Nirvanix Adds Strategic Investor

SAN DIEGO -- Nirvanix, the premier Cloud Storage” platform provider, today announced that it has received funding from European Founders Fund, a top tier German venture capital firm with an enviable record of success in launching Internet ventures and a strong network of business relationships throughout the continent.

Nirvanix plans to use the investment money to fund its European expansion, leveraging its innovative Storage Delivery Network (SDN) platform. The market expertise and customer contacts of the European Founders partners are expected to accelerate Nirvanix’s visibility and business development in the European market. In January, Nirvanix announced the opening of an additional storage node in Europe, increasing its network footprint and enabling the intelligent storage and movement of files, guaranteeing the best performance and end user experience on a global scale. These new storage nodes have accelerated the Nirvanix performance advantage to the point where the SDN customers in Europe will enjoy 400% faster download speeds for large files on average over competing services, as measured by Webmetrics.

“This strategic investment from EFF allows us to capitalize on the tremendous market opportunity for cloud storage, particularly for digital media and online archive/backup storage, and accelerate our strong growth in Europe where today approximately 50 percent of our customers reside,” said Patrick Harr, CEO at Nirvanix. “Just as important as the financial impact is EFF’s strong network in our media rich target market coupled with their tremendous entrepreneurial track record and investments in well known Internet companies. The Samwer brothers have invested in companies such as FaceBook, LinkedIn, and the leading social, media and auction networks in Europe, which are a perfect combination in establishing Nirvanix as the de-facto cloud storage platform in Europe.”
