Leveraging advanced open source distributed file systems and commodity hardware, Mountain View Data will provide ISPs, ASPs, and enterprise data centers with reliable, scalable, high-performance and cost-effective offsite data storage and management solutions."

"Right now there are two major trends that impact our industry: one is the tendency for companies to outsource their IT and the other is the wolf-like appetite that everyone is showing for storage," said Cliff Miller, president and CEO of Mountain View Data. "We will provide highly reliable and scalable storage solutions at a fraction of the cost of traditional mainframe-based storage. And our leadership in storage technology will allow us to stay ahead of the pack."
