Coraid is the storage appliance brand of SouthSuite, Inc and the next chapter in a 16 year journey.
Brantley Coile founded Coraid, Inc. in 2000. He and a small team of developers worked on inventing the ATA-over-Ethernet protocol and began selling their first storage appliances in 2005. The organization grew rapidly until the recession of 2008. As sales plummeted globally, Coile was left with a difficult decision: lay off half the staff or seek venture funding.

Twenty-five years ago this month, I hung up the phone in my kitchen. I paused, my hand still on the receiver, and watched Betsy, my wife, make dinner as our five-year-old daughter played with chess pieces on the floor. After a moment, I said, “I think there was a house in that conversation!” I’d just finished a conversation with John Mayes. We knew each other from operating system work at Adaptive Corporation, a spin-off of Network Equipment Technologies, and he’d called to see how my recent move back to Athens, Georgia had gone. As we caught up on how life was going post-Adaptive, he mentioned a problem he’d run into as a consultant cleaning up sysadmin messes (there was no shortage of messes in those days).
