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. ®
