PHD Virtual Technologies, a provider of esXpress VM Backup, has appointed Thomas Charlton as chairman and CEO. He has more than 20 years of leadership experience in technology ventures.
Prior to joining PHD Virtual, Charlton was the CEO of multiple software companies, including Shunra Software (network emulation and appliances), VoiceGenie Technologies (Voice XML speech platform) and Trailblazer Systems (eCommerce EDI software). He also served as CEO of Tidal Software (enterprise job scheduling) which was recently acquired by Cisco Systems.
Mr Charlton said: I am excited about the opportunity that PHD Virtual represents based on the innovative technology it has built to address the growing data protection needs of the virtualisation market. Customers with virtualised environments cannot adequately protect their growing information through traditional data protection solutions. Virtual server environments need technology that has been purpose-built to meet the unique requirements of virtual machines.
“PHD Virtual is the only technology to be designed specifically for a virtual environment with the performance and scalability enterprise customers require. It also delivers the unique distinction as a virtual solution that integrates easily with a customers’ physical storage environment for true end-to-end data protection.
