreessen Horovitz made the investment.
Developed at the UC Berkeley by Haoyuan Li, Tachyon is a memory-centric, fault-tolerant, distributed storage system, which enables reliable data sharing at memory-speed across a datacenter. It is open source under the Apache license, and the company aims to maintain this model.
To date, the system is developed by more than 80 contributors from over 30 organizations and deplyed at more than 50 companies. Tachyon Nexus is now collaborating closely with the community to continue to grow the project.
