Data center startup Colovore disclosed on Tuesday that it raised about $8 million in funding.

The Santa Clara-based company led by President Sean Holzknecht didn’t say in its Securities and Exchange Commission filing who its investors are but said there are 36 of them involved in the funding.

Among the directors of the company listed on the filing are Les Pelio of Saratoga-based data center developer Pelio & Associates. The address given for Colovore is 1101 Space Park Drive, a 50,000-square-foot data center developed by Pelio.

In a June job posting, Colovore said it owns its own facility and described itself as having “a brand-new data center featuring super high-density power capabilities of 20 kW per rack and a management team with years of success running retail colocation facilities in the Bay Area.”

In addition to Holzknecht, other company executives listed on the filing include Chief Financial Officer Benjamin Coughlin and Peter Harrison.

Others board members listed are Doug Tudor and Michael Torres.
