Customers are Recognized as Key to Business Success
Beaverton, Ore., September 6, 2018 – LINBIT USA, the pioneer in open source High Availability (HA), Disaster Recovery (DR) and Software-Defined Storage (SDS), has reached a milestone this September, celebrating 10 years of business in the Americas. Recognizing the deep collaboration with its customers, LINBIT USA credits its loyal customer base as a critical component for driving its tremendous growth over the last decade.
After developing the company’s flagship HA software, DRBD(R), in 2001, Philipp Reisner, CEO of LINBIT, founded the company in Vienna, Austria. After years of break through performance, DRBD was integrated into the Linux kernel in 2009. Today, DRBD has over 2 million downloads and is the foundation for LINBIT’s expansion into the SDS and Container space.
LINBIT USA was established in 2008 to offer development, consultancy, 24/7 support, and OEM/ISV integration services in North, Central and South America and boasts an impressive enterprise customer list of names, such as Cisco, Microfocus, CN Rail, Bechtel, Adamson Systems, Performance Matters and TruckPro.
TruckPro, with over 150 retail locations in 33 states, relies on LINBIT for resiliency. “Uptime is very important for our business and anything we can do to quickly recover from any issue is paramount,” said Henry SantaMaria, Director of Infrastructure at TruckPro. “Our investment [in LINBIT’s software] yielded a noticeable increase in performance and stability which we did not have before.”
“It gives me great pride in joining LINBIT employees, clients and business partners in celebrating the 10th anniversary of LINBIT USA, said Brian Hellman, COO of LINBIT and head of LINBIT USA. “We have accomplished a great deal since the business started, and as the company continues to thrive and expand, we are very excited about our future. Our customers have made us who we are today.”
