Company Name: Savage I/O
The Lowdown: Savage I/O is a veteran-owned business founded in 2010 as a developer of high-performance NAS and SAN appliances. Those appliances are based on the Batavia, N.Y.-based company's "DataBrick" concepts which fit up to 144 TBs of raw hard disk capacity in a 4U rack mount enclosure. The DataBrick is unique in its patent-pending tray that slides out from the front of the enclosure to give access to multiple rows of drives without the need to pull the enclosure out or open the entire case. Savage I/O has a channel portal to provide quick quotes, and recently introduced a financing program.
