Virtual Instruments Grows Emea Team with Vp Appointment of Ex-Ibm Executive

Virtual Infrastructure Optimisation Specialist Expands EMEA Presence

(PresseBox) (London, UK, ) Virtual Instruments, a leader in storage area network (SAN) and virtual infrastructure optimisation solutions, today announced that Jason Tooley has joined the company as VP of Sales for EMEA. This appointment follows Virtual Instruments' continued fast growth over the past two years and will allow the team to better meet the needs of its European customers while focussing on expanding its market reach in the region.

Tooley has already successfully driven high-value solution sales into Fortune 1000 companies in multiple sectors including financial services, telecommunications, government and managed service providers. Prior to joining Virtual Instruments he led the EMEA and Latin American teams at Mformation Technologies where he worked with many large customers including Vodafone, Telefonica and Deutsche Telekom. Before that he spent three years at Micromuse; following its acquisition by IBM Tooley was appointed Business Unit Executive for Tivoli in the UK, Ireland and Africa.

"Virtual Instruments is one of the hottest companies around, one that truly stands out from the rest because it's the only real-time SAN and virtual infrastructure monitoring solution available today," said Jason Tooley, Virtual Instruments' VP of Sales for EMEA. "When I looked at its technology I decided I wanted to be part of this company because it will be one of the next big storage infrastructure players."

"Our customers include many of the largest organisations in the world, and they demand a higher level of open systems availability and performance as they move to a virtualised infrastructure of servers and storage. Jason has spent his career working with large enterprise customers and deeply understands the challenges that a lack of comprehensive I/O visibility can bring," said Sean Maxwell, Virtual Instruments' VP of Worldwide Sales. "Therefore he is ideally positioned to take our virtual infrastructure optimisation solutions into these organisations to help them improve the performance, availability and utilisation of their infrastructure. I am confident that with Jason on board, Virtual Instruments will accelerate its growth in EMEA."

Virtual Instruments' VirtualWisdom® software and SANInsight hardware allow IT administrators to monitor and analyse their storage and virtualised IT infrastructures in order to optimise their business-critical applications and productivity. Notable EMEA-based customers include BarclayCard, Halifax Bank of Scotland (now Lloyd's Banking Group), Groupama, and Unilever.
