HQ: Lochristi, Belgium
CEO: Mike Wall
New Funding: $6 million
Backers: Intel, Quantum, others
Amplidata is a much-discussed startup in object-based storage technology, and new investor Quantum, which contributed to its latest funding round along with previous investor Intel, uses its technology under an OEM agreement. Amplidata's AmpliStor, which it introduced last year, can store billions of data objects on hundreds of petabytes of capacity.
Amplidata's other big news this past month was the naming of a new CEO, Mike Wall, who most recently served as president and CEO of Atempo.
