10 Coolest Virtualization Startups Of 2013


Delphix

CEO: Jedidiah Yueh

One area of the virtualization market that hasn't received much attention is databases. But Delphix, a Menlo Park, Calif.-based database virtualization startup led by former Avamar and Sun Microsystems executives, is changing that.

Delphix CEO Jed Yueh founded Avamar in 1999 and sold it to EMC in 2006 for $165 million. Delphix, which landed $25 million in Series C funding last June led by Jafco Ventures, has managed to get 50 companies in the Fortune 500 using its software, and it's also been hiring away engineers from VMware and Oracle, the San Francisco Business Times reported in May.
