Paula Long brings more than 30 years of experience in high-tech innovation to DataGravity. She is an industry expert on enterprise data management, protection and storage. Long has led two major shifts in data management and storage—the first as Co-Founder and Senior Vice President of Products at EqualLogic, where she lead the transition to automated storage management. This capability is now table stakes for any storage appliance, and EqualLogic was acquired by Dell for $1.4 billion in 2008. Long remained at Dell as Vice President of Storage until 2010. The second shift took place when Long became Co-Founder and CEO of DataGravity, a leader in data security focused on protection data in virtual environments.
