ScaleArc nabs $12.3M to provide visibility into your SQL database

ScaleArc has pulled in $12.3 million for its second funding round to bolster its efforts to make SQL databases easier to manage.

The Silicon Valley-based company simplifies the way you deploy database environments. It claims its ScaleArc iDB software can lower costs by up to 50 percent for its customers, which include online gaming company Kixeye and Weather Decision Technologies.

Most valuable data is stored in SQL, but caching data is typically a manual task that required a team of engineers. ScaleArc automates this complex process to give its customers a visibility into every query, provide real-time analytics and instant troubleshooting, and more.

TechCrunch’s Alex Williams predicts that the company will likely use the infusion of capital to attack the NoSQL market. This will ensure that the company can stay ahead of its competition, which includes Citrix and Netscaler.

To further the development of its database infrastructure software, ScaleArc raised funding from Accel Partners with participation from Trinity Ventures and Nexus Ventures. This brings the company’s total investment to $18.3 million.
