Launched within the shadows of the September 11th three founders of Seven10 – brothers Bobby and Jim Moulton and Gary Lafreniere – started the company as a software development partner to major OEMs in Healthcare and Finance with the
In 2009, Seven10 shed its OEM-only strategy and launched the 2nd phase of growth as an enterprise class information management company with proven, differentiated solutions for data migration and cloud-as-a-tier ILM management. Since that time, Seven10 has experienced 60% Y/Y growth and continues to be a leader in providing converged storage solutions for long-term data protection.
Seven10 is headquartered in Lawrence, Massachusetts with sales and marketing offices in Florida and Germany.
2/BR: Tell us about your day to day job, and its challenges and successes
We deliver a secure, scalable, and centralized view of tiered storage.

4/BR: How many employees do you have and how big is your R&D department?
5/BR: Any other news about your company you care to share?
We successfully re-launched our Handshake Partner Program just last quarter with the additions of Bedroc, RoundTower and Comport Consulting as key resellers of the Storfirst suite of solutions. Our Handshake Partner Program was recently featured in TechTarget’s SearchITChannel.
6/BR: How many subscribers do you have?
7/BR: Could you briefly tell us about your revenue history, and what your future revenue growth would be?

11/BR: And what are your biggest accomplishments so far?
12/BR: What are your top selling account packages, and why are they enjoying so much success?
Our Storfirst Migration is the industry’s only 100% software-based solution for seamless data migrations.

13/BR: Are there any new products/services you are developing that will soon be available?
14/BR: Do you charge by account or by PC? Do you offer unlimited backup and restore?
15/BR: Are your products and/or services industry compliant? If so, please explain.
16/BR: One of the biggest concerns of online backup users is data security and privacy. How have you addressed those issues?
17/BR: Does your solution take into consideration compatibility across the major platforms, mobility, flexibility and constant access to data?
18/BR: Whom do you consider your main competitors? And Why?
We consider the past, present and future when developing our technology and develop it in a way that outpaces the constant innovation that takes place in the storage landscape. We build technology not just for the future, but to help customers transition from the past. In contrast, our competitors provide limited capabilities that focus on only one aspect of the customers’ problem domain.
19/BR: Large companies like Microsoft, Apple and Google have started to offer online storage solutions. What is your take on that? How can you compete with such companies?
20/BR: There has been a great deal of M&A activity in the industry during the last few years. Some companies are now listed on the stock markets. Do you think that major M&A will happen in the industry this year and beyond? What is your strategy?
