iTnews.com reports makers of Yellow Machine in liquidation

The Web publication itnews.com.au of Australia reported on Sept. 16 that Anthology Solutions, makers of Yellow Machine, a raid system reviewed in the August issue of Professional Photographer magazine, has gone into liquidation.

The product Web site, www.yellowmachine.com, now routes to www.yellowmachinecommunity.org, a user forum where Yellow Machine users offer advice and troubleshooting support. A Yellow Machine database of technical support FAQs is also still available.

According to itnews.com, a company statement previously available on the Web stated that Anthology Solutions had permanently closed as of Sept. 15. The story quotes John Robinson, country manager for Australia and New Zealand at Anthology, said the company’s closure was related to funding issues.

“The product was doing well and was getting good traction in the US and locally. However, there were issues relating to funding, management needed funding to bring the company through the year and they just couldn’t do it any longer," Robinson was quoted as saying in the article.
