ClearSky Data: Managed Storage Across Physical, Cloud Environments
CEO: Ellen Rubin
ClearSky Data, which in August came out of stealth, combines the performance of local primary storage with cloud storage scalability and flexibility, delivering pools of storage with low latency from local points of presence, according to the company. The Boston-based software developer in November unveiled a B-round of funding, which includes investment from its first strategic investor, Akamai Technologies.
ClearSky Data is essentially an MSP that helps customers find a better way to get value from their data. It does so by managing customers' entire data life cycle, so customers don't have to touch it, while still providing the kind of service level agreements customers get with their own infrastructure, the company said. It brings customers to storage points of presence in colocation centers.
