McDermott new director of infrastructure analytics for Brocade APJ

By

A 16-year veteran of storage, cloud consulting and architect roles, Paddy McDermott, has joined Brocade Networking.

Brocade  has announced his appointment as director of infrastructure analytics for Asia Pacific Japan (APJ). Based in Sydney, McDermott will be responsible for delivering the value proposition of the Brocade Analytics Monitoring Platform to customers and prospects throughout the region. He reports to Matt Kolon, Brocade vice-president and chief technology officer for APJ.

The Brocade Analytics Monitoring Platform is a purpose-built SAN appliance for measuring application performance and traffic behaviour in a Brocade Gen 6 Fibre Channel fabric network. Designed to reduce costs and create a higher ROI, the platform provides IT departments with the highest levels of monitoring and analytics between servers and storage. As a result, organisations can better ensure predictable performance and operational stability for their IT infrastructures.

Kolon said, “McDermott’s appointment is crucial in helping businesses throughout the region gain much-needed visibility into the performance of their SAN environments, not to mention improving the ROI for storage infrastructures through in-depth, fabric-wide metrics. We are focused on helping businesses get the actionable intelligence they need to maximise performance across their data centres and ensure that they meet application delivery SLAs.”

Before joining Brocade, McDermott held a variety of storage and cloud consulting and architect roles. He has an in-depth understanding of data centre and cloud architecture, with strategic design and consulting experience at companies such as Telstra, Hitachi Data Systems, Dell, Sun Microsystems, and StorageTek. Most recently, McDermott spent five years as principal architect and senior solutions consultant at Virtual Instruments, performing network analytics on critical customer applications and virtualised infrastructure.

McDermott said, “As a pure-play networking company, Brocade is uniquely positioned to provide predictive analytics and actionable intelligence that is vital to maximising performance across the data centre. I am excited about assuming this new role and the prospect of working closely with our customers to leverage the network as a platform for innovation, through our proven data and storage network fabrics, management tools, and open approach.”
