INFINIDAT, the market’s leading independent provider of enterprise-class data storage solutions, today announced that it has named Tony DeLisio as VP, Enterprise Financial Business Strategy and Pete Byrne as Regional Sales Director for the South-Central US. INFINIDAT, recently named a leader in the 2018 Gartner Magic Quadrant for General-Purpose Disk Arrays, is continuing to make strategic hiring investments to support its rapid global expansion.
Seasoned executive Tony DeLisio joins INFINIDAT as VP, Enterprise Financial Business Strategy, with over 30 years of management experience in business. His career has encompassed long tenures at HPE, Citi, EMC and Hitachi Data Systems, among others. DeLisio brings experience from both the vendor and client sides, and at INFINIDAT, using his experience within the banking sector, he will help to bridge the needs of the banking clients with their own technology teams through the use of INFINIDAT solutions.
“My work in the finance sector for many years as both a vendor and a client gives me a deep understanding of the financial industry’s unique storage needs. I’m excited to deliver on those needs with the strong portfolio of INFINIDAT solutions,” said DeLisio. “The data-intensive financial services industry relies on high-performance storage to fuel its many large, critical workloads and to protect data to meet regulatory requirements. With INFINIDAT’s petabyte-scale data protection and unrivaled reliability, I’m confident we’re ready to help the largest and most data-intensive firms solve their storage challenges.”
With over 30 years of storage industry experience, Pete Byrne comes to INFINIDAT from Pure Storage, where he was the Regional Sales Director for TOLAM and the Southeast. Prior to this, Byrne was a Sales Director at Commvault, running the company’s OEM business in North America, and at EMC, where he served as Area Vice President of Sales. Byrne brings extensive customer and partner relationship experience to INFINIDAT. In his new role as South-Central US Regional Sales Director, Byrne will help add to INFINIDAT’s growing customer base and develop successful relationships with new customers.
“I’m proud to join INFINIDAT to help the company take greater command over the petabyte-scale storage market in the South-Central US region,” said Byrne. “To manage and store continuously rising volumes of data, companies are searching for an affordable, high-performing storage solution that can scale as their business and data grow. This demand provides us with a massive opportunity to reach new customers and demonstrate why, with INFINIDAT, they no longer need to compromise between cost, performance or capacity.”
