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.

Nathan had a problem. The “Defense Calculator,” as the IBM 701 was initially known, was funded with a clear mission: build a stored program computer that could do partial differential equations.
As the Korean War began overseas, aircraft producers of the 1950s scrambled to produce new jets. IBM’s marketing team talked to companies all over the aerospace sector, and every one of them struggled with partial differential equations. Today, we’d call IBM’s situation a “killer app” opportunity.
Nathan sat in one of the 23 rooms in the Kenyon House recently purchased by IBM as a research laboratory. He knew his objective, but designing the architecture was going to be an undertaking. Luckily, he was just the fellow to do it.
