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.

As the old adage goes, it’s not if a drive fails, but when. A modern 3.5” drive rotates from 7200 – 10,000 RPM. If you do the math, that’s approximately 75-104 MPH (120 – 167 KPH)! Meanwhile, the heads glide over the platters on a cushion of air just 3-7 millionths of an inch. When you stop and think about it, it’s a miracle of technology they even work at all!
