His thirty years of technical expertise and design innovation are legendary. He has led three major waves of innovation in enterprise data storage, including: using fixed block architecture disks for mainframe storage; developing the Symmetrix high-end storage systems, the first that enabled multiple open system servers to connect to the same storage over SCSI; and finally, the development of the first truly scalable grid storage system, which he developed at XIV Ltd., a startup that was later acquired by IBM.
