David Bailey Joins Hammerspace to Lead Technical Account Management for Strategic Partners and Customer Advocacy

San Mateo, Calif. – August 8, 2023 – Hammerspace, the Data Orchestration company fueling the Next Data Cycle for enterprises, today announced the appointment of industry veteran David Bailey as Senior Technical Account Manager. Bailey will be responsible for working with strategic partners providing technical account management, training, and pre-sales engineering support.  Additionally, he will  build and nurture relationships with the company’s growing global customer base to help enterprise and public sector organizations make unstructured data a global resource and dynamically orchestrate their data across multiple vendors and operators, without creating unnecessary data silos.

Bailey has a track record of helping customers adopt and build strategic differentiation with innovative new technologies. He was an early employee at Isilon and then Qumulo and drove efforts at both companies to build market-leading customer adoption and satisfaction ratings. He has specialized in data storage and file systems for more than 30 years, assisting customers across industry vertical markets and use cases, including media and entertainment, genomics, machine learning, cloud applications, research imaging and scientific applications. He has served as a technical specialist and customer evangelist within system engineering, sales enablement, and partner alliances teams of organizations including DDN, Qumulo, IBM and Dell EMC (now Dell Technologies). 

“Dave is an incredible communicator with deep technical knowledge, business intelligence, and a passion for customer success,” said Tony Asaro, Senior Vice President of Strategy and Business Development. “With nearly three decades’ of technical experience with data-driven organizations and storage infrastructure, Dave will be a tremendous asset to our strategic partners and global customers that seek to gain insights and value from their unstructured data.”

Hammerspace’s Data Orchestration System makes unstructured data a global resource, enabling teams to access, activate and monetize their data and organizations to dynamically orchestrate their data across multiple vendors and operators – all without interrupting user access or creating unnecessary data silos. Organizations have struggled for decades with the challenge of using file data outside the data center or cloud region where it was created. This limitation constrains the speed of research, innovation and growth of data-driven businesses. Hammerspace’s solution unifies all data across storage silos into a single namespace, delivers intelligent and efficient data orchestration, and provides high-performance local data access to remote applications and users wherever they reside around the world.

“I’ve been following Hammerspace for years and have been consistently impressed with the team’s unique and visionary approach to data orchestration that revolutionizes how unstructured data is accessed and managed,” said Bailey. “I look forward to helping our innovative customers to  utilize and control their distributed  and siloed data, and ultimately transform their businesses.”
