Reading Time: 3 minutes During the recent VMworld Europe, I’ve got the opportunity to talk with Gavin McLaughlin, Solution Development Director EMEA of X-IO about their products and their history. Yes, because X-IO has a long term (over two decades with different names) of expertise to deliver unmatched price/performance for enterprise applications. It’s all started in 1999 with Seagate Technologies with the idea of build a new zero touch design storage: Seagate invested over $100 million in this project, but on 2007 this technology was acquired by Xiotech and Intellinget Storage Element (ISE) has began is life on 2008.
