Bocada is the latest storage company to benefit from the revolving door of Sun's senior storage management ranks. Nancy Hurley has become Bocada's VP marketing, leaving her positon as Sun's senior director of the storage product group at Sun, David Yen's organisation. Mark Canepa, James Whitemore, Brenda Zawatski; the list grows longer and shows to me that the creation of a single storage team with a shared vision from the combination of Sun and StorageTek may still be proving problematical.
At Sun Hurley looked after data management and data protection plus enterprise storage software management. Bocada's data protection reporting business is a good fit to this experience. She joined Sun comparatively recently, during Mark Canepa's tenure, after many years as a senior analyst with ESG.
