Also their Technical Director, Michael Cornwell, previously worked as CTO of Sun’s Flash Division and prior to that was one of the gentlemen from Apple to put flash into the iPod. Recently storage veteran Vaughn Stewart also joined the company from a well known competitor – stating that Pure is the future of storage.
Frank Slootman from Data Domain, and the two founding members of VMware, Diane Greene and Mendel Rosenblum, are Pure Storage Investors.
