A new company that has promised to disrupt the storage market has announced a formidable line-up of industry veterans to guide and accelerate its growth.
StorONE recently launched its TRU (Total Resource Utilization) platform after six years of “deep technical development” and more than 50 patents.
The company says its aim is to provide a software solution that achieves the most cost-effective results for customers, while significantly reducing the amount of hardware needed.
As a result, StorONE claims it will deliver a complete enterprise-class storage solution for less than $0.01 per GB.
Headquartered in New York with offices in Dallas, Tel Aviv and Singapore, the company has now announced its advisory board which includes a number of technologists and what its describes as “industry heavyweights”.
They include John Thompson who took over as chairman of Microsoft from Bill Gates in 2014 and has also previously served as CEO for Symantec after a 28-year career with IBM.
He is joined by Ed Zander who helped deliver 12 straight quarters of revenue growth for Motorola during his tenure as CEO and chairman. Zander also spent 15 years as president and COO at Sun Microsystems.
Kirk Bradley is another big name technologist named on StorONE’s advisory board. He is currently one of Oracle Corporation’s longest-serving members of staff, having joined the company’s technical team in 1981.
“We have been working diligently developing and perfecting the industry’s most efficient storage software with the insight and knowledge procured from all the members of our Advisory Board,” says StorONE CEO and co-founder Gal Naor.
“Ed, John and Kirk have been instrumental in helping define our business focus and our holistic approach centered on software algorithms rather than hardware engineering. Their expertise in building large and successful companies for the long term is in line with our plans for StorONE.”
