Incipient Is All Potential

Former Sun Microsystems Inc. (Nasdaq: SUNW) storage exec, Joel Reich, now vice president for marketing at SAN software company Incipient Inc., says this startup is just a vision thing,” so far.

The company name sums it up nicely. The dictionary definition of Incipient is: Beginning to be, or to show itself; commencing; initial; as, the incipient stage of a fever; incipient light of day.

This definition appears on Incipient’s Website, slightly edited, mind you (someone has understandably cut out the “incipient stage of a fever” bit).

Unfortunately Reich was unable to tell Byte and Switch when it will be anything more than a vision thing. “We are locking down plans, it’s still very early for us,” he says.

According to Venture Economics, Incipient has secured some early financing from Greylock Ventures, which has stumped up $2.6 million in seed funding to get the company on its feet.
