Scality appoints former VMware and HPE exec as new CRO to put 'emphasis' on the channel
Scality has appointed former VMware and HPE executive, Peter Brennan, as chief revenue officer to lead sales and marketing efforts and maximise revenue with an emphasis on partners and the channel.Brennan has over 20 years' experience in data storage leadership, which the storage technology developer hopes he will lean on to expand its hybrid-cloud, hyper-converged, and other businesses.The San Francisco-HQ storage specialist claims the rise in ransomware attacks, unstructured data growth and architectural complexity are pushing more IT buyers to seek and adopt modern file and object storage solutions.The company hopes the addition of Brennan will help to reach more of these IT buyers faster."Peter and I share an unfaltering belief that serving the channel serves the customer and, ultimately, maximises your success," said Jerome Lecat, Scality CEO."Scality's growth is strong and steady, and we are primed to meet the new business realities - realities that are unequivocally calling for object storage."Brennan added: "Scality's technology has the enterprise-scale capabilities that stand above a crowded object storage market space."I've seen what goes on behind the scenes, and loyal customers trust Scality for guidance. In addition, our affordable mid-market ARTESCA solution has increased revenue opportunities for partners - bringing enterprise-class features within the reach of more customers."It's a perfect mix for expansion, and I look forward to extending our partner-first approach to achieve Scality's growth objectives."Scality was recently selected as inaugural launch partner for the Veeam smart object storage API (SOSAPI) integration as part of the new Veeam Data Platform to improve storage data flow and consumption reporting.
