“As we continue our expansion and welcome industry leaders like Abhijit and Gregg to our team, our top priority remains serving our customers and providing them with the software-defined storage platform that improves data access and protection while also reducing overall costs.”

The additions come at a time of transformation and growth for DataCore. The company has made a significant investment in R&D, resulting in an increase of technical talent of more than 40% in the last two years alone while modernizing software development and testing practices, opening a center of excellence in Bangalore, India, and a new office in Austin, Texas.

“The momentum we are seeing at DataCore underscores our longstanding commitment to building both a world-class product portfolio as well as recruiting and developing the best talent around the world,” said Dave Zabrowski, CEO of DataCore. “As we continue our expansion and welcome industry leaders like Abhijit and Gregg to our team, our top priority remains serving our customers and providing them with the software-defined storage platform that improves data access and protection while also reducing overall costs.”

The increase in resources dedicated to innovation will allow the company to continue accelerating its portfolio of best-of-breed storage products, which now includes SANsymphony, vFilO and Swarm, covering block, file, and object storage as well as automatic data movement and optimization. Last year the company made a strategic investment and joint venture in MayaData, sponsors of the leading container-attached storage technology for Kubernetes, OpenEBS.

Throughout the challenges the world is facing with the pandemic, DataCore remains a healthy, well funded, and growing company: it had its 12th consecutive year of positive cash flow and double-digit growth in net new revenue over the last few quarters in which the company has added an average of over 100 net new customers per quarter, with a strong performance in government, healthcare, and CSP (cloud service provider) verticals.

“DataCore’s continued growth is a direct result of our global partner and customer base and the trust they put in our technology every day,” said Dey. “Our solutions underscore our strategic DataCore ONE vision: to help customers realize the power of software-defined storage, to break silos and hardware dependencies, and to unify the storage industry, thereby enabling IT to make storage smarter, more effective and easier to manage for our users.”
