ScaleBase is a database software company located in Newton, Massachusetts, that works with next-gen apps to scale out relational databases by virtualizing a distributed database environment. The company serves enterprise clients, online gaming companies, digital media and social network providers.
Scalebase was founded in 2009 by Doron Levari, who currently serves as ScaleBase CTO. Ram Metser, formerly CEO of Guardium, a database security company acquired by IBM in 2009, was named as CEO in October of 2012.
To date, ScaleBase has received almost $15 million in venture capital through two rounds of funding. In 2012, the company closed a Series B round of $10.5 million from Bain Capital Ventures, Ascent Venture Partners and its original investor, Cedar Fund.
The ScaleBase Data Traffic Manager (core product, released in August of 2011) enables apps to cost-effectively scale out to an infinite number of users with no disruption to the existing application infrastructure.
