Tintri Inc., a Mountain View, Calif.-based producer of VM-aware storage (VAS) for virtualization and cloud environments, closed a $125m Series F funding round.
The round was led by Silver Lake Kraftwerk with participation from existing investors Insight Venture Partners, Lightspeed Ventures, Menlo Ventures and New Enterprise Associates.
The company, which has raised $260m in total, will use the funds to accelerate global adoption of VM-aware storage.
Led by Ken Klein, chairman and CEO, and Kieran Harty, Co-founder and CTO, Tintri builds smart storage that learns and adapts, enabling IT organizations to focus on virtualized applications and business services instead of managing storage infrastructure. Its application-aware storage eliminates planning and complex troubleshooting by providing VM-level visibility, control, insight and agility, with flash performance for virtualized environment and the cloud.
Tintri is used by more than 400,000 virtual machines, storing 50 petabytes of user data for enterprises and cloud service providers including Chevron, Comcast, ConocoPhillips, European Investment Bank, GE, NTT, MillerCoors, Rogers Communications, SK Telecom, Sony, Time Warner, United Healthcare and dozens of U.S. Federal Government agencies.
