Ellison Start-up Introduces Storage System

Posted in: Technical Track

Pillar Data Systems, the company where Oracle CEO Larry Ellison has put approximately $150 million of his own money, is launching its first product. According to the company, Pillar Axiom system is a box that can store more than 300 terabytes of data for less than half the price of other data storage systems.

The new product is designed to rival top-of-the-line systems from EMC and Network Appliance and Pillar believes its software sets it apart. Axiom can combine several types of storage systems into one—everything from low-end network-attached storage to more sophisticated systems. As another step away from the industry norm, Pillar won’t require customers to buy additional licenses in order to add more storage capacity.
