A data center startup named Rohati Systems Inc. has raised around $11 million in Series B funding from Matrix Partners and Foundation Capital, according to PE Week (via VentureBeat). The company describes itself as “an early-stage start-up operating in stealth mode,” and its web site doesn’t offer much in the way of additional information:

The Rohati team has extensive data center experience and has delivered multiple highly-successful products. Today, the enterprise data center is at an inflection point, with a variety of promising infrastructure technologies in networking, computers and applications being targeted for building next generation data centers. We have identified emerging pain-points in enterprise infrastructure and are developing an innovative, next-generation data center platform to address these pain-points.

Various news accounts place its headquarters in San Jose, Menlo Park or Sunnyvale, but a brief SEC filing lists its headquarters address as 1917 O’Toole Way in San Jose. The San Jose Mercury News reported last month that Rohati has leased 13,600 square feet of R&D space in Sunnyvale. The company is actively advertising for software engineers on major job boards. Rohati is a Sanskrit word which means “to grow, to rise, to ascend,” according to the company.
