According to a press release circulated this morning by Storage Newsletter, storage software startup Seanodes has sold off its assets to a French VMware distributor called Deletec after filing for bankruptcy last December.
The report says Deletec will continue to sell Seanodes’ Exanodes software, which turns commodity servers into iSCSI SANs.
Calls to phone numbers listed on the Seanodes website for its offices in Cambridge, MA and France returned a busy signal and “please check the number and dial again” message, respectively. Meanwhile, the most recent press release on the Seanodes website is from last September, and one source close to the company speaking on condition of anonymity has confirmed the company went out of business after failing to get more funding last fall.
A receptionist answering the phone at Deletec’s Paris office said no one at the company would be available for comment until next week.
We’ve also heard reports of funding troubles for cloud storage vendor Parascale. Another source who asked not to go on record says Parascale failed to get Series B funding and is being reorganized. The company quietly changed CEOs last month, bringing in Ken Fehrnstrom to replace Sajai Krishnan. Nobody at Parascale was available for official comment on this Friday before Memorial Day, either.
