Welcome 2013!

Happy New Year!

I wanted to take a moment to wish everyone a Happy New Year and a great start to 2013! 2012 was a great year for Maldivica. We officially launched our first offering in June and already have successful deployments with customers from nearly every continent and corner of the globe.  We greatly appreciate this warm welcome and would like to renew our commitment to making object storage easy and accessible to every organization.

Both cloud and object storage platforms saw record growth in 2012, and with that a rapidly growing need to connect existing systems and applications to them. We’re happy to be solving that problem for many organizations. Maldivica remains dedicated to providing a high performance platform that allows organizations to integrate legacy systems and applications with cloud storage and enable the growing ecosystem of tools and applications that leverage the storage platforms directly.

We would also like to introduce the Maldivica Storage Connector 1.2.1, available for immediate download from the Maldivica portal. For the Enterprise edition, please contact
