SEATTLE, WA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/29/14 -- ExtraHop, the global leader in real-time wire data analytics for IT operational intelligence, today announced that it has closed a $41 million round of Series C financing. The round was led by Technology Crossover Ventures (TCV), an investment firm with a long track record of investment in some of today's most successful technology companies including Splunk, Zillow, Expedia, and Spotify. TCV was joined in the round by existing investors Meritech Capital Partners and Madrona Venture Group, as well as private investors including Sujal Patel, the former CEO and founder of Isilon Systems. To-date, ExtraHop has raised $61.6 million in venture capital. The company will use this round to further establish the IT Operations Analytics (ITOA) category, with an emphasis on delivering significant innovations within its Wire Data Analytics platform and aggressive expansion into new geographic markets. ExtraHop also announced that Ted Coons at Technology Crossover Ventures is joining its board of directors.

"Just as Splunk's platform fundamentally changed the way businesses leverage machine data, ExtraHop has transformed wire data into a key source of visibility and intelligence for IT operations teams with its Wire Data Analytics platform," said Coons. "Led by a team with extensive expertise in virtualization, application delivery, and network technologies, ExtraHop is reshaping the way IT approaches management of its operations. The ExtraHop Wire Data Analytics platform provides CIOs, CTOs, and IT Operations teams with the insight they need to translate rich wire data into tangible business value. Serving on the board, I look forward to working with this proven and dynamic team as they continue their category leadership."

"The convergence of cloud, software-defined IT, virtualization, and mobility have driven unprecedented complexity in today's enterprise IT environments," said Dennis Callaghan, Senior Analyst at 451 Research. "IT professionals and business leaders need technologies that enable them to cut through the clutter to gain visibility into these complex IT environments. This round of funding validates the value and ROI of ExtraHop's Wire Data Analytics platform for improving IT operations, and empowers the company to maintain and extend its category leadership."

Since closing its Series B Round in 2011, ExtraHop has demonstrated strong momentum across all facets of the company. Between 2012 and 2013, the company achieved 150 percent year-over-year revenue growth. Spanning industries such as healthcare, ecommerce, financial services, and information technology, ExtraHop's customers represent some of the world's largest enterprises, including Lockheed Martin, Morgan Stanley, Concur, Purdue Pharma, and McKesson. ExtraHop has also continued to innovate at a rapid clip, launching its flagship EH8000 appliance in April 2013, followed in November 2013 by the launch of its award-winning ExtraHop for AWS cloud performance product.

"Businesses cannot survive without a fast-paced, well-informed, and innovative IT organization. ExtraHop has deep roots in the enterprise, and we've identified a significant market opportunity that will redefine IT operations as we know it today," said Jesse Rothstein, CEO, ExtraHop. "We're establishing the entirely new category of ITOA, which provides an unmatched source of truth about business and IT operations through sophisticated analysis of wire data. The investment from TCV, known for backing some of the industry's most notable and disruptive enterprise brands, further validates our mission and will significantly accelerate our pace of innovation."

A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
