Storage has appointed leaders from two of the biggest names in the
enterprise computing industry to its management team – leaders who will
help the company scale its business in the face of exceptional demand
for its enterprise Storage as a Service (STaaS) offerings.
Naor, new vice president of international sales at Zadara Storage,
was previously vice president of business development and international
sales for XtremIO, acquired by EMC. He has over 25 years of storage and
networking engineering, product management and sales expertise,
including co-founding pioneering data storage startup StoreAge and
leading teams in multiple geographies. At Zadara Storage he will
spearhead the company’s expansion in the EMEA and APAC regions by adding
partners, channels, hosting companies, service providers, OEMs and
strategic customers, along with additional team hires. Dani is based in
Zadara’s R&D center in Israel.
Carl, new vice president of product management at Zadara Storage,
was previously a solution architect at Amazon Web Services (AWS). He is
a veteran storage systems expert across both public and private clouds
with deep experience in evangelizing, designing, implementing,
maintaining, and selling enterprise storage. Prior to AWS, Craig held
senior roles at Gluster, 4Base Technology, Kovarus and McAfee.com. At
Zadara Storage he will set the product roadmap and lead the product
definition of new solutions and expanded functionality that set the
stage for continued fast revenue growth. Craig is based in the Seattle,
These new appointments follow Zadara Storage’s three consecutive
quarters of doubled revenues Q/Q – growth that speaks to the strong
market demand for flexible, pure OpEx, fully managed storage in public,
private and hybrid clouds. Already several of the Fortune 50 along with
hundreds of major organizations use Zadara Storage’s flagship Virtual
Private Storage Arrays (VPSAs) solution to enable NAS and SAN
functionality in the cloud that delivers the same high
QoS, high performant features of the traditional on-premise storage
that is now found only in enterprise data centers. The company was named
in the Cool Vendors in Storage technologies, 20141 report by
Gartner and has partnerships with AWS, Microsoft Azure, Dimension Data,
CloudSigma, and more – partners whose customers also need the
unsurpassed scalability, reliability, availability, serviceability, and
performance that Zadara’s STaaS solutions enable.
“We are very fortunate to be able to attract talent of the caliber of
Dani and Craig,” said Nelson Nahum, CEO of Zadara Storage. “Their proven
track record in enterprise storage and cloud solutions will help Zadara
Storage to establish ourselves as a leader in Enterprise Storage as a
Service for public and private clouds.”
