CEO: Prat Moghe
Cazena exited stealth in July with its big data-as-a-service offering that the Waltham, Mass.-based startup promises can move a business' big data processing to the cloud in just three clicks. Cazena's Data Lake-as-a-Service and Data Mart-as-a-Service can provision and optimize cloud infrastructure and big data technologies like Hadoop, MPP SQL and Spark.
CEO Prat Moghe, along with board members Jit Saxena and Jim Baum, were among the founders of Netezza, a pioneering developer of data warehouse appliances that was acquired by IBM in 2010 for $1.7 billion.
The company also announced $20 million in Series B funding in July.
