SwiftStack is an innovator in private cloud storage for today’s applications. We founded the company in 2011 to help operations teams implement and manage an easy-to-use, multi-tenant, and highly scalable private cloud storage platform.
The four SwiftStack founders have worked together in various combinations for a long time, from established enterprise companies like HP and new old-guard web firms like Yahoo, to small startups like Airwave (acquired by Aruba in 2008) and SideReel (acquired by Rovi in 2011). Their most recent experience in the enterprise infrastructure and cloud arena (Engine Yard, CloudScaling) gave Joe Arnold, SwiftStack’s CEO, the notion that storage was ripe for change.
Soon after SwiftStack was founded, we were joined by several talented engineers from Rackspace, whose experience creating and running large scale storage systems is incredibly valuable.
