Ondat was founded in 2015 as StorageOS but in 2021 rebranded to Ondat in response to the recognition of the increasing importance of developers and the need for stateful applications. The company provides a software-defined cloud-native block storage platform for running containerized production applications in the cloud, on-premises, and in hybrid-cloud and multi-cloud environments. Ondat’s technology powers Kubernetes persistent storage to let businesses run stateful applications with storage services including data reduction, storage pooling, replication for HA, agile scaling and block check sums on any infrastructure, and scales with application demand.
Ondat closed a B round of funding worth $10 million in early 2021, bringing total funding to $20 million.
