Discover what it’s like to love your mass storage solution!
Organizations leverage Versity to implement low-cost, large-scale data preservation strategies for long-term storage and retrieving data in both on-premise and hybrid cloud environments. Versity serves customers in North America, Europe, the Middle East, South Asia, and Oceania. Versity’s customer base spans leading public and private entities in all major public and private sector industry verticals.
Our vision is to open and modernize the global market for mass storage systems so that data utility can be maximized while storage cost is minimized. Our dream is to radically simplify all aspects of usability, including installation, configuration, and administration, while at the same time increasing the overall scalability and feature coverage of the solution. For more than 20 years, the mass storage segment has been bound to proprietary, poorly engineered, expensive, stagnant, and overly complicated big tech products. Versity is in the process of disrupting the status quo with a singular focus on mass storage and a powerful new vision.
From open-data formats to a perpetual “read-only” license, to an open-exit clause in our subscription agreement, to our “direct support” model, all of our business practices are designed to reinforce trust with our customers. Versity has purposely rejected the established licensing practices that are prevalent in our industry.
Versity is the only 100% independent founder-managed and founder-controlled company in the mass storage industry. No investor or big company manager can change our priorities, budgets, third-party hardware support, or staffing. Our independence ensures that we are free to act in our customers’ best interest and always remain focused on our vision.
For the past five years, Versity has maintained an average software release cadence of two weeks. We run an agile DevOps environment that is highly responsive to the needs of the installed base. A modern codebase enables the rapid development of new features and the ability to test and release them safely.
The Long Game
Versity was structured and financed from the beginning with a long-term focus. For this reason, the company never accepted venture capital financing or any of the traps that come with it, like the requirement to grow way too fast or die trying. Versity is profitable, entirely self-sufficient, and positioned for steady long-term growth. All of our decisions are based on long-term thinking.
“Our dreams are made of steel.”
