Cirtas Systems

Cirtas Systems was founded late in 2008 by serial entrepreneurs with a singular vision: solve the challenges associated with storing data in the cloud to make cloud storage work just like onsite enterprise storage arrays. Deployed in the data center, Cirtas’ Bluejet Cloud Storage Controller simplifies storage management and vastly reduces data storage TCO for medium and large enterprises.

Headquartered in San Jose, California, Cirtas emerged from stealth on September 20, 2010 and was recently recognized as a Red Herring North America 100 Company and Global Security Challenge finalist. For more information, visit
