Miller is an online retail veteran, having served as CTO for Motorcycle Superstore, of which he was a co-founder in 1998. Motorcycle Superstore grew to be one of the largest online motorcycle parts and accessories retailers, ranked in the top 200 by Internet Retailer magazine. In 2012 Motorsport After Market Group (MAG) purchased the company, at which time Miller became vice president of technology and assumed responsibility for all aspects of technology operations for two of the largest online motorcycle parts and apparel sites.

"The addition of Jason to our team is a win-win for our company and the industry at large," said Shaun Ryan, CEO of SLI Systems. "He has deep understanding of the challenges retailers face in attracting and maintaining online shoppers and building solid brand loyalty. He also understands the value of search and the overall user experience and will be a strong asset as we continue to deliver solutions that help retailers increase sales and strengthen brand visibility."

During his 16-year tenure at Motorcycle Superstore, Miller designed and led the development team that built a home-grown e-commerce platform and content management system utilizing .NET and SQL. Optimized site management and improved SEO functionality played a key role in growing both the Motorcycle Superstore and Motorcycle USA websites to be top destinations for motorcycle enthusiasts, enabled by cutting-edge features and custom search integration.

In recent years, after the acquisition of Motorcycle Superstore by MAG, Miller oversaw the design and launch of the first responsive design e-commerce platform in the motorcycle industry, which helped increased mobile conversions by over 50%. He also led the launch of the company's international e-commerce platforms into three new countries, increasing the brand's SEO footprint and international customer acquisition.

"Coming from the retail side, I have been a long-time fan of SLI Systems because of the superiority of its solutions and customer responsiveness, and I am absolutely thrilled to join this team of expert professionals," said Miller. "I'm excited by the opportunity to solidify SLI's industry leadership as the company enters new international markets and expands its best-of-breed offerings."

Most of today’s hardware manufacturers are building servers with at least one SATA Port, but not every systems engineer utilizes them. This is considered a loss in the game of maximizing potential storage space in a fixed unit. The SATADOM Series was created by Innodisk as a high-performance, small form factor boot drive with low power consumption to be plugged into the unused SATA port on your server board as an alternative to hard drive or USB boot-up. Built for 1U systems, this powerful device is smaller than a one dollar coin, and frees up otherwise dead space on your motherboard. To meet the requirements of tomorrow’s cloud hardware, Innodisk invested internal R&D resources to develop our SATA III series of products. The SATA III SATADOM boasts 500/180MBs R/W Speeds respectively, or double R/W Speed of SATA II products.
