DataTorrent Scales Up Leadership, Brings on Hadoop Pioneer as Strategic Advisor

Industry Veterans to Accelerate Expansion and Adoption of Real Time Streaming Data Analysis Platform

SANTA CLARA, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/14/14 -- DataTorrent, creator of the world's leading real-time stream processing platform on Hadoop, today announced the expansion of its executive team with the appointments of John Fanelli as vice president of marketing, Henry Sohn as vice president of business operations, and Hortonworks co-founder and Hadoop development team leader Eric Baldeschwieler as strategic advisor. The new hires will help drive the company's go-to-market strategy, software business model, and also guide technological innovation for real-time streaming analytics and scalable ingestion on Hadoop 2.0.

Prior to joining DataTorrent, Fanelli served in a variety of marketing leadership roles at Citrix, where he was responsible for the $1.6 billion virtual desktops and apps product line. Fanelli has also lead marketing teams at LeftHandNetworks, Wind River and Sun Microsystems. Fanelli will be responsible for all aspects of DataTorrent's marketing, including corporate marketing, demand generation, product marketing, and product management.

Sohn joins DataTorrent from Morado Venture Partners. Prior to Morado, he served as Vice President and Chief of Staff to the CTO at Yahoo! Inc., and also held leadership positions at Flurry and Gateway. At DataTorrent, he will drive strategic alliances, systems integrator partnerships, and overall revenue acceleration.

"John and Henry are valuable additions to our leadership team at a pivotal time in our company growth," said Phu Hoang, CEO and co-founder, DataTorrent. "As companies across all industries embrace real-time streaming data analytics to handle the massive amounts of data they need to ingest, their combined experience and management depth will accelerate adoption of DataTorrent with both startups and large enterprises."

As a strategic advisor, Baldeschwieler will provide advice to DataTorrent's team as they continue to optimize the company's real-time streaming analytics platform for Hadoop 2.0. Prior to his current work as an independent advisor, he was the founding CEO and then CTO of Hortonworks, which spun off from Yahoo! in 2011 to bring Yahoo's Hadoop expertise to the Enterprise market. At Yahoo!, Baldeschwieler staffed and lead the original Hadoop engineering team, which took Apache Hadoop from a prototype to today's widely used infrastructure.

"As Hadoop's executive leader since its beginning and a long-time colleague at Yahoo!, Eric Baldeschwieler will be a critical strategic advisor to our engineering team as we continue to refine and build out our streaming analytics platform," said Amol Kekre, CTO and co-founder, DataTorrent. "We are thrilled to be working with him again and look forward to the insights he'll be able to provide our team."

"The Data Torrent platform brings reliable high performance event processing to the Hadoop platform, enabling faster, lower latency and more cost effective solutions to key big data problems," said Baldeschwieler. "I'm excited to be joining their great team as a strategic advisor."
