  • Editor's comments:- in June 2010 - Nirvanix launched hNode - a hybrid cloud storage service which includes all the networking hardware, software and storage needed to provide an on-premise cloud storage solution contained in a minimum 200TB configuration, expandable to petabytes. The customer provides data center space, power and cooling and Nirvanix staff monitor, manage and maintain the solution.

    In May 2012 - Nirvanix announced it has raised over $25 million in a Series C funding round - bringing its total capital raised to $70 million.

    Nirvanix today (May 2013) isn't engaged with the SSD market - and that's why I'm not covering it. Their focus is on what they call Tier N storage by which they mean treating cloud storage as a new tier. This is currently at the opposite end of the performance spectrum from most SSD requirements - however there will be convergence when SSDs replace HDDs in the datacenter as lowest cost to own capacity.

    We haven't got there yet - but the SSD industry is close (1 to 3 years).
