ioFabric Raises Seed Round, Prepares to Emerge from Stealth

ioFABRIC is reparing to emerge from stealth mode with a product that promises to dramatically change the way that the ever-increasing volume of data is stored and managed.

The company has received seed funding from private investors and Real Ventures.

The team behind ioFABRIC has worked together for 20 years across four previous startups.

“I am excited to be working with this great team yet again,” said Steven Lamb, co-founder and CEO. “Together, we will deliver a software-defined storage product that delivers industry-unique QoS-based storage automation and unifies existing and new storage investments to create a dynamic platform that delivers Storage-as-a-Service across a business.”

“Storage is undergoing a technological evolution that we see only once every few decades, and it’s an exciting time to be involved with the entrepreneurs and technologists who are attacking tough strategic problems, and creating tremendous value across the enterprise storage stack,” said JS Cournoyer, General Partner at Real Ventures.

Lamb’s first company, Border Network Technologies, became the second largest firewall vendor worldwide.

Rayan Zachariassen, Chief Technology Officer at the company, is an expert in network and systems architectures and systems software support for efficient data storage systems. Andrew Flint, Vice President of Marketing, brings experience with product and corporate marketing to enterprise targets. Nigel Miller, who directs business development at the company, rounds out this strong team with leadership experience in Fortune 500 companies.
