Stealth startup Pliops unveils plans for storage processor

Pliops has emerged from stealth mode to herald its ambition to develop “the next generation NAND flash Storage Processors”. These are intended for use in disaggregated and hyperconverged storage and database systems.

On its website, the Israeli startup says its technology greatly simplifies the storage stack, “thus enabling highly scalable storage and DB solutions with optimal cost, power consumption and performance improvements”.

Pliops is a Tel Aviv company founded in 2017 by three guys who worked together at Samsung’s NAND R&D centre in Israel. They are Uri Beitlar, CEO; Moshe Twitto, CTO; and Aryeh Mergi, chairman.

The startup has secured undisclosed funding from State of Mind Ventures.
