Mosa StoreVancouverMosaStore, founded by Samer Al-Kiswany (PhD, Computer Engineering) and Awaneesh Shatmanyu (MBA, Sauder), is an economical storage system that provides high performance, secure and reliable storage service. It adopts innovative techniques to build an efficient storage system by utilizing the unused disk space from commodity desktop machines and network resources of the enterprise, and in turn, reduces capital and operational IT expenditures.

MosaStore provides an attractive alternative to existing storage solutions in terms of cost and performance. Especially for small and medium-size businesses and post-secondary institutes that, in the midst of electronic data explosion, need to provide a low cost, yet high performance storage system for their applications. The company recently found its first customer. The company will target SMEs throughout North America and will generate more than $2 mn in revenue in the first year.
