PolyServe, an emerging company in software for deploying and managing Intel-based server clusters for enterprise applications, recently announced that it has successfully raised $19.5 million in Series C funding. Greylock, New Enterprise Associates, and the RODA Group participated in the funding round. PolyServe will use the funding to expand its product development and business operations. PolyServe software helps companies create centrally managed cost-effective farms of standard servers to run enterprise applications such as databases, ERP, CRM, web servers and file servers. PolyServe software makes these farms simple to manage, highly-reliable and extremely flexible while providing dramatic cost savings of standard hardware from multiple vendors and greatly simplifying management by enabling groups of servers to be treated as a single unit. Business applications, databases and infrastructure components can be installed once, configured and maintained in one place, and made available to many servers simply by pointing the servers to the files on a SAN. PolyServe has partnerships in place with the following industry leaders: Brocade, CommVault, Dell, EMC, Emulex, HP, IBM, Intel, McData, NTT Comware, Oracle, QLogic, SuSE, Topspin & XIOtech.

Squeak! - Animal Brands and Metaphors in the Storage Market
Animal marketing metaphors are popular in service industries, but you'd be surprised how many companies have used animals in their marketing of data storage products and services.

The storage market was worth over $160 billion in 2006, and as it gets bigger - more companies will turn to animal brands to help differentiate their otherwise bland products and lend them artificial (or deserving) characters and virtues.

The idea behind this type of marketing is to suggest positive connotations so it's unlikely that anyone will choose to associate their products with gremlins. But you may be surprised by the population of the storage ark.
