Ignition Partners has led a $15 million venture capital round in BlueData, a stealthy Mountain View, California startup that’s developing private cloud technologies for businesses. Other investors in the round included Atlantic Bridge Ventures, Intel Capital, Amplify Partners and Data Collective.
BlueData was founded last year by former VMware employees Kumar Sreekanti and Tom Phelan. The company is not releasing information about its products, which are being privately tested.
As a result of the round, Ignition’s Nick Sturiale has joined the company’s board. In a release, Sturiale said that he believes the company has the “potential to make a big difference in the Big Data world.”
