Robin Systems Bolsters Executive Team with New CTO and VP Product Management

Partha Seetala from Symantec and Razi Sharir from CA Technologies are Latest Management Additions

MILPITAS, Calif., Dec. 3, 2015 – Robin Systems, a trailblazer in reinventing IT infrastructure for increasingly data-centric enterprises, today announced two key additions to the company’s executive ranks as Partha Seetala joined Robin as chief technology officer and Razi Sharir joined as vice president, Product Management.

“At Robin we are focused on delivering our Data‐Centric Infrastructure software to bring tremendous business advantage to our customers. Razi and Partha have extensive experience developing and deploying products which enabled users to make great strides in their productivity, the kind of game-changing advantage Robin also offers,” said Robin Systems’ founder Krishna Yeddanapudi. “I am very excited to have them on board – both are stellar additions to our team.”

With more than 16 years of technology and product expertise, Seetala joins Robin from Symantec’s information management business, known as Veritas, where he was distinguished engineer and senior director of Engineering, and where he conceived, architected and led engineering teams to take multiple products from concept to market in the scale out storage, distributed systems, content-aware file systems and information analytics space. He was also an adviser on multimillion-dollar product lines including NetBackup Appliance, Cluster File System, Veritas Cluster Server and Information Fabric. Prior positions include serving as architect at Kazeon Systems – later acquired by EMC – and architect at Veritas Technologies. He holds a master’s degree in Computer Science and Engineering from the University of Minnesota.

Sharir, a veteran product management executive, joins Robin from CA Technologies where he led the SaaS Center of Excellence and Product Management for the team which developed a container-based Enterprise PaaS geared for modern application economy. Prior to CA, Razi led Xeround, a startup which provided database SaaS and was second only to Amazon Web Services’ Relational Database Service in terms of popular adoption. Razi formed and ran the Innovation Lab at BMC Software and started his professional career at Microsoft in various senior positions with the OS and Desktop Technologies international product groups. He holds a master’s degree from Tel Aviv University.

These executive additions are just the most recent notable developments at Robin. In October the company announced closing its latest funding round, which was led by DN Capital, Hasso Plattner and USAA. In August the company added Chief Executive Officer Premal Buch, who joined the company from semiconductor maker Altera Corporation.
