Buurst’s Story

Buurst, formerly known as SoftNAS, was founded in 2012 by Rick Braddy. At the time, Rick was a disgruntled storage customer himself, fed up with traditional on-premise storage and the high costs associated with it.  Rick saw a gap that needed to be filled with his client’s infrastructures. With an ambitious goal to make high performance data storage affordable, Braddy set out to fulfill the need for a storage software subscription model on the cloud.
