His leadership continued through its acquisition by HP in 2010. David’s deep understanding of the storage industry and his strategic vision played a key role in shaping 3PAR’s success.

Before joining 3PAR, David spent 18 years at HP, where he held various executive positions in marketing and general management. His experience encompasses diverse roles in data storage, computing, and networking, both in the United Kingdom and the United States.

David expressed his anticipation of joining Cloudian, stating, “As the enterprise IT landscape shifts towards hybrid-cloud operating models, the power of Cloudian’s native S3 API and scale-out design becomes increasingly evident.  I am eager to contribute to the journey and work alongside the talented team in advancing the success of their hybrid-cloud storage platform.”

“We are thrilled to welcome David Scott to Cloudian’s board of directors. David’s extensive experience and deep industry knowledge will contribute to our vision of ubiquitous cloud-native, S3-compatible storage,” said Michael Tso, CEO of Cloudian. “David’s proven track record as an IT infrastructure visionary aligns seamlessly with our commitment to delivering innovative object storage solutions for the hybrid cloud.”
