MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 06/27/12 -- Violin Memory, Inc., provider of one of the world's fastest and most scalable flash Memory Arrays, today announced Jagdeep (JD) Singh as vice president of worldwide customer advocacy. With more than 20 years of customer service and support success at companies like Aruba Networks, Nortel Networks and 3Com, Singh will actively drive the growth and development of Violin's global service and support strategy, an essential element in accelerating the adoption of Violin's flash based storage systems for business critical applications.

"Flash is the future of the storage industry, fueled by virtualization, cloud technologies and big data analytics, and Violin Memory is poised to be a dominant player in what will be a disruptive transformation in this industry," said JD Singh.

"At Violin, we've always had a customer-first philosophy, and we're continuously striving to deliver exceptional service and support to all of our end users around the world," said Don Basile, CEO of Violin Memory. "Singh brings decades of strategic and innovative customer advocacy experience to Violin. He will be instrumental in expanding and cultivating new and existing customer and partner relationships."

Before joining Aruba, Singh served as the Senior Director of Global Customer Advocacy at Nortel Networks, where he led a worldwide customer service organization of more than 500 professionals for Nortel's Content Delivery Business Unit. He also held positions at 3Com, Auspex Systems and Tandem Computers.
