Charles Giancarlo Unleashed
Charles Giancarlo is not a shy man. And he has no reason to be. In the last four years, he has led Pure Storage to be the second-largest independent storage vendor on the planet, one that is focused all-flash storage and the software and cloud services around it.
Giancarlo in April was the keynote speaker at CRN’s Best of Breed Virtual Event, where he sat down with CRN Executive Chairman Robert Faletra and CRN New Editor Steven Burke for a 45-minute discussion about Pure Storage, the storage industry, the IT industry, and the IT channel. During the conversation, he talked about Pure Storage’s role in the cloud, why people should stop thinking of Pure Storage as a hardware vendor, why businesses should not depend on cloud vendors for cloud storage, the impact of private equity on the channel, and more.
