OpenIO hires strategy head, aims disruptor beams at storage industry
OpenIO, an object storage startup, has recruited Enrico Signoretti as its head of product strategy.
He has commented on storage matters for The Register – see here and here for example – runs the Juku consultancy and co-organises the Tech Unplugged conferences from his Rimini, Italy, base.
OpenIO’s technology uses a grid of ARM-controlled disk drive nano-nodes. They are packed into an SLS-4U96 storage enclosure, and are like Seagate’s Kinetic disk drives in that they have direct Ethernet addresses and implement an object storage structure with object storage access commands, such as Get and Put. The drives run open-source SLS software.
