Katana Technology Inc.

stealth-mode precursor to Virtual Iron Software Inc.
was founded in 2003 by Scott Davis, Alex Vasilevsky, Steve Noyes and Ben Thomas
to develop a lower-cost alternative to large multiprocessor server systems.
The initial product target was a server cluster interconnected by Infiniband, running
a proprietary microkernel that provided a scalable virtual machine environment for a
suitably modified Red Hat Linux system. A separate management station provided interactive
provisioning, monitoring, performance and statistics for the virtual server resources.
