Subramanian holds a master’s in Computer Science from Penn State University and a master’s in Business Administration from the University of Chicago’s Booth School of Business.
Subramanian’s appointment occurred inline with Exablox’s April 2013 launch of OneBlox, a cloud managed, scale-out, object-based storage appliance solution designed to solve businesses’ most common storage pain points. OneBlox features patent-pending technology to provide a cloud-managed solution featuring leading edge enterprise features, such as inline deduplication, continuous data protection and zero-configuration storage expansion.
“Today’s storage needs have created an explosive demand for innovative solutions that are powerful, scalable and easy to use, all while remaining cost-accessible. Exablox is poised to meet that need for organizations of all sizes. I am thrilled to be joining the company’s all-star team, which includes fellow executives who hold decades of storage industry experience.”
