We've invented a brand new internet protocol for privacy at our company, so it's a privacy-preserving internet protocol. We do end-to-end encryption but if your phone's offline, then we need someone to install that encrypted stuff that you might be sharing with somebody else. We have a technology called Docker Swarm running across multiple data centers. Files need to be put somewhere that can be accessible across multiple Google data centers. So we actually ran our system, something called GlusterFS for a while and hit a whole bunch of problems. That meant that we had to have somebody, me because we're a startup, looking after it all the time and that just became pretty boring. That's a boring job.
I was looking for a vendor to come up with technology that I didn't have to look at every single day and that's where we came across NetApp. I set it up, deployed it, and haven't had to touch it. Our use case is really having a network file system across multiple data centers that is highly resilient.
