We'll keep pounding away at them! MIS Steve McDowell: A day after NetApp released its earnings this week, it announced the retirement of a couple of key executives. Key among them is Joel Reich, who led NetApp through the rise and fall of its transition to flash storage as head of storage and software. Replacing Joel is (now EVP) Brad Anderson who has been at the forefront of NetApp’s cloud activities. This is truly NetApp putting its money where its mouth is, as it consolidates product control under the executive most aligned with its cloud strategy — its stated path our of its current morass. No pressure, Brad. Did you know that Oracle has a Flash Storage Division? Alternatively, more accurately, did have a flash storage division? Pillar Data, acquired by Oracle back in 2011, was quietly shut down this week. No formal announcements, and little press coverage, as what is reportedly over 400 of Pillar’s employees were dismissed via a conference call, with only about a dozen left to manage the detritus left in its wake.
Alright...let’s get started.
