[ Cockroach Labs raises $27M in Series B ]

Cockroach Labs has raised $27 million in Series B funding.

Founded in 2015, Cockroach Labs  is the company behind CockroachDB, an open source, scalable SQL database headquartered in New York City. CockroachDB is a distributed relational database that is scalable, survivable, and strongly consistent – hence the name.

In addition to the new capital, Cockroach is also officially launching its version 1.0. Cockroach will be monetizing around a paid enterprise tier. This premium version will include distributed backup and restore functionality in addition to enterprise support— things that are not optional for serious users managing large amounts of data.
