Sistina Software, a start-up with software to help numerous Linux servers collectively share a single set of data, has obtained $10 million in venture funding, the company said Monday.

The Minneapolis-based company's software helps bring a high-end feature to Linux that could help database giant Oracle achieve its vision of replacing expensive machines with dozens of processors with collections of less expensive, smaller servers. It's a goal that could lift Linux into more important, demanding jobs.

The series B funding, led by Crescendo Ventures with Validus Partners participating, should be enough to carry the company to profitability, a Sistina representative said. Sistina now has raised a total of $20 million.
