ClearSky Data is betting it can change how enterprises consume data storage. CTO Lazarus Vekiarides pulls back the curtain and offers details about this startup, which is currently in stealth mode.
ClearSky Data has piqued the interest of many startup watchers. One reason why is the enterprise infrastructure and data storage startup is in stealth mode. Another reason is that tech entrepreneur Paula Long of DataGravity introduced ClearSky Data's founders, industry veterans Lazarus Vekiarides and Ellen Rubin. Vekiarides revealed some interesting details about ClearSky Data in this Q&A with TechRepublic.
When asked what his enterprise tech "dream" would look like, he wrote that ClearSky Data "is betting that we can completely change the manner in which enterprises consume data storage, which means we're working to solve a chronic, incredibly expensive problem, especially given the way the enterprise data footprint has been growing." Vekiarides also identified these competitive trends in ClearSky Data's space: solid-state storage, hyperconvergence, and software-defined storage. He shared that ClearSky Data plans to go to market later in 2015.
