Pliant Technology pioneered the introduction of high performance SSDs into mission critical data center environments through the development of the industry’s first SAS controller purpose-built for use with leading edge SLC and MLC NAND Flash.
The company was acquired by SanDisk (NASDAQ:SNDK) in May 2011.
"Barry Eggers and the Lightspeed team were invaluable to Pliant. Barry has good instincts around IT infrastructure and can identify emerging trends before others see them. In addition, Lightspeed's network of relationships in the world of IT infrastructure is very broad and was instrumental to our company's success."
