CRN, a media brand of The Channel Company, has named VirtualZ Computing one of the 10 hottest storage startups of 2023.

Joseph F. Kovar writes, “Storage startup VirtualZ in December exited stealth mode with technology that moves data between IBM Z mainframe servers and cloud or on-premises applications and vice versa. It’s $2.2 million seed funding round gives the company a total funding of $4.9 million. VirtualZ tackles issues around the fact that data on mainframes and distributed systems is incompatible, and custom coding is typically needed to bridge the two, with three applications that eliminates that need. These include Lozen, which provides real-time read and write access to mainframe-based data by cloud, SaaS, distributed, and custom applications; Zaac, which allows data in hybrid cloud, physical storage and SaaS systems to be accessed by mainframe-based applications in real-time; and PropelZ, a utility for quickly creating a copy of mainframe data as needed for experimentation or analysis in hybrid cloud environments.”
