Eren Niazi

Chief Technology Officer

Eren Niazi, a visionary who believed the enterprise would rely on source software to scale to millions of users.

At age 18, Eren Niazi had a vision of a free world where all programmers worked together to unlock and develop disruptive technology, furthering technological progress as a community. He knew he could now provide a low-cost, scalable enterprise solution. The “free world” he created became an environment for programmers to create technology and a platform of communication where these programmers could share their technology. A natural evolution occurred which would not only make source codes better as they exchanged hands, but it would also allow young entrepreneurs to further their own visions by freeing them from large, proprietary companies.

Eren is the original visionary/creator who pioneered the Open Source Storage movement—successfully branding the entire industry as we know it today. He holds several U.S. patents and patents pending, which specialize in disruptive technologies. One patent was the very first patent to ever be filed in AI technology. He also designed Facebook’s core systems during its hyper-growth phase and was instrumental in supporting Friendster, US Army, NASA, Lockheed Martin, and Shutterfly. Eren’s enterprise level open source products and services have each contributed and resulted in world-class, industrial strength deployments, changing industry standards forever.

Eren is committed to further creating a world for open source software, where free-thinking open minds are encouraged, and the reward is a better technological environment for everyone.
