Longtime VMware Exec Named Named CIO Of Rubrik


By Peter High. Published on Forbes

Rubrik, a Palo Alto, CA based company that delivers a single platform to manage and protect data in the cloud, at the edge, and on-premises, has named longtime VMware executive, Avon Puri, as its first chief information officer. As CIO, he has three mandates. First, to assemble the infrastructure to support the company’s growth to $1 billion in revenue and beyond. (In a release earlier this year, the company noted that it had achieved $300 million in global bookings run-rate.) He noted, “By infrastructure, I am referring not only to the technology necessary to support our growth, but the architecture, as well as the people and processes necessary to do so.”

His second mandate is based on the company’s leadership position in data management and protection. Puri noted, “We need to foster data intelligence in all that we do and remain top of the class.”
