In his new role, Stephenson will be responsible for leading all of the engineering efforts for the company.

"One of the critical attributes of driving growth in a technology company is the value placed on ongoing research and development," said Bianchini. "The addition of Dave to our team reinforces this tenet and will enable the company to further build upon our innovative edge-core storage architecture and continue to deliver products that give customers the agility and performance they require from their storage infrastructure. We're excited to have Dave on board."
