Several former EqualLogic executives into or behind the company. On the web site, you can only read: "We're an early-stage company currently in stealth mode building a breakthrough solution in enterprise infrastructure. We're led by experienced entrepreneurs with proven track records in cloud computing, storage, virtualization and data management."
Behind ClearSky Data, Inc., a Boston, MA-based start-up founded in 2013, there are several executives of EqualLogic, another start-up, in iSCSI SAN, that got $52 million in financial funding and was sold to Dell for $1.4 billion in early 2008.
One ClearSky's board's member is Paula Long, founder of EqualLogic who recently started current start-up DataGravity where she is CEO. Advisor Don Bulens was president and CEO of EqualLogic.
The new company is supported by two investors, General Catalyst Partners and Highland Capital Partners, who put $12 million into the new venture late last year according to Boston.com.
