CUPERTINO, Calif. -- Storage industry veteran Sajai Krishnan will take the top office at Parascale, a startup company developing cloud storage solutions for rich-media content in traffic-intense applications. As Parascales new CEO, Krishnan will steer the company’s launch into software to power highly scalable cloud storage solutions.

Krishnan comes to Parascale from NetApp, where he served five years. He was most recently the general manager of the company’s StoreVault business unit that focuses on network storage appliances for mid-market businesses. Krishnan also served as the general manager of NetApp’s Storage Management Software business, overseeing the company’s core management products.

“As technology and demand trends converge, I am really excited about the opportunity Parascale has to dramatically change the economics of digital content storage,” said Krishnan. “For businesses that aim to deliver rich-media, data storage is a major expense item in their P&L. Similarly, data storage is a major part of the cost of solutions in video surveillance, medical imaging, oil and gas, and other content-heavy verticals. Parascale software will enable 100% standard Linux servers to be knitted together into petabyte-sized data farms using 100% standard file-serving protocols, providing massive throughput and automatic load-balancing with minimal management. Working with solution and channel partners, Parascale will crack-the-code for cloud storage and enable content-businesses to roll their own clouds and service-providers to build the scalable infrastructure for their hosted content storage businesses.”
