Data Agility means to us
Runs in user space, no external plugin, module or dependency.
Every workload has its own storage. No I/O blender. Granular control.
The workload drives. The environment handles the details. It just works.
Freedom from cloud lock-in
Move the workload across clouds, and the data follows. See & control cloud exposure.
Our work culture
People before deadlines. People before sales figures. When in doubt we seek to do what is best for each other and our users and community members.
Learn to listen
We seek to out-listen our competition. We understand that anyone can understand most of the problems by researching it and thinking about it - but to delight customers requires understanding their stated and unstated needs.
In all things, we seek to be open. We use ChatOps and other systems to "over-communicate" internally. And to the extent possible, we share with the community our issues, plans, and even our concerns.
We embrace ownership
We want each team member to be a manager of one who doesn't need daily check-ins to achieve their goals.
We are confident in our abilities as a team to dramatically improve the experience of our users. We know that a proper focus and unrelenting effort will eventually get us recognized as one of the world's most useful companies. We know winners never quit, never blink, never back down from any challenge. And winners laugh a lot too.
