New NetApp President Cesar Cernuda: Here’s How NetApp Will See ‘Exponential Growth In Cloud’

“We have 5,000 channel partners across the globe, with a presence in more than 100 countries where we sell.

Taking NetApp Further Into The Multi-Cloud, Hybrid Cloud World

NetApp in May made one of its most significant moves in a multiyear push to show the IT world that, even as it continues developing its best-in-class storage hardware, it has turned the page to become a leading-edge developer of software and services for helping businesses manage data in any cloud, in multiple clouds, on-premises and across all of them.

That move was appointing Cesar Cernuda, a 23-year Microsoft veteran, as its new president to spur the Sunnyvale, Calif.-based company’s further push into cloud-native and digital-native services.

Cernuda, in one of his first interviews since joining NetApp, told CRN that he will be leading the go-to-market side of the company, freeing up CEO George Kurian to focus on R&D. In his new role, he plans to call on his experience with Microsoft and the cloud to ensure NetApp continues to build the technology so that it is able to help businesses manage the storage, compute and virtual desktop infrastructure environments to make the cloud more friendly, lower-cost and efficient.

“When I say we’re going to have exponential growth in cloud it’s because we’re going to bring new businesses, we’re going to capture new logos that weren’t necessarily close to NetApp before and they’re now joining NetApp through the partnerships that we have with Google, with Microsoft, with AWS, and as well with our sales force,” Cernuda said.

Here’s a look at how Cernuda plans to help NetApp take cloud to the next level.
