SAN JOSE, September 18, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Diamanti, creators of the first bare-metal platform purpose-built for containerized applications, today announced the appointment of Andrew Wild as Chief Revenue Officer reporting to Diamanti CEO Tom Barton. Diamanti’s bookings are growing at a 300% year-over-year rate, as the first cloud-native platform integrating high-performance compute, plug-and-play networking, persistent NVME-based storage, Docker, Linux, and Kubernetes into one simple solution with full-stack support.
“Andy is a dynamic senior executive with broad international experience building and scaling business operations,” Barton said. “His extensive technology background brings proven leadership and vision to Diamanti’s executive team across market strategies, product engineering, marketing and sales disciplines.”
Wild joins Diamanti from Vertica, the world’s leading modern data warehouse and analytics platform, where he served as President leading all Vertica’s growth and customer initiatives. Previously he served as Chief Revenue Officer at Planet Labs, helping lead the disruption of the geospatial analytics industry. Prior to that he held senior executive roles at leading enterprise software companies, including OpenText, CA Technologies and IBM.
“Diamanti gives its customers the industry’s first purpose-built solution for running container-based workloads in Kubernetes on-premises, and then hooking that in with the cloud,” Wild said. “The growth implications for Diamanti are almost boundless. We believe it’s very much going to be a hybrid cloud world for the major corporations that we serve. A lot of their workload will be maintained on-premises. They still want to be cloud compatible. So they need a purpose-built platform to manage both environments. That’s our global opportunity.”
