HPE Buys MapR Assets


HPE has gobbled BlueData, purveyor of the EPIC Big Data-as-a-service software that can run large-scale distributed analytics and machine learning workloads in Docker containers. The business was founded in 2012 by CEO Kumar Sreekanti and chief architect Tom Phelan, and has taken in just $39m in funding. There have been three rounds; a $4m A-round in 2013, a fast $15m B-round from an Ignition Partners-led group in later 2013 and a $20m investment led by Intel Capital in 2015, with Dell Technologies Capital participation.
