Tonian Systems, Israel-Massachusetts start-up working on virtualization software, attracts seed funding
- Kaplan says the company intends to remain in stealth mode for a while. But "I can tell you that we are developing software in the enterprise infrastructure and virtualization space," he writes via e-mail.
- The small team is split between Charles River's Waltham office and Israel. LinkedIn lists four employees, but Kaplan suggests there are more, without being specific.
- The company plans to set up its engineering team in Israel, but have key management and marketing executives in Massachusetts.
- Kaplan says that Tonian took its name from the Tonian era, a geologic period that lasted for about 150 million years. "We plan to be around for a long time and create a new Tonian era," Kaplan writes.
