About us

We helped to build the cloud.

Now we are giving control back to users.

RStor is led by senior executives from some of the most important brands in cloud computing and enterprise technology. The founding team created Rackable, the hardware provider of choice for leading hyperscale environments. Later, after constructing the infrastructure for Facebook, the team built a successful data storage company – Optical Archive Inc. and later sold the company to Sony.

At RStor, we are innovating on behalf of customers to deliver efficient, secure and easy to use cloud computing capabilities.
The RStor Multicloud Platform is an entirely new way to Secure, Connect and Orchestrate resources for Enterprise Performance Computing.
