Startup Nutanix hired longtime solution provider Steve Kaplan (pictured) as its new vice president of channels and strategic sales. Kaplan, previously vice president of virtualization and cloud computing at Presidio Networked Solutions, sees the move as a chance to gain greater exposure to disruptive technologies.
Nutanix develops technology that combines storage and virtual servers. "Every so often a disruptive technology comes around," Kaplan told CRN. "I based my career around that. Now we're here again with Nutanix. We're taking SAN-less compute and making it available for the masses."
