ClearSky Data, a Boston cloud storage company, has unveiled more details about its data storage products.
Some 19 months and $12 million investor cash after its founding by entrepreneurs Ellen Rubin and Lazarus Vekiarides, the company is selling a data management system to businesses that promises to cut costs and help companies access their data just as quickly as if it were stored on-site.
The 30-person company has taken on testing customers since its founding, but it hasn’t publicized details about its product. Now, it said it’s offering companies access to cheap computing and storage services like those sold by Amazon without the need to send data back and forth between an office and a data center that could be hundreds of miles away. The company says it’s patenting a technology that will keep frequently used data close to where the customer uses it, while other data is stored for cheap off-site.
