Hyper9 Apparently in Good Shape

With the recent downturn in the economy, it seems like companies on all sides are running into lots of problems. This seems to be particularly true; I’ve heard rumors—nothing confirmed, mind you—that more than one virtualization-related startup is down to a skeleton crew in the hopes they can survive the economic storm.

That does not appear to be the case with Hyper9, who recently announced two pieces of good news. First, the company has just closed an $8 million Series B round of funding. Second, they’ve announced that Mike Maples Sr. has joined the Board of Directors. Apparently this second announcement is quite significant, although I must admit the significance is mostly lost on me (I’m not really familiar with Mr. Maples’ business history). David Marshall, who works for Hyper9, also covered this news on his blog as well.

In any case, it’s nice to see that at least a few companies are doing well. To David Marshall and crew at Hyper9, here’s a good luck wish to you! If you keep up the good work on the Hyper9 products, I’m confident you’ll do well.
