Sequoia Capital has just invested another $8 million — aside from the $3.5 million 5 months ago — in online video site YouTube. They serve up a whopping 100 million page views and 6 million unique visitors per day. All this capital will go towards new data centers and improvements to the website.
“We are pushing the boundaries of the Internet in ways that are unparalleled. By accelerating the build-out of our data centers around the world, we are poised to continue to serve up billions of videos in the most scalable and cost-effective way,” says Steve Chen, CTO and co-founder of YouTube.
