"Mountain View Data works with open source software such as InterMezzo, SnapFS, Lustre, and LinuxDisk to develop storage networks based on low-cost IDE hard drives, says Miller. "Our technology works with SCSI as well, but the IDE cost advantage is huge," he says. "With our technology, we can make IDE very reliable."
"InterMezzo is a distributed file system which allows the replication of large data pools, such as system images or large servers. Lustre works with clustered file systems under Linux. SnapFS allows data snapshots. LinuxDisk allows low-cost Linux servers to serve as storage controllers."
"Mountain View Data expects to close its Series A round of funding in December with six or seven companies, says Miller."
