Apple acquires FoundationDB

A notice on the FoundationDB site notes that it’s no longer offering downloads of its database software. Financial terms of the deal were not available. CEO David Rosenthal was previously VP of Engineering at Omniture and co-founded the company with COO Nick Lavezzo and Dave Scherer in 2009.

“Apple buys smaller technology companies from time to time, and we generally do not discuss our purpose or plans,” said Apple, in response to an inquiry about the company. FoundationDB has not responded to a request for comment.

FoundationDB had raised $22.7 million in two rounds from SV Angel, Sutter Hill and CrunchFund.
