Overview
DataCore Software is a leading software defined storage vendor specializing in storage virtualization, storage management, and storage networking. DataCore was founded on February 4, 1998 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The original team of 12 employees had previously designed and pioneered high-end storage subsystems at Encore Computer. The company was formed to build portable storage virtualization software to manage and control storage resources and insulate users and applications from storage-related disruptions. The company also describes itself as a leader in software defined storage architectures based on its solutions being hardware independent and managing and auto-tuning the performance and utilization of all forms of storage including flash memory technologies, spinning disk drives and Cloud storage.Microsoft was founded by Bill Gates and Paul Allen on April 4, 1975, to develop and sell BASIC interpreters for Altair 8800. It rose to dominate the personal computer operating system market with MS-DOS in the mid-1980s, followed by Microsoft Windows. The company's 1986 initial public offering, and subsequent rise in its share price, created three billionaires and an estimated 12,000 millionaires from Microsoft employees. Since the 1990s, it has increasingly diversified from the operating system market and has made a number of corporate acquisitions. In May 2011, Microsoft acquired Skype Technologies for $8.5 billion in its largest acquisition to date.
