Stellar Team has a Running Start With its First Customer
SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 16 /CNW/ - Jerome Lecat, Giorgio Regni, Serge Dugas, Daniel Binsfeld and Brad King are launching Bizanga Store as a spin-off from Bizanga.
Bizanga, the company that developed and delivered the most scalable and full-featured email message processing platform, was sold yesterday to Cloudmark, the global leader in carrier-grade messaging security, with Olivier Lemarie taking over the role of VP Gateway Technology.
"This is a win-win development for all existing or future Bizanga customers," said Jerome Lecat, CEO. "It provides existing IMP customers with a much larger installed base and a development team focused on messaging security. At the same time, it will allow the new Bizanga Store to focus on delivering a product line which is mission critical to its customers."
The experienced team behind Bizanga will continue leveraging decades of proven telecom experience to provide unparalleled field service and operational support to their customers at Bizanga Store. The company will be based in Paris and San Francisco and will build on the team's existing relationships with service providers worldwide.
Bizanga Store has developed a massively scalable storage platform providing significantly easier application deployment at a fraction of the cost of traditional storage. This solution is uniquely suited to cable operators deploying competitive email services and hosting providers who want to grow cloud storage services. It is sold as software for deployment at the customer locations.
"We are proud of our superb technology," noted Serge Dugas, CSMO of Bizanga Store. "However, we are even more proud of our management team. Very few startups can offer its customers the depth of telecom operator experience of our team."
Based on patent-pending technologies, the storage platform is hardware-agnostic, scales from very small deployments to petabyte size and is fault-tolerant and self-healing. It provides a single global namespace and is easily administered through a centralized Web GUI or scriptable command line system.
"Two years ago, we asked our customers what their next challenge was," said Giorgio Regni, Bizanga Store's CTO. "Their unanimous response was storage. We listened and for the past 24 months we have been busy quietly building their dream technology, the Bizanga Ring."
Telenet, Belgium's largest provider of broadband cable service, has been deploying the solution to underpin its next-generation email service. It has recently announced availability of this service in mid-March 2010, providing 100 times the mailbox size of its previous service generation.
