GridGain Expands Board of Directors with S. 'Sundi' Sundaresh

Industry Veteran Brings Broad Technology Perspective to In-Memory Innovator

FOSTER CITY, Calif., Oct. 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- GridGain™ Systems (Gridgain.com), the company that provides a complete In-Memory Computing infrastructure stack, today announced that S. 'Sundi' Sundaresh has joined its board of directors. As the former CEO and President of Adaptec, Sundaresh brings to GridGain more than 15 years of successful leadership experience in the technology industry.

"Businesses are deluged with an incomprehensible volume of data, which they need to analyze in real-time in order to compete in today's market," said Sundaresh. "Unfortunately traditional infrastructure can't handle this. With GridGain, we're re-educating the industry on how they're going to have to rethink computing for new businesses challenges."

The GridGain software suite -- which includes high performance computing, streaming, and In-Memory Database, as well as an industry first In-Memory accelerator for Hadoop -- enables companies to innovate ahead of the business cycle by doing every data-oriented task much, much faster, conquering challenges that are beyond the capabilities of traditional technology.

"Sundi Sundaresh has a complete perspective on where technology has been and where it is going," said Nikita Ivanov, CEO and Co-founder, GridGain. "This depth and breadth of understanding is crucial to GridGain's mission, as In-Memory Computing technology is an indispensable component of next generation computing."

Having served in various capacities as CEO, general manager, board member (public and private) and senior executive at top companies, Sundaresh has delivered profitable business growth; completed mergers, acquisitions, divestitures; and raised capital. He has run both well-established and start-up organizations with up to 1500 people and revenues up to $1B in sectors ranging from servers and storage to networking and telecom. He will leverage his diverse experience with both products (systems and software) and go-to-market models (enterprise direct, OEM, VARs/SIs) to guide GridGain as it makes the benefits of In-Memory computing available to all organizations.

Sundaresh was named to the board of directors of SandForce in June 2010. He holds a B.Tech in Electrical Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology, Madras, an M.Eng in Electrical Engineering from Cornell University, and an MBA from The Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania.
