“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.
