Compellent Founder Phil Soran Retires from Dell

Compellent co-founder and CEO Phil Soran has announced he is retiring on 31 March, the integration of Compellent into Dell having been more or less completed.

The announcement was made at Dell's Storage Forum in London today. Soran stayed on for a year after the acquisition by Dell to bed the acquisition down, and he feels things are now in good shape. Co-founders Larry Aszmann and John Guider left quite quickly after the acquisition.

The influence of Compellent's technology and business practices are being seen widely throughout Dell, with the Compellent's fluid data concept being adopted across the company's storage properties and also the CoPilot support scheme.

Soran has been involved with two storage startups: Xiotech and Compellent. Xiotech has struggled but Compellent has been a stunning success.
