SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Nutanix (, the first company to offer software-defined storage wrapped in off-the-shelf x86 servers, announces that it has raised $33M Series C funding from significant current investors Lightspeed Venture Partners and Khosla Ventures, and new investors Battery Ventures and Goldman Sachs. This new round -- which brings Nutanix's total financing to over $71M since inception -- provides a large war chest to the company to expand sales, marketing, and support, and double up in R&D.

Unprecedented achievements in 2.5 years since conception. $71.5M in funding, 75% of which makes up for a future war chest. 100+ employees. Fastest growing infrastructure startup in the last decade with record growth and revenue in fiscal year ending July 2012. 150 systems shipped, including 600 servers attached with more than 3.3 PBs of spindle and Fusion-io (NYSE: FIO) storage.

Fastest R&D to 50-node clusters. Fastest to 100 paid units. Fastest to 50 reseller partners. Fastest to distribution in Europe and Japan. All in 2 years since Series A in July 2010.
