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.

When I was first starting off in the technology industry, IBM was way
ahead of any other tech company, and by a huge margin. Minicomputers,
which had been on the scene for a decade, had really started to grow.
Companies like DEC and Data General, and a lot of smaller firms like
Prime, Control Data, SEL, Interdata, Perkin-Elmer, to name just a few,
also sold their wares at a brisk pace.
Now, IBM is an also-ran, behind the Dell, HPE, Apple, and
others. They are out of the personal computer business altogether, leaving that
market to the aforementioned companies along with Lenovo, who bought
IBM's PC division.
