Memory®, Inc., (NYSE:VMEM), a leading provider of flash storage
arrays and appliances delivering application solutions for the
enterprise, announced today the promotion of Steve Dalton to senior vice
president of engineering from vice president of software. Mr. Dalton
joined Violin one year ago from Intel where he was the general manager
of Intel’s Datacenter flash software organization. Dalton reports to
Kevin DeNuccio, president and chief executive officer of Violin Memory.
Mr. Dalton has more than 30 years of experience in the storage and
networking markets, and brings extensive knowledge in compute, storage
systems and flash infrastructures. He has designed, built and scaled
talented, fast-paced engineering teams to drive productivity and
success. In his new role at Violin, he will leverage his experience to
develop industry-leading core array products into an expanded product
portfolio that addresses the major enterprise datacenter flash market.
“Since joining Violin, Steve has led our software strategy and
development teams. As senior vice president of engineering, he will
drive the focused efforts of our entire engineering organization,” said
Kevin DeNuccio. “His engineering knowledge of flash combined with his
ability to develop and manage effective engineering teams will be
critical to Violin’s long-term strategy to provide advanced data
management software to the market.”
“Violin’s leading-edge flash technology continues to surpass the
capabilities of any offering on the market,” said Steve Dalton. “Violin
is well-positioned to differentiate and offer an outstanding and
attractive flash solution portfolio.”
Mr. Dalton joined Violin one year ago from Intel where he was the
general manager of the company’s datacenter flash software organization,
responsible for flash development for enterprise datacenters. Prior to
Intel, Mr. Dalton served as general manager of the File Storage Division
at FalconStor Software, where he managed a product portfolio that
enabled storage virtualization and business continuity in heterogeneous
environments. Prior to FalconStor, Dalton was general manager and senior
vice president of engineering for Quantum where he built the Tiered
Storage System Division into a highly profitable, multi-million dollar
business centered on the software de-duplication platform (DXi). Earlier
in his career, he was vice president of engineering, then chief
executive officer of Gadzoox Networks which was successfully sold to
Broadcom Corporation. Steve was also one of the original developers to
implement the storage architecture for high-speed, 3D graphics I/O at
Silicon Graphics, Inc.
Dalton holds multiple patents, and is a published author as well as
co-author of a book titled FWB’s Guide to Storage. He holds a

To paraphrase someone famous, "The definition of insanity is to do something the same way over and over again and expect a different result".
Humans are creatures of habit and when it comes to storage, old habits die hard.
Why do we continue to put our faith in legacy storage providers when they haven't invented anything new in decades. Sure, they re-badge their products every couple of years to make their messaging look modern, but ultimately, it's the same old stuff with a new coat of lipsti...
