o San Mateo-Based Snowflake Computing Emerges from Stealth with $26M

San Mateo, Calif. -- Snowflake Computing, a San Mateo-based cloud data warehousing startup, said on Tuesday it has emerged from stealth mode after raising $26 million in funding from Redpoint Ventures, Sutter Hill Ventures and Wing Ventures. The company said it will use the proceeds to expand its team, accelerate product development activities and build out customer and partner ecosystems. Snowflake also said it has launched its Elastic Data Warehouse, a data warehouse built from the ground up as a cloud service. "There has been shockingly little innovation in data warehousing in a decade. That creates a huge and largely unaddressed market opportunity -- to create a data warehouse designed for the data, analytics and technology innovations of today and tomorrow," said CEO Bob Muglia. "This funding will further accelerate our product innovation and support our go-to-market strategy and investments.”

o San Mateo-Based SnapLogic Lands $20 Million in Fourth Round

San Mateo, Calif. -- SnapLogic, the San Mateo-based developer of a platform designed to connect enterprise data and apps, said on Tuesday it has raised $20 million in its fourth round of funding, led by Ignition Partners. Andreessen Horowitz, H. Barton Asset Management, Pharus Capital Management and Triangle Peak Partners also participated in the round, which increase the company's total backing to $60 million. The company said it will use the funds to grow its field sales, marketing and operations, while continuing to build its core platform. "This round of financing powers our expansion into big new territories and markets," said CEO Gaurav Dhillon.

o Berkshire Acquires Majority Stake in Access Information Management

Livermore, Calif. -- Access Information Management, a Livermore-based provider of records and information management services, said on Tuesday that Boston-based investment firm Berkshire Partners has acquired a majority stake in the company from Summit Partners. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed. Access has a presence in 31 U.S. markets, as well as a growing international presence. "This investment will strengthen our ability to expand the company's geographic reach, enhance our service offering and grow the business in support of client needs," said Rob Alston, the CEO of Access.

o San Francisco-Based RevMob Promotes Pedro Jahara to CEO

San Francisco -- RevMob, the Brazil-based developer of a mobile ad platform with U.S. headquarters in San Francisco, on Tuesday named Pedro Jahara as its new CEO.
