EMC Cloud Czar packs up and goes for a hike

Ex-Atmos boss leaves after product lines re-jigged

3 Big data security analytics techniques

EMC Cloud Czar Mike Feinberg has left the Hopkinton-based storage biz after a rejig of product lines, El Reg can reveal.

His disappearance from EMC's Exec Bios webpage caused some talk among our correspondent's contacts - an older version can be found here.

According to EMC's PR folk, senior veep Feinberg has left to "pursue other interests" some seven years after he rocked up at the vendor from Morgan Stanley. He was the GM and SVP of EMC's Cloud Infrastructure Group, and a former GM for the Atmos line.

Atmos products are now integrated in the Advanced Software (AS) unit run by divisional president Amitabh Srivastava.

AS layers its ViPR product across EMC's physical storage arrays: VMAX; VNX; Isilon; and Atmos, with its object storage. EMC is also adding its own object storage data services protocol, which can use any underlying ViPR-supported physical array.

There is some dissent within EMC's ranks about overlapping object storage technologies and systems.

The word on the street is that Feinberg is at a super stealthy startup and has recruited some former Atmos engineers to join him.

El Reg asked EMC for a comment and a spokesperson told us, "As we pulled Atmos, Centera and ViPR together to work on an integrated Object strategy (under Srivastava), Mike Feinberg left to pursue new opportunities. I've not heard whether he's joined another organization." ®
