Topic: Cloud applications such as social networks have radically increased workloads, overburdening conventional file sharing and storage solutions while compromising user experience and creating challenges for data center and storage architects. The MaxiScale FLEX Software Platform is the first technology to solve the problems created by the unpredictable and ever-expanding data requirements of cloud-scale workloads.

Leading up to Under the Radar, the Dealmaker Media team interviewed over 150 startups to identify trends and filter through applicants to select a small group of presenting companies to hit the stage. In the past three years alone, companies they have hand-picked to present at the conference have leveraged the experience and the contacts they met to close deals with customers, partners and investors. Forty-nine percent of these companies have gone on to raise funding (receiving an average of $14 million) or be acquired.
