Clustrix Expands Executive Team to Capitalize on Rapid Growth in the NewSQL Market
Global Tech Sales Veteran Judi Feeley Joins the Clustrix Team
San Francisco, Calif. – March 6, 2012 – Clustrix announced today the appointment of Judi Feeley as vice president of sales. Feeley joined Clustrix from Blue Coat Systems where she led the Strategic Accounts sales organization as vice president of sales. This new appointment will allow Clustrix to capitalize on the growing global opportunities for NewSQL in both the web and enterprise segments.
A global executive with more than 25 years of successful experience accelerating the revenue growth of technology organizations, Feeley worked for companies such as SalesForce.com, VERITAS Software (later Symantec), NetFrame Systems and HP. Her accomplishments include building a global accounts organization and growing product and support revenue by more than 50 percent in the UK and France at VERITAS Software, where she was a managing director.
“It is a perfect time to accelerate our business and Judi’s international web and enterprise experience makes her a great addition to our growing team,” said Robin Purohit, Clustrix president and CEO. “Our current customers are building new transactional applications in hot market segments such as social networking, global e-commerce, SaaS and healthcare, and they grow fast, reaching millions of users almost overnight. The Clustrix product provides them both simplicity and scale-out capabilities without giving up the richness of SQL, so they can focus on growing their business. We look forward to Judi's contribution in building a world-class global sales team.”
“When I first talked to Clustrix, I was impressed with their fundamental invention of a true, scale-out relational database to support big-data applications. Even more, I was impressed with the radical simplicity of the Clustrix database appliance,” said Judi Feeley. “I have heard it from Clustrix customers already: the challenge and complexity of scaling or sharding the database are gone, and now the focus can shift completely to application innovation. I believe Clustrix is in the right place at the right time, and I am looking forward to helping them accelerate the growth of the business.”
Last month, Clustrix announced the availability of the Clustrix Development Kit as a free download of a software-only environment that simulates the hardware components of the Clustrix database appliance.
Clustrix is the leader in NewSQL databases for transactional big-data applications. The company's initial offering is a radically simple database appliance that enables applications to scale to unlimited users, transactions and data, eliminates database sharding and automates fault tolerance.
Clustrix is located in San Francisco, California, with branch offices in Seattle and London. It is founded and led by successful serial entrepreneurs and executives from companies such as Isilon, Rackspace, AOL, HP, Mercury Interactive, and VERITAS, and is backed by Sequoia Capital, U.S. Venture Partners (USVP), and ATA Ventures.
