Terascala expands executive team

10 Jul 2014 Boston - Alan Swahn, a former vice president of product management for Flexera Software, has joined Terascala's executive team as vice president of marketing. Terascala's software when combined with leading compute and storage systems from Dell and NetApp create the highest performance and most reliable solutions for processing Big Data.

Alan Swahn has been appointed to guide Terascala's channel expansion and broaden its product portfolio. His leadership in start-ups and bringing new ideas to market is perfectly suited to manage Terascala's growth stage with an eye to making Terascala synonymous with high performance computing and managing Big Data.

According to Alan Swahn, "There is transformation underway from all-about-the-app to all-about-the-data with the power to change our quality of life and how we operate in society through insights into personal medicine, energy exploration, security, competitive purchasing, and planetary change. Terascala is uniquely positioned to manage the largest HPC systems and their associated complexity. Our software identifies component problems - servers, disks, cables, network, file system - and initiates failover to keep workloads running at peak performance. Our system-level high availability is required to minimize downtime for these complex systems."

"Terascala is the gold standard in HPC management software and at the centre of the Big Data revolution", stated Steve Butler, CEO of Terascala. "Alan brings depth in marketing and business development to expand our OEM business worldwide."

Prior to joining Terascala, Alan Swahn was vice president of marketing and business development at ManageSoft that was acquired by Flexera Software in FY2010. He also co-founded LightSpeed Semiconductor, where he was instrumental in defining a new market category for single mask programmable ASICs. Alan Swahn was part of two start-ups that had successful IPOs - Viewlogic Systems and Daisy Systems. Alan Swahn holds a BS in Electrical Engineering with High Honours from Rochester Institute of Technology and an AEET with Highest Distinction from Penn State University.
