MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., November 12, 2015 – Tintri Inc., a leading producer of VM-Aware storage (VAS) for virtualization and cloud environments, today announced that Tony Chang has joined Tintri as Executive Vice President of Engineering. As a seasoned product executive with extensive experience leading large product teams in public companies as well as scaling product operations in fast growing startups, Tony will lead Tintri’s engineering team to create VM-aware storage products that save the time, money and sanity of virtualized enterprises and cloud service providers.
“Behind our category-defining products that customers adore is the most talented product team in the storage industry—they dare to think differently and challenge the storage quo. We are all thrilled to have someone with Tony’s experience to lead this group,” said Ken Klein, Chairman and CEO of Tintri. “Tony’s background is perfectly suited to Tintri’s trajectory—he’s delivered products that led organizations through periods of hyper growth and that supported multi-billion dollar sales goals. His deep expertise in storage, cloud and infrastructure technologies positions Tintri to help more customers scale through simplicity and choice.”
Chang joins Tintri after spending almost eight years with NetApp in an engineering leadership role. Most recently, he led the ONTAP group managing over 1600 people worldwide. Prior to that, he served as Vice President of Engineering at LogLogic (acquired by Tibco), which pioneered log management and intelligence-driven big data solutions, compliance reporting and IT security operations. He also held the position of Senior Vice President of Product Development at Foundstone, which was acquired by McAfee.
“The storage industry is experiencing a great shake up, and I’m excited to join a company with a leading role in shaping the future landscape. Tintri is at the vanguard of VM-aware storage, building storage specifically for virtualized applications. Consider the track record of innovation Tintri has delivered in the past year alone—from VM-aware All-Flash Arrays to VM-level QoS and analytics—and you’ll understand why I’m so energized to work with this engineering team,” said Tony Chang. “Tintri is the company that is materially changing storage and simplifying life in the data center.”
Chang holds a Master’s degree in computer science from Stevens Institute of Technology, and a Bachelor of Science degree in material science from the National Tsing Hua University.
Tintri builds smart storage that sees, learns and adapts, enabling IT organizations to focus on virtualized applications and business services instead of managing storage infrastructure. Tintri application-aware storage eliminates planning and complex troubleshooting by providing VM-level visibility, control, insight and agility, with all flash performance for virtualized environment and the cloud. Tintri powers hundreds of thousands of virtual machines running business critical databases, enterprise apps, desktops and mobile apps, and private cloud deployments. Tintri helps global enterprises such as AMD, F5 Networks, GE, NEC, NTT, MillerCoors and Time Warner maximize their virtualization and cloud investments.
