Serial entrepreneur Ariel Maislos, one of the founders of Anobit, has raised $10 million for his new start-up, Stratoscale, which he manages.
Together with Stratoscale’s CTO and co-founder, Etay Bogner, Maislos announced that the new start-up, which develops virtualization technology to improve the performance and efficiency of large data centers, raised $10 million from the American venture capital funds Battery Ventures and Bessemer Venture Partners.
Both Maislos and Bogner have invested in Stratoscale as well.
Following the investment, Scott Tobin, general partner at Battery Ventures, and Adam Fisher, partner at Bessemer Venture Partners, will join Stratoscale’s board of directors.
Stratoscale has 20 employees in Herzliya and continues to grow.
