GridGain Names Max Herrmann as Executive VP of Marketing

Brings 15 Years of Experience from Microsoft, Calista Technologies, and Sun Microsystems to In-memory Computing Leader

FOSTER CITY, Calif., April 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- GridGain Systems (GridGain.com), provider of the leading open source In-Memory Computing Platform, today announced the appointment of Max Herrmann as Executive Vice President of Marketing. Herrmann comes to GridGain from Microsoft's cloud and enterprise marketing team and will lend his expertise to growing awareness and adoption of in-memory computing across the enterprise, cloud computing providers and the developer community.

"GridGain is poised to deliver the next generation of computing infrastructure that addresses the unprecedented demand for performance and scalability driven by  big data, cloud, mobility and social networks – and as all of these technologies become more entwined with the Internet of Things," said Herrmann. "I'm thrilled to be on the cutting-edge of this movement, which I believe is set to change computing as we know it today."

Last month, GridGain released its In-Memory Computing Platform to open source through an Apache 2.0 license, making it the most comprehensive and accessible solution of its kind. The company has gained tremendous momentum within the last year, securing $10 million in series B funding in July, and appointing Abe Kleinfeld as its CEO in December.

"We are foremost impressed by Max's ability to develop, educate and grow markets for emerging technologies," said GridGain's CEO, Abe Kleinfeld. "Through his expertise, we are confident that GridGain will accelerate adoption of in-memory computing and speed innovation across all sectors of business."

Herrmann spent several years at Microsoft where he guided product marketing efforts for Windows Server datacenter and cloud infrastructure software. Prior to Microsoft, Herrmann was the Vice President of Marketing at Calista Technologies, where he created the company's product and go-to-market strategy through their eventual acquisition by Microsoft. Earlier in his career, he provided marketing leadership to New Moon Systems through two acquisitions by Tarantella and Sun Microsystems, where he drove product management and product marketing for mobile workstyle solutions.

Herrmann holds a master's degree in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Stuttgart, and an MBA from the Technical University of Munich.
