Symbolic IO is the first computational defined storage solution solely focused on advanced computational algorithmic compute engine, which materializes and dematerializes data – effectively becoming the fastest, most dense, portable and secure, media and hardware agnostic – storage solution.


The company was founded in 2012 by Brian Ignomirello, the former CTO of Hewlett Packard’s Global storage team, in an effort to transform the current enterprise storage industry from focusing on hardware, cards, chips and processors to embracing the way that big data works today and addressing the challenges facing companies with legacy systems. 


Based in Holmdel, NJ in the former Bell Laboratory facility, Symbolic IO and its IRIS™ products are set to transform enterprise data storage for media, government, healthcare, finance, military and other industries. By allowing traditional storage activities that relied on drives, chips and processors to be media-agnostic and data driven, Symbolic IO provides faster access, more security and decrease in overhead costs.
