Sun installs new storage equipment

Appoints new storage VP

In brief Sun has promoted tape management group VP Nigel Dessau to VP for the whole of storage marketing and business operations.

The move continues the march of a new guard at Sun, following the departure of lifer Scott McNealy as CEO. Dessau will report to another of new CEO Jonathan Schwartz' appointments - data management group EVP David Yen.

Spokeswoman Michelle Parkinson told eWEEK the transfer was designed "to further align the storage group with Sun's other business units - servers, software, sales and services".

Dessau was a 19-year IBM veteran but joined Sun in the StorageTek acquisition last year. ®
