Grahame Morrison, E-Series & BEAST Product Director, Nexsan, A StorCentric Company
I started my career in the storage industry in the mid 80’s as a cleanroom production engineer making “Winchester” 5 ¼” disk drives for IBM. The first disk I helped produce had the then jaw-dropping capacity of 10MB! After multiple roles at IBM, I became the engineering manager for the resultant storage startup – Xyratex. As Xyratex’s business grew I became VP of Server and Enclosure Development, growing the engineering team to 150 engineers and project managers in the UK, USA, India, and Malaysia. We helped deliver five generations of industry-leading hardware and software products.
I joined Nexsan in 2014 as the Director of Product Development for the E-Series P and BEAST high-density storage products. As the block storage Product Manager, I work closely with sales, marketing, and channel partners to ensure that the roadmap of new features/functions meets end-user needs. I am now also focusing on our next generation of products which will provide even greater performance and enterprise functionality while maintaining our industry-leading cost benefits.
