    George, it has been a while. Working for the fastest growing NoSQL company in the world, Couchbase. Would love to connect you with our Marketing people and/or our engineering executives. We are doing really interesting things with SSD manufacturers. Working with Intel and Samsung on SSD projects. Interesting to you? Really cool that you are still working with Joseph.

    Hi George, we are a start up developing our own software and specializing in data storage and protection systems. We have designed and developed a solution helping companies to anticipate the upcoming and rapid growth of digital data, NODEUM.

    It is an intelligent storage and management system for massive data. Moreover, NODEUM is a scalable, hybrid storage and active archival system that offers optimal, secure and long-term management of data allowing you to, for instance, combine high capacity tape units, disks, or SSD via native virtualization of the file system.

    Willing to learn more about it?

    Hi George

    I don’t find hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) anywhere in storage Switzerland. How do you think about this segment? Isn’t it a trend which will change storage?
    We are a start-up in storage. Our main focus is hyper-converged infrastructure. Would be happy to discuss with you about this segment.
