10 Hot Networking Startups In 2012


Plexxi

HQ: Cambridge, Mass.

Plexxi still hasn't said much about what, exactly, it's developing, but the company is certainly well-funded: it just took in $20.1 million in a Series B funding round led by Lightspeed Venture Partners, Matrix Partners and Northbridge Venture Partners. More details should emerge from Plexxi soon; the company in early June launched the first phase of a private beta program for select customers, describing its product as an "integrated hardware/software offering that allows data center operators to build and manage a network from the perspective of the needs of the application or workloads."
