This latest expansion follows Nasuni’s April announcement of the launch of their partner program.
Simpson brings more than twenty years of technology sales experience to Nasuni, much of which he has spent building strong channel and sales organizations for young, fast growing technology companies.
Immediately prior to joining Nasuni, Simpson served as Vice President of Worldwide Sales at Akorri, a storage and virtualization management company that was acquired by NetApp earlier this year. Prior to Akorri, Simpson was Vice President of Global Channel Sales and Strategy at Virtual Iron Software, a virtualization and virtual infrastructure management company that was bought by Oracle.
Nasuni was founded in 2009 by storage veterans to deliver a secure gateway to cloud storage that makes the cloud feasible for business users. The Nasuni Filer is a virtual NAS file server that runs on VMware, Microsoft Hyper-V and Citrix XenServer and leverages the resources of the cloud to simplify file storage and protection.
The company is backed by North Bridge Venture Partners, Sigma Partners and Flybridge Capital Partners.
