The Chief Operating Officer of Top VAR, Mainline Information Systems, Brings More Than 20 Years of Technology Leadership Experience to Nasuni’s Board

NATICK, Mass. – October 17, 2011 – Nasuni®, the leading provider of next-generation enterprise storage, today announced that John McCarthy, executive vice president and chief operating officer of Mainline Information Systems, has joined Nasuni’s Board of Directors.

Prior to joining Mainline, McCarthy had spent more than two decades leading sales organizations and overseeing operations for technology companies such as EMC, StorageApps, CNT, and Virtual Iron. McCarthy’s insight as the COO of one of North America’s leading value added resellers will prove very valuable as Nasuni continues to expand its channel partner program and drive additional adoption in the end user community.

“Nasuni provides a compelling service that not only addresses IT organization’s concerns about storage capacity, disaster recovery and data availability and access, but also is backed by one of the most stringent SLAs I’ve ever seen,” McCarthy said. “It’s also an interesting opportunity for the channel. I look forward to assisting the company as it grows.”

“John was a member of the Board at my previous company, Archivas, and his service contributed strongly to our success,” said Andres Rodriguez, CEO of Nasuni. “As Nasuni continues to strengthen its ties to the channel, we will benefit a great deal from John’s perspective on the channel as well as adoption of cloud storage in the market as a whole, and his deep experience in the storage technology industry.”

McCarthy’s appointment follows strong growth shown in Nasuni throughout 2011.  In June of this year, Nasuni named Bill Simpson, vice president of worldwide sales signaling its commitment to the channel, and has demonstrated ongoing expansion with additional management appointments, as well as new capabilities and offerings debuted throughout the first half of this year.
