Ellison's storage start-up hits Europe

The new venture offers a system to work across differing storage architectures.

Start-up Pillar Data Systems, which aims to combine the worlds of storage area networks and network-attached storage, had its European launch at Storage Expo in London on Wednesday. The company, set up by Larry Ellison's venture capital company, offers a new kind of system, called Axiom, that aims to challenge NAS suppliers like Net Apps and SAN vendors like EMC.

"It shouldn't be a big decision, whether you go with SAN or NAS," Pillar's chief executive, Mike Workman, said. Pillar's Axiom systems are designed to work across different storage architectures while remaining cost-effective.
