Former VMware Executive Scott Davis Joins Embotics as Chief Technology Officer

Embotics, the cloud automation company, today announced that Scott Davis has joined the company as Chief Technology Officer (CTO). Davis spent seven years at VMware, most recently as CTO of the company’s end-user computing business unit where he was instrumental in building that $1B business while driving product and technology strategy, partnerships and engineering initiatives across VMware’s product lines.

“Since my pioneering work on containers at VMware, I’ve been passionate about driving next-generation application architectures such as microservices and serverless computing. Embotics’ cloud automation platform is directly aligned with my interests and the opportunity to join the team was one I couldn’t pass up,” said Scott Davis. “Embotics has a deep and nuanced understanding of their customers’ need for agile cross-cloud infrastructure automation that can enable them to capitalize on new business opportunities quickly. As DevOps methodology, microservices, PaaS and clouds become pervasive technologies for business applications, flexible automation that effectively bridges and seamlessly coordinates both IT and developer needs for component orchestration across disparate clouds is required. Legacy-style integrated management suites are simply too complex to deploy and not agile enough for these environments. I look forward to working with and expanding the fantastic roster of customers and a talented management team.”

At Embotics, Davis will be responsible for managing technology and product strategy for vCommander, the company’s award-winning solution for hybrid cloud automation. Davis will also head up the Office of the CTO, an Advanced Technology Team chartered with accelerating value through new technology innovation.

“I can’t imagine a better fit for our team than Scott,” said Michael Torto, CEO of Embotics. “He is a creative, intelligent problem-solver who will shine as a key member of our executive team. Everything we do at Embotics is in service of making our customers’ experience the best in the industry, and Scott brings the right kind of experience, knowledge and leadership to help us continue to deliver on that promise.”

A recognized expert in virtualization, clustering, operating systems, file systems, storage and end-user computing technologies, Davis has held senior engineering and business management roles with both startup ventures and established technology companies. Previous roles include CTO at storage acceleration vendor Infinio Systems, President and Founder of Virtual Iron Software, which was acquired by Oracle as the core of OracleVM, and CTO at Mangosoft, an internet software and storage company that developed pioneering peer-to-peer clustering, caching and file system products.
