The story behind

From the beginning, Compuverde worked for both big consumer brands as well as more industrial B2B-companies and among their more significant developments is the foundation for a storage solution that still today is being used by telecom-, bank- and insurance companies in Scandinavia.

Over the years, the company's growing experience and competence evolved the deliveries towards an even bigger focus on big data solutions. During the same time, Stefan and his co-workers began work on their own software defined storage solution - much as a result of constantly having to experience less than perfect performance from products found on the market. Many years later and after some 800.000 lines of code, the team felt they were coming closer to a finished product when they met with prominent entrepreneur Mikael Blomqvist to define the next incarnation of the company. Focus was then to launch a product delivering both extreme performance, scalability and efficiency - something the big data world had never seen. Mikael, Stefan and the rest of the organisation quickly came to the conclusion that the only way forward was through a truly converged compustorage approach. Now, with this revolutionary and globally patented solution in place, Compuverde's market success is history in the making.
