I’m thrilled to be part of the team.”
“Businesses need to ensure their systems can perform and scale as fast and as big as their data requires. Deep makes this possible in a way no other vendor has been able to do. In field testing and comparison benchmarks against highly tuned database technologies, Deep delivers orders of magnitude better speed, scale and compression, while ensuring data is highly available and resilient,” said Miller. “The use cases for Deep Engine are broad, from protecting data, to accelerating development of next-gen applications, to powering Internet of Things solutions. I’m looking forward to helping drive adoption by everyone from new economy startups to enterprises and service providers.”
