New Relic, a San Francisco, CA-based provider of software analytics, raised $100m in funding.
The round was led by funds affiliated with BlackRock and Passport Capital, with participation from T. Rowe Price Associates and Wellington Management. They joined previous investors Allen & Company, Benchmark Capital, Dragoneer Investment Group, Insight Venture Partners, Tenaya Capital and Trinity Ventures.
The company intends to use the funds for product development and expansion of its international presence.
