I've written about Greenplum (here and here), which hopes to be a disruptive force in the business intelligence and datawarehousing arena with its open source stack. Today the company announced $19 million in funding, a major customer win (Smart Communications, the leading wireless service provider in the Phillipines), and the appointment of Bill Cook, a 19-year Sun veteran with a sales background, as CEO.
