SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jun 6, 2018--Imanis Data, the machine learning data management company for the data driven world, today announced that industry veteran Peter Smails has joined the team as Vice President of Marketing to drive all aspects of marketing strategy and execution.

Smails, who was most recently head of marketing at Datos IO until their acquisition by Rubrik, is a well-known thought leader in the data management industry and will be responsible for taking Imanis Data's disruptive technology to the mass enterprise market, and helping grow and scale the business.

“Now is the perfect time to be bringing someone of Peter’s caliber onto the team,” said John Mracek, CEO of Imanis Data. “The market is ripe for our unique value proposition, and evangelizing our product innovation and customer experience is key to our growth strategy. Now we need to spread the word in order to help enterprises everywhere with our unique value proposition.”

Imanis Data, whose customers include leading global blue chip enterprises, is entering a high growth phase and just closed a $13.5m funding round in March. As enterprises increasingly rely on Hadoop and NoSQL data platforms, Imanis Data offers the industry's only petabyte-scale, machine learning powered data management solution.

“The traditional data management market is open for disruption,” said Smails. “Imanis Data has developed unique machine learning-based technology that no one else has and we’re ideally positioned to become the de facto standard in enterprise data management. I’m excited to take our message to the masses and help scale our business,” said Smails.

Unlike traditional data management solutions with twenty year-old architectures that were developed before the advent of cloud and Big Data, Imanis Data is designed to deliver the cloud scale and performance required by modern Hadoop and NoSQL data platforms including Cassandra, Cloudera, Couchbase, HortonWorks, and MongoDB. Specifically, Imanis Data helps organizations harness the power of their data by delivering solutions that:

Protect – all of their Big Data and NoSQL application data regardless of location to ensure they can recover from data loss in minutes, minimizing the risk of downtime caused by natural or man-made events. Orchestrate – reduce cost and harness the power of hybrid cloud infrastructure by copying, moving, or migrating data to the appropriate location based upon use case, for example, test/dev (with masking and sampling), archiving, analytics, compliance, and DR. Automate – enhance employee productivity by automating data management processes, and create business value by leveraging machine learning to ensure compliance, reduce cost, enable insight, and protect against cyber-attacks.
