What was it like moving from networking to storage?

It was really fun the first three months on the job to jump right in because as I started to tear apart all the hardware block diagrams and the software block diagrams of the portfolio I recognized 70 [percent to] 80 percent of this. It has got some different terms. It is this indirection layer in the file system versus this indirection layer in the ARC table but the principle is the same.

It was an exciting opportunity when the company decided to report storage as an external entity. My predecessor wanted to retire. He had been here a long time. Antonio called me and said, ‘I have a new gig for you.’ I said, ‘Yes, boss.’

What kind of impact has Antonio had on you and the storage team?

The joy I have had working for Antonio Neri (pictured) is he is very much an innovation-, customer-centric sort of thinker. For someone like me who really likes to push the bleeding edge, it is just fun to hang out here. I have a great team, and you should expect a very different pace and a very aggressive innovation agenda for us as we move into the second half of this year and into next year.
