ionir, the microservices-based Kubernetes Data Services provider, has announced the appointment of Mike Wall as its new chief executive officer. The move comes as the company experiences rapid growth in North America and globally, accelerated by the launch of its CI/CD pipeline acceleration solution.
Wall, who has extensive experience leading both public and emerging growth companies, served as ionir’s chairman for several years and now moves to a full-time operating role. Previously, Wall was chairman and CEO of Amplidata, an object storage software company, and led its sale to Western Digital.
He also served as CEO of storage innovator Atempo and as general manager of Intel’s Storage Division.
ionir was built from the ground up on a microservices-based Kubernetes platform, and is positioned to serve the growing need for data persistence, agility, and protection. ionir’s patented metadata model frees Kubernetes data from data gravity, enabling instant data mobility over both distance and time.
Jacob Cherian, who steered ionir through development and launch of the company’s transformational technology, continues to drive product strategy and development in the newly created position of chief product officer.
