John Spiers is a founder of LeftHand Networks. John’s early days started with the development of the storage industries’ first hard disk drive for the IBM PC XT. 23 years later, John is still helping blaze the trail for next generation storage technologies.
Having also worked as a software engineer and the head of an IT department for years, John has a unique understanding of the challenges IT customers face day-to-day. If he’s not educating and helping customers architect their storage solutions, he’s out bouncing his ideas off the industry’s “brain trust.”
John is an outspoken advocate of IP convergence and is passionate about the transformation of complicated IT environments into consolidated, simply managed data centers that leverage advances in clustering and virtualization technology.
