OpenStack-friendly Blue Box lands $10M to push its private cloud

Blue Box, the Seattle-based startup that in September showcased an expandable private cloud built on top of OpenStack, has brought in a $10 million series B funding round. The startup did not disclose the lead investor but said that prior investors Voyager Capital and Founders Collective as well as the Blue Box executive team pitched in. This funding round bucks this fall’s trend of how many cloud startups startups are being swallowed up by big tech companies: EMC acquired Cloudscaling earlier this week. In September, Cisco bought Metacloud and Hewlett-Packard bought Eucalyptus.
