Company Details


Amplidata provides unbreakable storage technology that is ten thousand times more reliable than current RAID based technologies, requires three times less storage and power and is thereby five times less expensive than current storage solutions. The Amplidata Distributed Storage System fundamentally changes the way how data is stored. The company’s patent pending BitSpread encoding technology offers the scalability and ease-of-use of a next generation RAIN grid, creating a 10,000 times more reliable alternative to RAID. Through more efficient usage of power and raw storage capacity, Amplidata drastically decreases the storage cost. Amplidata easily scales up to tens of Petabytes.

Amplidata responds to the market's need by solving the problems traditional technologies face and guarantees ultimate availability on all storage tiers. Leveraging distributed storage technologies, Amplidata enables customers to build highly available storage infrastructures at significantly reduced cost. The company is addressing some of the inherent weaknesses of high capacity disk systems, such as performance, bit error rates, mean time between failures and RAID rebuild times which have not improved sufficiently to keep up with the explosion of digital storage needs.

Amplidata was in founded in 2008 by Wim De Wispelaere (CEO) and Wouter Van Eetvelde (COO), two storage veterans. They have been involved in the development and launch of several innovative products and technologies. Serial entrepreneur and high-tech visionary Kristof De Spiegeleer is the primary investor. The trio De Spiegeleer, De Wispelaere and Van Eetvelde was previously successful with DataCenter Technologies (acquired by Symantec) and Dedigate (acquired by Terremark). De Spiegeleer also added Q-Layer (acquired by SUN Microsystems) to his track record.

Amplidata has its operational headquarters at the Innovation Center in IT Valley in Lochristi, near Gent, Belgium. R&D are located in Belgium and Egypt, sales and support are represented in a number of countries in Europe and North America. More information can be found at
