SwiftStack, a developer of software-defined storage technology, came out of stealth mode in March when it raised $6.1 million in Series A financing. And in July, it launched its private cloud storage offering based on OpenStack Swift technology.
San Francisco-based SwiftStack was founded in 2011 by a team of developers with experience in the Web infrastructure business. The company designed its software-defined storage for object storage technology to make it easier for customers in the Web, mobile and software-as-a-service markets to run a public storage cloud inside their own data centers.
SwiftStack is the core contributor to the OpenStack Swift open source project for developing a highly available, distributed object store.
