Zetaris was founded by Vinay Samuel and Michael Cimino.

Vinay Samuel, a pioneer in “event based analytics” and parallel database technologies in the mid-nineties, went on to lead disruptive data analytics companies such as Netezza, Greenplum, Vertica, Gridmatics in Asia and (now) Zetaris.

Michael Cimino exited from the company, as an employee, in 2014.
