Former Riverbed EMEA vice president Marcus Chambers has popped up at US VM storage specialist Tintri to oversee its expansion into Europe.
Tintri, which builds VM-aware storage appliances, is moving beyond its domestic market for the first time following storng growth and increasing interest in its solutions, and today planted its flag in UK soil with the appintment of Zycko to run its distribution operations.
The firm is also recruiting for an EMEA-based high-touch sales force to drive business back into the channel.
Chambers, who joins as vice president of EMEA and APAC operations, said it was "impressive" to see the amount of attention the firm had received since its launch earlier this year.
"It's indicative of the market's readiness for a VM-aware storage appliance. There's a tremendous opportunity in expanding to the European market," he said.
Tintri claims it helps enterprise customers "overcome storage-centric pain points to broaden virtual deployments."
