Blist, the in the clouds database solution for dummies, just got USD6.5mill in series A funding.

The Blist product looks nice – full of Flex goodness. I’ve been having a play with it at home on my 256k, miles away from the exchange, DSL link and it seems surprisingly speedy. Given my connection situation I’d say it’s be usable for all but the most data intensive DB situations.

I’m not a massive fan of Flex UIs per se – they seem a little bling bling to me – but Blist is a good solid offering as far as I can see – it’ll be interesting what their recent funding brings in terms of development.
