Ottawa – The shiny server is getting a lot of attention, but the startup is not making money yet.
“We’re still in the early stages of the journey,” said founder-CEO Mark Mardini.
Mardinis said the company has spent the past three years developing its software and its hardware, so it is early days in its rollout.
The company is launching a new service, called Shiny Server, and has started accepting orders.
But Mardakis said it still needs to gather some funding to make the service a reality.
“There’s still a lot that we want to do before we get to that point,” he said.
“Right now, we have a lot more stuff to do, a lot less funding, so we’re still kind of getting started.”
Mardinsi said the startup has started to build a small team of people and has already received several orders from customers.
The server service offers a cloud-based service for companies that need to store large amounts of data, but Mardinosis says it will expand in the coming months.
Mere hours after announcing the launch of Shiny Server at an event in Ottawa, Mardinasi said it would take around six weeks to fully build the service, but he expects it will be ready in time for Christmas.
The startup is also building its own hardware and software for the server, which is running on Linux, and is aiming to have the first customers signed up within six weeks.
Mardedini said the service is aimed at making it easier for companies to store their data on cloud servers.
“It’s a really, really easy and simple way to do that,” he explained.
“The more you can do that, the more data you’re going to have to store.”
