Acronis Lands Red Hat Exec To Help Boost Cloud Storage Business

Acronis hired Scott Crenshaw, former vice president and general manager of Red Hat's Cloud Business Unit, to help boost its cloud storage business.

Crenshaw will be tasked with meeting the storage challenges associated with the mix of public and private cloud infrastructure that many organizations are currently using.

"Companies are developing hybrid clouds that mix private and public clouds," he told CRN. "It's a good idea. But it creates a lot of incompatible technologies, especially in storage. The future of the cloud is the ability to access data in any way customers want to. This is what Acronis can solve."
