Yesterday VMTurbo announced that Dennis Hoffman, currently Senior Vice President, Service Provider at EMC Corporation, has joined the company’s Board of Directors.
With more than 20 years of industry experience and a security background, Hoffman was one of the key men in the acquisition of RSA Security and the formation of EMC’s security division.
Service providers are building out cloud infrastructures on vCloud Director, CloudStack and OpenStack platforms and must run these environments at high levels of efficiency to compete with commodity providers like Amazon EC2. At the same time, they have to differentiate themselves with service, service level assurance and management capabilities. VMTurbo is perfectly positioned to assist on both fronts and I look forward to helping advise the company as they accelerate these efforts.
