SwiftStack Founder Plots a Path Forward for Cloud Storage

In the beginning of the open source OpenStack cloud effort, there were two projects – Nova Compute and Swift Storage. Swift is an integrated part of most OpenStack distributions but it is also the focus for a standalone company called SwiftStack, which was founded by Joe Arnold.

In a video interview, Arnold discusses the current status of his company, which closed a $16 million round of funding in October and has total funding to date of $23.6 million.

“We’re not a distribution, we’re a software product that installs on top of a Linux operating system,” Arnold explained.
