CRN looks at 10 startup storage vendors that in 2019 made headlines as they came out of stealth, unveiled their first storage products, or pursued acquisitions.

Vast Data

CEO and founder: Renen Hallak

New York-based storage technology developer Vast Data early this year unveiled a new $40 million funding round and introduced its Universal Storage system, aimed at combining high performance and low-cost technologies to develop exabyte-scale storage with the cost of traditional storage systems. Vast Data is doing this with a combination of three technologies: high-performance NVMe-over-Fabric that allows CPUs to directly access the internal SSDs, the use of consumer-grade QLC (quad-level cell) flash technology, and the use of 3D Xpoint non-volatile memory technology. It is targeted at high-performance workloads in such areas as artificial intelligence, machine learning, data analytics, and deep learning. The company in September launched version 2.0 its Universal Storage platform with expanded support for AI applications, continuous snapshots, and asymmetric cluster expansion.
