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.

I’ve been through a lot since 2005. I invented a technology that launched a company. That business thrived and withstood a global recession. The unsustainable practices of Silicon Valley’s VC-funded culture eventually crushed that company and my innovations were lost forever (or so I thought). Making peace with the situation wasn’t easy, but I did and moved on to other projects. One day out of the blue, my original technology and trademarks returned to me as suddenly as they had disappeared. Today I’m working on rebuilding the company, only now with over a decade of hard-earned business experience. You may be wondering why on earth anyone would want to keep building these particular products after going through so much. After all, there are much easier ways to make a living.
