ScaleIO was founded by Boaz Palgi, Erez Webman, Lior Bahat, Eran Borovik, and Erez Ungar, who have been working together in the data storage industry for a good part of the last decade and a half. The team members held key technology, executive, sales, and business development positions at storage companies such as IBM, Topio, NetApp, LSI, and XtremIO and have left their signature on some of the market’s leading enterprise storage products.

As designers and developers of traditional “built-like-a-tank” storage subsystems, as well as advanced storage functionality such as snapshots and replication, we were part of the SAN industry establishment that ScaleIO aims to replace. In addition, the ScaleIO team has a great deal of experience in building host-based, highly scalable distributed storage functionality.
