Flash, Virtualization Industry Veteran Joins @Tegile Executive Team As Chief Marketing Officer

Tegile Systems, the leading provider of flash-driven storage arrays for databases, virtualized server and virtual desktop environments, today announced that storage, virtualization and data management veteran Narayan Venkat has joined the company as its chief marketing officer.

Venkat has more than 20 years of marketing and product management experience at companies across the enterprise technology industry.  He joins Tegile from Violin Memory, where he served as vice president of products and marketing, helping the company position flash storage as the most disruptive data center technology since virtualization.  Prior to Violin, he was vice president of the cloud infrastructure business unit at VMware, where he successfully ran product management and marketing for several of the company's next-generation storage and data management initiatives in vSphere. 

According to Venkat, "The enterprise storage market is undergoing a major transformation driven by the incorporation of flash technologies for data storage.  With its comprehensive portfolio of flash storage systems, Tegile is well positioned to accelerate this transformation by enabling enterprise customers to cost effectively leverage flash to optimize their data centers and improve their end user experiences. I am excited to join the Tegile team and I look forward to helping the company continue to be a driving force in the data storage industry."

"Narayan not only has extensive experience and in-depth knowledge of virtualization and flash storage technologies but he has a real passion for them as well," said Rohit Kshetrapal, CEO of Tegile. "I believe that these are attributes shared by all of us here at Tegile and what sets us apart for the competition.  We are driven to provide users with a new generation of flash-driven enterprise storage systems that balance performance, capacity, features and price for a variety of business applications.  I look forward to Narayan's help in further delivering that message."

Venkat has an MBA with a focus on marketing and finance from the University of Chicago's Booth School of Business, and an MS in electrical engineering from Utah State University.
