Mulesoft has grown up, from a company built around a quiet open source project to supply an enterprise service bus, into a potential cloud behemoth. It now offers 200 connectors to provide integration, either on-premises or in its CloudHub service running on Amazon Web Services.
Its three most recent rounds of venture capital funding have boosted its take to $131 million, with the latest round of $50 million backed by Cisco. The previous round was backed by Salesforce.com, and the one before that was backed by SAP AG. “It shows the neutrality of what we’re doing in the middle of everything,” declared Greg Schott, president and CEO, in an interview after Mulesoft announced the third round March 13.
