Hot on the heels of Y-Combinator’s demo day, we’re releasing Cloudant co-founder Mike Miller’s talk about his company’s journey from Y-Combinator to its acquisition by IBM. Prior to Cloudant, Miller worked alongside other scientists, analyzing petabyte datasets on CERN’s Large Hadron Collider project. From a technical perspective it was no easy feat, but despite all his work, he admits that Cloudant was also a challenge.
Says Miller, “We had no idea how to run a service. If a database [at CERN] goes down we could still buffer the data for a day. [With Cloudant] if a database goes down, people can’t buy or sell things.”
