Diablo Technologies, a proven innovator in memory system interface products, today announced the formation of a Technology Advisory Board comprised of enterprise IT industry innovators to participate in the strategic direction of the company’s Memory Chanel Storage™ (MCS) technology from an applications perspective. The Diablo Technology Advisory Board will be chaired by company Chief Technology Officer Maher Amer and is comprised of independent members: John Borkenhagen, CTO at IBM; David Cohen, Senior Technologist at EMC; Michael Cornwell, Vice President and Founding Engineer at Pure Storage; Thomas Fry, Director of New Technology Pathfinding at Samsung Semiconductor, along with other industry thought leaders.
“As we prepare to launch our line of Memory Channel Storage products that enable next-generation enterprise server and storage system designs, we have set our sights on unprecedented levels of performance for current and future applications,” said Amer. “To that end, we have assembled a group of top industry innovators to help refine the development of our revolutionary NAND-flash system solutions built on Diablo’s MCS architecture and deliver new levels of performance, scalability and integration for enterprise application developers and end users.”
In November 2012, Diablo announced closing of a $28M equity investment round to fund completion of its groundbreaking Memory Channel Storage technology platform and to-be-announced system products that provide substantial improvements in transaction processing and data analysis within compute-servers, enterprise datacenters and cloud-computing facilities worldwide. The funding round was led by Battery Ventures and included additional financing from Celtic House Venture Partners, BDC Venture Capital, and Hasso Plattner Ventures.
Founded in 2003, Diablo is successfully delivering products that enhance the performance and capability of memory system designs. Diablo’s innovative Memory Channel Storage technology platform is leveraging the disruptive capability of NAND-flash and future Non-Volatile Memory technologies to enable increased levels of application performance supported by a new class of enterprise server and storage system designs.
The Diablo executive management team, now developing its third family of memory interface solutions, has decades of experience in system architecture, chip-set design and software development at companies including Nortel Networks, Matrox Graphics, Goal Semiconductor, BroadTel Communications, ENQ Semiconductor, IceFyre Semiconductor, Mosaid Techologies and Huawei.
