TeraSky History

1985 – 1994

With only $100 in capital, an old fashion telephone set and one of the first Xerox fax machines standing upon a carton box in a small office in Ramat HaSharon, Israel, founder Michael Burstein created MBI.

Mark Friedman joined MBI a couple of years later, followed by Gera Lifshits, Ariel Mazor, Sagi Fishbain and the remainder of the team. Each of these highly skilled professionals make up TeraSky today and are some of the key players behind TeraSky’s “MBI Spirit”.

People did not know a lot about Storage and Backup during that time. Customers actually referred to this concept as, “Computer Peripheral Equipment.” During these years MBI represented: Maxtor, Exabyte, Archive, Buslogic, OMTI and many other state-of-the-art young technology leaders during the eighties and nineties.

MBI’s first customers included: Efrat Future Technology (known today as Comverse and Verint); Scitex (known today as Kodak and HP); Elscint (known today as Philips and General Electric); Tadiran, Telrad, Optrotech & Orbot (known today as Orbotech and Applied Materials); Nice, Indigo (known today as HP) and many other OEMs.

1995 – 2006

After establishing a respected reputation and a high-level professional team, MBI expanded their business to provide customers with sophisticated storage, backup & restore solutions based on advance backup software such as Legato NetWorker and Veritas NetBackup; Advanced tape drives and optical drives robotics such as StorageTec, ATL/Quantum/ADIC, Exabyte, HP and Plasmon; and Storage solutions such as EMC and NetApp.

Our customer list now included The Israeli Aircraft Industries, Ministry of Defence, Israeli Defence Forces, Amdocs, Pelephone, Orange/Partner, Cellcom, YES, Phoenix Insurance, AIG, Clal Insurance, Union Bank, Bank of Jerusalem, City Bank, VISA CAL, Leumi Card, Coca-Cola, NDS/Cisco, Check Point, 3COM, DSP, Intel, Audiocodes, Marvel, Mellanox, Tower Semiconductors and many others.

The MBI Group continued its expansion – Integrity Systems, the leading consulting company in the Israeli market, experienced rapid growth. BOM, developed by the Integrity team, was sold to Legato Systems in 2002. Illuminator, the Integrity spin-off was launched and the MBI branch in Turkey quickly won the leading position in the fast growing Turkish market. The MBI branch in France was also established during this time.

In 2004, MBI was nominated by EMC as the “World’s Best Backup Solution and Service Provider.” Many other vendors also nominated MBI as the “Best Partner in EMEA.” META Group even rated MBI three years in a row as the #1 Service Provider for Backup Solutions in the rapidly expanding Israeli market.
