Timm Hoyt Joins Atlantis Executive Team to Lead Global Partner Sales and Alliances

Industry Veteran Appointed to Drive Rapid Software-Defined Storage and Hyper-Converged Market Expansion and Revenue Growth for Atlantis

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwired - August 03, 2015) - Atlantis Computing®, the leading provider of Software-Defined Storage, today announced the appointment of Timm Hoyt as vice president of worldwide partner sales and alliances for Atlantis. He is responsible for developing a world-class partner sales organization to deliver the Atlantis USX™ SDS platform and recently released Atlantis HyperScale™ all-flash hyper-converged appliance to enterprise and public sector customers.

"Timm Hoyt will be a key part of our strategy to work closely with partners to change the economics of the data center and increase agility, efficiency and resilience for their customers," said Chetan Venkatesh, CEO of Atlantis. "Timm and his team's support will help Atlantis partners grow business opportunities in IT modernization and make all-flash storage more affordable for every application."

As vice president of worldwide sales and marketing at Skyera, Hoyt led a team that delivered record revenue growth, rich partner enablement programs, and client conversion that resulted in an acquisition by Western Digital/HGST. He brings nearly 20-years of experience in leading corporate strategy, channel development, OEM distribution, and high-performing global direct and indirect sales teams.

He previously held various global sales and partner leadership roles at Brocade, spanning North America and EMEA. Hoyt is an alumnus of St. Mary's College of California and Harvard Business School.

"Atlantis is at the tipping point in the storage industry -- it is clear the 'status quo' for how organizations store and manage their data is no longer a viable option," said Hoyt. "Atlantis is disrupting the storage disrupters by combining the proven power and performance of Atlantis USX with the turnkey, radically priced Atlantis HyperScale appliance. I am enthused to lead the best-in-class sales, channel and partner team making that vision a reality."

Specifically, Hoyt highlighted the flexibility of the enterprise-grade SDS platform and Atlantis HyperScale to deliver all-flash performance at half the price of alternatives, while enabling faster IT service delivery and more effective business continuity. Global Atlantis resellers, distributors and OEM partners are well-positioned to provide immense return on investment for customers while being highly profitable as part of the new generation of storage innovation.
