Buurst, formerly known as SoftNAS, is a cloud data platform that allows businesses to accelerate, protect and store data across multiple clouds.

Buurst is committed to enabling the best data performance with the best cloud economics.

Buurst was founded in 2012 by Rick Braddy. The company is headquartered in Houston, Texas, with an office in Medina, Washington, DC.

Buurst recognizes the current model of charging organizations an additional storage fee is not relevant to the cloud and doesn’t position its customers for long-term success.

Buurst optimizes cloud storage decisions for organizations, from migration to granular monitoring and management to storage tiering for cost performance, across all major cloud platforms, ensuring superior performance and optimization of business-critical data.


Buurst works with a variety of tech partners to help customers migrate and store their business data in the cloud. Its customers include companies such as Samsung, Halliburton, T-Mobile, and others that leverage AWS and Azure cloud infrastructure.


Buurst has raised $5M in a new round on April 14, 2020. This brings Buurst's total funding to $10M to date.
