He is responsible for executing the launch of the company’s new PartnerONE program and for expanding the global presence of the company’s Enterprise Storage Platform.

Cordero, is an industry veteran with a proven track record of success, building and growing best of breed channel programs for leading organizations. He joins StorONE after serving in similar posts at technology companies such as Yellowbrick Data, Diamanti, Blue Medora, Rubrik Inc., Tegile Systems, StorSimple, and Data Domain. He previously worked with StorONE CEO and co-founder Gal Naor at Storwize, where he served as vice president of worldwide channel sales.  At StorONE, he is tasked with ensuring the success of PartnerONE, the company’s program for resellers and service providers looking to simplify their go-to-market strategies while helping their customers overcome storage infrastructure challenges.

“Having observed the maturation and the lack of innovation over the past 15 years and the constant need for solutions that satisfy capacity and performance demands can be both a blessing and a curse,” said Cordero. “While that demand means that opportunities abound, it also means that vendors haven’t found the magic bullet to satisfy customers’ exacting requirements. StorONE’s results-driven technology may finally be the solution that truly satisfies problems by making storage better. I look forward to helping deliver the S1 Enterprise Storage Platform to organizations throughout the world in a way that costs less, improves data integrity, and accelerates performance.”

The S1 Enterprise Storage Platform simplifies organizations’ storage infrastructures while dramatically reduces costs. It provides IT professionals with a solution that exceeds the objectives of software-defined storage, creating a storage platform the meets all present storage needs and is ready for future innovations. The platform is also protocol-independent, including fibre, iSCSI, NFS, SMB, and S3. All members of the Enterprise Storage Platform are available on-premises or in the cloud and come with the same enterprise class feature set, driven by the same interface, which significantly reduces the cost of storage operation.
