About Us

Mission

Xoralgo, Inc is a technology company dedicated to developing a new RAID technology, replacing the legacy RAID 6, and other RAID variants built on top of RAID 6.

History

The idea of the new RAID originated from research by a team consisting of a professor (Marek Rychlik) and a graduate student (Mohamad Moussa). The duo worked extensively since the Fall, 2016 on research, filing a provisional patent and building out a proof-of-concept. The effort culminated in May, 2018, when Xoralgo was created as a university-driven startup company in collaboration with the University of Arizona.

Acknowledgments

We acknowledge the help of many members of the staff of TechLaunch Arizona, the intellectual property branch of the University of Arizona, who assisted us with research commercialization.
