It’s great that we humans are outright committed to a progressive way of life, but how we approach the said progression also remains a hugely important factor. You see, to make a meaningful step forward, we must derive maximum value from our every step, therefore we are always structuring our pursuits in an inventive manner. While sometimes we do fail, there have also been enough instances where we found that added value in spades. One such instance talked to a generational idea of technology. When the discussion is about producing a new dynamic altogether, there is literally nothing out there that can give technology a run for its money. This is largely the case because of how efficiently the creation has managed to capture different landscapes. Today, that initial takeover is turning into a full-blown revolution, and it’s all for a good reason. As the world gets more and more informed regarding technological principles, we are slowly witnessing the emergence of fresher growth avenues. One such avenue was taken and capitalized upon by an enterprise software company, Cockroach Labs.
Cockroach Labs has raised $278 million in a recently-concluded Series F funding round, which doubled the company’s valuation to a whopping $5 billion. As per certain reports, the round was led by Greenoaks Capital. Apart from it, new investors included names like Coatue, FirstMark, and Redpoint, among others. The funding round also saw many existing investors throwing their hat in the ring. Some of these old investors were Index Ventures, Altimeter Capital, Tiger Global Management, Lone Pine Capital, Bill Gurley’s Benchmark Capital, and Alphabet’s venture capital arm, GV. With the latest funding, Cockroach Labs has now raised over $633 million to this date.
The company’s unique cloud-native and open sourced environment-based approach to rewriting databases has held the market intrigue for a while now. By enabling companies in the context of creating a scalable solution, Cockroach Labs has established itself as a proper leader. To understand the company’s position within the cloud industry’s hierarchy, we just have to look at its esteemed clientele that includes eBay, Comcast, Nubank, and many more big names.
“This latest round of funding is a reflection of our customers’ rapid advances in production deployments, supporting the growth of our business as we lead the shift of transactional data to the cloud. It allows us to accelerate our investment in R&D and continue the innovation necessary to fulfill our vision.” said Spencer Kimball, Cockroach Labs co-founder and CEO
